Helmet Signs To EarMusic, New Album Due This October



Legendary avant-garde metal band Helmet have signed a new record deal with earMusic and will release their first new album in six years. Entitled Dead to The World, the album will release on October 28th.

The album was produced by frontman Page Hamilton and mixed by award-winning record producer, engineer and mixer Jay Baumgardner, Dead to the World will be released in 1 CD digipak, transparent Vinyl and Digital versions. The band will celebrate the release with US tour dates, with direct support coming from frequent touring partners Local H.


Page Hamilton commented on the new album:

“Catch phrases, punchlines, guns, bluster, ammo, incivility, impatience, murder. You, me, us, them, life, liberty and the pursuit of property.

“We disagree, we disrespect, discourse disappears in the age of access. When in doubt GET LOUD! It’s my way or the highway, thank you Lawrence Tierney!

“Religious tchotchkes nailed to the walls of homes above razor-scarred mirrors. Do you meditate, levitate, pray? Live in LA! I’m a huge fan, got a perfume line, smell nice, plan my next move. Threats loom, the bad news network blooms, fear sells. Just get em out, the spying neighbors, suspects, terrorists our forefathers intent. ‘If you don’t like it, leave’ and call it democracy.”
