Helmet, a band that has influenced and launched a thousand other bands, will release a brand new studio album DEAD TO THE WORLD on Friday October 29th through earMusic and Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
The long anticipated new album – the first in six years – comes with heavy guitar riffs, blasting drums and the distinctive voice of front man Page Hamilton. The album is energy in its purest form. Every track adds its unique flavour to a mix of hard rock, alternative, metal and punk, showing the world again how versatile a rock album can be.
The album was produced by front man Page Hamilton and mixed by award winning record producer, engineer and mixer Jay Baumgardner.
Page Hamilton offered these thoughts on DEAD TO THE WORLD:
“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.” – Page Hamilton, September 2016.
