Honeyhoney Set New Album Release and Announce Ten Dollar Tour

.
honeyhoney Records/Lost Highway have set a October 24th release date for honeyhoney's new full-length album, Billy Jack.

To support the release of Billy Jack, honeyhoney will take their full band on the road for a 41-date nationwide "Ten Buck Tour," a co-headlining trek with indie folk singer-songwriter Joshua James that begins on September 21st--with all tickets priced at $10 or less (service charge and walk-ups not included).

In advance of the tour, honeyhoney will perform a slot at the Sunset Junction Festival on "The Hotel Cafe Presents" stage in Los Angeles at 6:30 pm on Sunday, August 28th.

Here is a little background info on the album we were sent over: Meandering through unique paths in life, Suzanne Santo and Ben Jaffe converged in Los Angeles and immediately found a powerful shared chemistry. It was when the hauntingly voiced Santo sang the songs Jaffe was writing for his band at the time that they knew they had something. Encouraged by a serendipitous relationship with French record executive Bertrand Lamblot, the pair entered a radio contest and won $25,000 to make a record. "Little Toy Gun," their song from a rare early release, found life as a cult favorite, with bands in several states embracing the song in multiple YouTube cover versions. Evoking California's hippie Dust Bowl fringe, honeyhoney's music contains a strong pull of Woody Guthrie-esque folk, vintage Buffalo Springfield, glints of Gram Parsons and bits of Bonnie Raitt's early blues, along with Rickie Lee Jones reality and Bakersfield Saturday nights. Not country, not folk, not rock, it is a hybrid that defies exact definition.
