Unleashing the Powerhouse: Helmet and Cro-Mags

Helmet, the iconic alternative metal band, is set to ignite stages across the US with their Spring 2024 tour, featuring support from the legendary Cro-Mags. This hard-hitting musical extravaganza kicks off on April 14th in Detroit and concludes on May 18th in Pittsburgh. But the excitement doesn’t stop there – Helmet is also slated to make a special appearance at the Sonic Temple festival’s final day on May 19th in Columbus, Ohio.

Helmet, known for their uncompromising blend of heavy, riff-loaded rock, will be showcasing tracks from their latest album, “Left,” released in November 2023 via earMUSIC. After the critical success of “Dead To The World” in 2016, Helmet’s return with “Left” marks another chapter in their influential musical journey spanning over three decades.

Preparing for the Sonic Assault

Live Nation has arranged an exclusive ticket pre-sale for select dates starting Thursday, February 15th, at 10 a.m. local time, using the code “ENERGY.” General ticket sales will commence on Friday, February 16th, at 10 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster. Fans can anticipate a sonic assault fueled by Helmet’s visceral performance, amplified by the infectious energy of Cro-Mags.

Helmet’s Musical Landscape in “Left”

“Left” exhibits Helmet’s signature sound, featuring lead guitarist Page Hamilton, drummer Kyle Stevenson, guitarist Dan Beeman, and bassist Dave Case. The album’s 11 tracks showcase a musical landscape that is taut, muscular, and direct. Hamilton’s lead guitar lines resonate like downed power lines arcing, creating a raw and explosive sonic experience.

Guided by co-producers Jim Kaufman and Mark Renk, and mastered by Howie Weinberg, “Left” reflects unbridled determination, a renewed sense of purpose, and a desire to innovate within the musical language established by Hamilton’s use of drop-D tuning.

A Legacy of Impact and Influence

Helmet’s influence extends across generations, with their songs covered by notable bands like Chevelle, Deftones, Faith No More, Pig Destroyer, and Soulfly. The band’s avant-garde roots, coupled with their major-label success, have solidified Helmet as a key influence on bands such as Godsmack, Korn, Marilyn Manson, Mastodon, Pantera, Queens of the Stone Age, Sepultura, Slipknot, Staind, System of a Down, and Tool.

The Legacy Continues

Despite disbanding in 1997, Helmet experienced a revival in 2004 when Hamilton brought the band back to life. Since then, they’ve continued to tour and record, leaving an indelible mark on the rock and metal landscape. In 2021, Helmet paid homage to Gang of Four’s Andy Gill with a cover of “Into The Ditch” for the tribute album “The Problem Of Leisure: A Celebration Of Andy Gill And Gang Of Four.”
