As of December, bright new acts Dirty Honey and Mammoth WVH announced a co-headlining tour, to kick off on January 18th in Philadelphia. Rock and roll is back better than ever for the year to come, and the Young Guns Tour will be taking over the nation, just getting things started.
Offering a diverse range of musicianship and skilled craftsmanship in the rock world, Dirty Honey and newly Grammy-nominated act Mammoth WVH, the tour will take place on 31 different dates. Both acts have been making waves throughout their 2021 tours. Dirty Honey has been opening for The Black Crowes, and Mammoth WVH played stadiums with Guns N’ Roses.
In October 2019, Dirty Honey proved with its sexy, bluesy debut single, “When I’m Gone,” that you don’t need a record deal to go all the way to #1 on Billboard’s Mainstream and Hard Rock Charts – the only unsigned artist ever to achieve this. The track was the first song from the band’s self-titled debut EP, produced by Nick DiDia (Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine), recorded in Byron Bay, Australia, and released in March 2019. Dirty Honey’s second single/video, the loaded-with-swagger “Rollin 7s,” went to #3 at Rock Radio (still heading up the charts when COVID changed everything), and its music video has racked up north of seven-million YouTube plays. Between the Fall of 2018 and early 2020, Dirty Honey opened for The Who, Guns N’ Roses, and Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, was tagged as a “do not miss” band at the more than a dozen major N.A. summer festivals they played, performed for SRO crowds at every show on its first-ever U.S. headline tour.
Still independent and not signed to a record label, Dirty Honey’s self-titled debut album hit the streets on April 23, 2021, and made its bow on the Hard Rock Albums Chart at #2. With live concerts starting to open up, the band headed out in June 2021 on a month-long, sold-out U.S. “warm-up” tour, that segued into a nine-week U.S. amphitheater tour as main support for The Black Crowes’ “Shake Your MoneyMaker” U.S tour.
Wolfgang Van Halen has prepared a lifetime to make his first impression with solo band Mammoth WVH. The songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist worked tirelessly on material that would become his self-titled debut album – now available via EX1 Records as a part of his partnership with Explorer1 Music Group. Playing every instrument and singing each and every note, his music presents a personal and powerful perspective, balancing memorable hooks and tight technicality. As many times as audiences have experienced his talent alongside the likes of Tremonti, Clint Lowery, and of course, Van Halen, Wolfgang prepares to step into the spotlight with his own brand – Mammoth WVH – for the very first time now.
The “Young Guns” Tour will support both artists’ self-titled debut albums– Mammoth WVH, and Dirty Honey– both released earlier this year. Both bands saw their debut singles – Dirty Honey’s “When I’m Gone” and Mammoth WVH’s “Distance” – occupy the #1 position on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart. In addition, both bands’ debut albums made quite impressive bows; Mammoth WVH debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart, and Dirty Honey – the band, totally independent with no label affiliation – claimed the #2 position on that chart.
