Dirty Honey & Dorothy unite for “bromance tour experience”

ABC Audio

Dirty Honey‘s California Dreamin’ tour just got even dreamier now that Dorothy‘s joined the bill.

As Dorothy frontwoman Dorothy Martin tells ABC Audio, her band and the “When I’m Gone” rockers are “bros,” so it was only a matter of time before they linked up on the road.

“It just kinda made sense, like, ‘Hey, why don’t we all go out on tour together and have a bromance tour experience?'” Martin says. “I think it’s gonna be a lot of fun.”

Dirty Honey frontman Marc LaBelle adds that he’s excited for Dorothy to bring another “flavor of rock” to the tour lineup.

“I’d say [Dorothy is] a little heavier than us at times, for most of the material,” LaBelle says. “But … she’s got some really soulful [songs], like, ‘Flawless’ to me is a really soulful, more major-y tune that would fit really nicely with our ‘Another Last Time.'”

As for Dirty Honey’s own set, LaBelle is hoping to inject some new material into the show after touring the last year in support of the band’s 2021 self-titled debut.

“I know we’re all really excited to start playing some new material and just seeing what the audience thinks about it, and seeing if we’re on track for the next record,” LaBelle shares.

Martin, meanwhile, is looking forward to playing more new songs off Dorothy’s new album, Gifts from the Holy Ghost, which dropped in April.

“It’s always fun to play new material, because you can’t just play the same songs over and over again,” Martin says. “I know fans wanna hear the hits, or their fan-favorites for every artist at every concert, but … it’s fun for us to play new stuff, it keeps it exciting.”  

Dorothy’s first show with Dirty Honey takes place Wednesday in Portland, Oregon.
