‘”While the main attraction of the evening was the legendary Guns N’Roses,

it was Dirty Honey, the opening act, that proved to be the unexpected highlight. Opening while daylight still lingered, Dirty Honey took control of the stage and quite possibly the entire evening.  Their performance was a burning reminder that the spirit of rock and roll is still very much alive.”

— Jim Gilbert, Nippertown, Saratoga Springs, NY


LOS ANGELES, CA — Wednesday, October 18, 2023 — With the November 3 release of Dirty Honey’s new album, Can’t Find The Brakes, just three weeks away, and the band’s single, “Won’t Take Me Alive,” Top 15 at Rock Radio, Dirty Honey launches its nine-week, 39-date, Can’t Find The Brakes 2023 North American headline tour tonight at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. The trek – which introduces the band’s new drummer, Jaydon Bean, to American audiences – follows Dirty Honey’s first-ever headline tours of the UK and Europe, both of which took place earlier this year and saw every single date sell out with many venues having to move to larger capacity buildings due to ticket demand.

Also today, “Coming Home,” the band’s shatter-your-heart-into-a-million-pieces single, is now available. “Coming Home” is a deeply personal, heartfelt tale of love and life’s everyday challenges that sees the band’s musical lane widening with this unexpected ballad.



Can’t Find The Brakes is the best bluesy, hard rock record since The Black Crowes dropped ‘Southern Harmony’. That’s the biggest, boldest compliment I can give.

Can’t Find The Brakes sounds like a band capable of anything – with a rhythm section like you wouldn’t believe, a singer with that certain something that so few have, and a guitarist who knows that less is so much more, but more is even more!

Dirty Honey is the rock band that they said would never happen again: the saviors of American Hard Rock… you decide, because I’ve already made up my mind.

This album will be looked back on as a future classic.” 

Mark Diggins, The Rockpit/Australia
