The Press Release:
We told you about our new album 72 Seasons, so what’s next now that we’ve escaped the studio? Hit the road, of course! You want a tour, we’ve got a tour… how about two full years worth of shows?!?!
Over the past few years, we have been so inspired by the dedication and family/community vibe of the fans who traveled to San Francisco for our recent weekend celebrations, first in 2019 with the two S&M2 shows, followed by last year’s 40th Anniversary shows. On top of that, we had a blast being a part of the 2021 Wimmer Festivals when we played two nights in one city, each with a totally different setlist. With all of that in mind, the M72 tour was born!
Tonight’s show was going to be an exciting one for me because I have not been to a rocking concert since the December appearance of the mighty Trans-Siberian Orchestra over at Newark’s Prudential Center. Now it’s not like there weren’t any shows taking place since that point in time but I’ve been working nights and it’s pretty hard to get to all the things that you want to attend when you are trying to earn during the times that the shows are happening. Since my only night off was a Monday I was stoked that I would get to enjoy this “Young Guns Tour” that featured both Dirty Honey and Mammoth WVH at NYC’s famed Webster Hall. I’d seen Dirty Honey once before and was incredibly impressed by both the sound and the delivery of the band and tonight I’d get to add another tick on the sheet about them. Mammon WVH would be a first go-round despite my having enjoyed some of their videos and the music I’d heard so far. Fortunately for all in attendance it was only going to be these two bands. No one was leading off and there wasn’t any terrible local that somehow secured the area gig which we find happening every now and again. If you came here for the Young Guns that was exactly what you were going to get. Dirty Honey would lead off the show and here are my thoughts on them.
Mammoth WVH and Dirty Honey bring their “Young Guns Tour” to NYC after an earlier re-scheduling. All previous tickets will be honored and you don’t want to miss these rising stars if you know what’s good for you.
The Young Guns Tour brings Mammoth WVH and Dirty Honey to the same stage and you’re not going to want to miss this. Please be advised that some Covid-19 protocols could be in place for attendees. Check the venue page before proceeding.
The 64th Annual Grammy Awards Nominees have been revealed in a mile-long list of categories and that’s to be expected with this particular award since it is essentially the Academy Awards of the recording industry. Now, with that being said, as a scribe who leans towards the heavier side of music there are only a few categories that remotely interest me so please peruse below on the nominations in the Rock and Metal Category for the 2022 Awards broadcast.
Best Rock Performance: For new vocal or instrumental solo, duo/group or collaborative rock recordings.
