Dirty Honey has been hard at work on new music during the pandemic, and the band is hoping to release it next year.

In an interview with Loudwire, guitarist John Notto said fans can expect to hear the follow-up to their 2019 self-titled EP in 2021, but whether the release will be a full album or another EP is still undecided.

“There’s no need anymore to put out filler,” said Notto. “We’re kind of the guys who are just like, ‘So why ever put out filler then?’ I mean I love the full album idea, but if we could wait…One thing I do have faith in us is we’re not the quickest songwriters, but if we believe in an idea, we’ll get it to awesome.”

Back in June, Dirty Honey shared a video of how they were working with producer Nick DiDia via Zoom, with the band based in Los Angeles and DiDia based in Australia. Dirty Honey were originally slated to fly to Australia to work with DiDia in person, but the pandemic derailed those plans.

“It ended up being totally fine. I don’t want to promote it as being awesome too much,” said Notto. “But it was pretty smooth, and it was like he was there.”

Fingers crossed we get new Dirty Honey sooner in 2021 than later! We could all use some fun rock songs after this trash fire of a year.
