During quarantine and while in their home studio/rehearsal space, rock favorites Dirty Honey – consisting of Marc LaBelle on vocals, John Notto on guitars, Justin Smolian on bass, and Corey Coverstone on drums – have been writing and demoing new tunes for a future album release. If you recall, the band was forced to cancel their mid-March travel plans to Australia to record their new LP due to the ongoing pandemic.
Specifically, the creative flows took place via Zoom with producer Nick DiDia (Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine), who helped work on the new tracks via his Byron Bay, Australia studio. The band have just posted a video of their Zoom video exchange with DiDia, which you can now check out below.
Regarding the status of the new effort, an announcement from the band’s publicist reads:
In terms of recording plans for the album – when and where – the band is still working out those logistics as they will be determined by any travel restrictions as pertain to COVID-19. Dirty Honey and DiDia are aiming to get into a studio, with everyone together next month, either in Los Angeles or Australia, or, as a backup, via Zoom, with the band in L.A. and DiDia in Australia.
