Following the release of the acclaimed Seeing Eye Dog, Helmet is returning to the stage with Dead To The World, an apocalyptic album that, six years on from the previous record, features eleven powerful tracks filled with anger. Their tour starts in February 2017 and they will be accompanied by the duo Local H.
Helmet emerged in New York, formed by singer and guitarist Page Hamilton. Their debut album, Streap It On (1990), was a hit, which they followed up with their most famous record, Meantime. This album took them to the top of the American charts thanks to their residual leap into the mainstream, making them a source of inspiration for groups such as the Red Hot Chilli Peppers on account of their approach to metal music.
In 1998 the band split after four records and famous hits such as Unsung, Meantime and Rude.
However, when music calls, the musician answers, and in 2004 they returned to the stage with Size Matters. For their comeback they performed with Marilyn Manson, whose peculiar sound also takes its inspiration from the American band.
For this record, and following their 2014 tour, Helmet will be taking to the stage to promote Dead To the World. It features powerful tracks filled with rage, which follow along the same lines as previous records, and includes songs such as Die Alone and Look Alive.
