With a critically acclaimed new single, “Won’t Take Me Alive,” now Top 5 at USA Rock Radio and having spent 8 weeks on the Planet Rock UK playlist. The band well into their extensive, nine-week, 39-date North American headline tour, November 2023 saw Dirty Honey release of its full-length sophomore album, “Can’t Find The Brakes”. Produced by Nick DiDia and recorded at his studio in Byron Bay, Australia this past Spring.

“Can”t Find The Brakes” has been hugely well received by fans and critics alike – an album that shows the breadth of the band’s songwriting. From the grove of opener “Don’t Put Out The Fire” to “Coming Home (Ballad of the Shire),” a profoundly personal, shatter-your-heart-into-a-million-pieces ballad and 180-degree turnabout from the high-energy rock’n’roll the band is known for. From the staccato riffing of “Satisfied” to the bluesy album closer “Rebel Son”, “Can’t Find the Brakes” perfectly distills Dirty Honey.

Dirty Honey has announced the “Can’t Find The Brakes” EU and UK tour in February and March 2024.  The 28-date headline tour takes in 17 countries. Full list of dates below:

The making of “Can’t Find The Brakes”, as told by Marc LaBelle…

“Making the Can’t Find The Brakes album was a completely different experience than making the Dirty Honey album,” said Marc LaBelle. “Covid created a situation where we weren’t really living or experiencing. But, for our new album, we were able to spend time with each other again. We spent more than a month with Nick, our producer, at his studio in Australia. Just getting back into the studio with him – no ZOOM this time – all of us physically being together in the same space allowed us to do some experimenting, all of which contributed to the wide spectrum of emotion on the new album.”
