Helmet Announce Kings Arms Show
95bFM's Hard, Fast and Heavy is proud to present Helmet, live at the Kings Arms, April 22nd.
Rewriting the rulebook of 90s guitar rock, New York riff lords Helmet delivered one of the defining albums of the era with 1994’s Betty.
The New York legendary riff lords are set to make a triumphant return to the King’s Arms. With no opening act, the first half of the show will be dedicated to the 1994 classic, critically acclaimed album, Betty. Tracks like ‘Wilma’s Rainbow’, ‘Milquetoast’ and ‘Biscuits For Smut’ will be brought to life in recognition of one of the most exciting hard rock records of the 90s. The second half of the show will include a selection of all-time, back catalogue favourites, and tracks from their new record Dead To The World.
Across 27 years and eight studio albums, Page Hamilton and his band Helmet have set the standard for uncompromising and sonically brutal guitar driven rock. Established in 1989, Helmet took the hard rock blueprint of forbearers like Zeppelin, AC/DC and Wire and set it aflame, bringing raw power, volume and an almost mathematical sense of swing to the well-worn form, igniting an all-consuming firestorm that continues to burn incandescent to this day.
