Dirty Honey has breached the Top Five on the rock radio airplay chart with "When I'm Gone," which is taken from the band's recently released debut EP and currently sits at Number Four.

The Los Angeles-based act has already opened for groups like Guns N' Roses and The Who during its brief existence. Singer Marc LaBelle told us that this is the career he's wanted ever since he was a teenager growing up in Schenectady, New York: ["I started kinda doing gigs in like 7th grade, with my band in school, and you know, when you're just kinda cruising around with your parents, listening to Aerosmith and AC/DC records and singing along, and they're kinda like, 'You're kinda on right now' -- at like 12, 13 years old. But it definitely needed development and I've gotten way better since."] SOUNDCUE (:18 OC: . . . way better since.)

Guitarist John Notto told Billboard about the band's sound, "What we do is from the vinyl prime time era -- the '70s and maybe a touch of early '80s, and '90s, with some modern stuff as well. We try to be like the imaginary baby of all the big bands you can think of -- AC/DC, Aerosmith, Guns N' Roses, Led Zeppelin, the Black Crowes.”

Dirty Honey will hit the road as support for Alter Bridge and Skillet later this month, starting on September 19th in Raleigh, North Carolina.
