Helmet To Release New Album Monochrome in July, BIG Big Tour

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
Helmet's back, and they've got news. The New York wall of noise artists have a new album on the way, titled Monochrome, and it's due out on July 18th. The band chose to work with Wharton Tiers, a collaborator on earlier albums like Meantime and Strap It On, to help them get back to the more organic sounds of those releases.

Helmet used to share a rehearsal space with Sonic Youth, who has frequently partnered in crime with Wharton Tiers. “Wharton was my only choice to co-produce this project with me,” said guitarist and vocalist Page Hamilton. “Apart from the sounds he can get in his studio, he was also a major influence in terms of helping me shape my guitar playing.”

Helmet emerged in the 90's as an off-kilter, jazz influenced, deafening wall of sound band. They fused post-punk stylings with loud chords and lots of energy. They influenced bands like the Cows and labels like Amphetimine Reptile. Helmet will headline the Vans Warped Tour this summer.
