DIRTY HONEY Makes a Single Take Count with New Music Video “Another Last Time”

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Dirty Honey have released a brand-new music video, “Another Last Time,” a real-time, meticulously crafted escapade that immerses the viewer into the action from the first frame to the last, unfolding as one continuous, five-minute take.  Four separate, but intertwining story-lines, take place simultaneously at a no-frills, budget motel someplace out in the California desert – a married cop and his mistress, a cheating gambler, two girls’ shared thrill of committing robbery, and a drug-scoring addict.   You can check out the video below

With the band’s previous music videos having been primarily performance-based, Dirty Honey’s Marc LaBelle and APLUSFILMZ’ director Scott Fleishman (Dirty Honey’s “Rollin’ 7s,” “California Dreamin’,” and “The Wire” videos) wanted to do something completely different for this video.  Said LaBelle, “The song’s lyrics tell the story of a toxic relationship you can’t seem to get out of, and you keep going back for more.  But it’s as much a song about any addiction or compulsion, anything you just can’t kick – drugs, money, danger, whatever.  Shooting the video the way we did presented a real challenge, but I think that when you take on doing something special like this and you succeed, you come out with something really great.  And I think we did.”

Fleishman adds that shooting this video was no small feat.  “This was an ambitious technical undertaking, especially as in this video, the camera was as much a performer as a recorder.  Also, we used an anamorphic lens that captures an extremely wide viewpoint and really puts the viewer in the room.  Every sequence was planned and timed out to the second and rehearsed multiple times.  Everything had to be in synch, the actors’ performances, the camera movements, particularly when the camera emerged from one of the motel rooms to find Marc on the walkway singing the song’s lyrics.  It took us about 12 hours to shoot this video, and we probably did a total of 40 or so takes to get it all right.”

The “Another Last Time” video features Derek PhillipsBilly Riggins from the NBC-TV series “Friday Nights Lights” – TikTok influencers Elizabeth Marochok and Emma Jade, and actress Christiana Lucas from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “The Last Stand.”

Dirty Honey just launched the Young Guns tour, the 34-city, co-headline trek with Mammoth WVH, with both bands firmly intent on proving that rock’n’roll is very much alive and well.  Upcoming tour dates and ticket purchasing information can be accessed found below.

Both of these “young guns” spent their summer on high-profile U.S. tours — DIRTY HONEY with THE BLACK CROWES and MAMMOTH WVH with GUNS N’ ROSES. With only two live gigs under their collective belt, MAMMOTH WVH‘s tour initiation was a baptism by fire, opening for the iconic GUNS N’ ROSES in stadiums. At the end of the tour, in Hollywood, Florida, GUNS N’ ROSES brought Wolfgang Van Halen back onstage to join them performing “Paradise City”.

After selling out their U.S. headline tour in June, DIRTY HONEY brought their sexy, bluesy rock’ n’ roll to amphitheaters with THE BLACK CROWES. Vocalist Marc LaBelle grew up listening to the CROWES, so this tour was truly a dream come true. Winning over those who had primarily come to see THE BLACK CROWESDIRTY HONEY received standing ovations at the majority of the tour’s 35 shows. Not bad for a still-breaking opening act.

The “Young Guns” tour is in support of both artist’s 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.

“People who come to our shows are going to see two bands who are looking to prove that rock’ n’ roll is definitely very much alive and well,” said DIRTY HONEY‘s Marc LaBelle. “We both carry the weight of that on our shoulders, and there’s a lot to prove.”
