Official press release:

earMUSIC is happy to welcome Helmet, a band that has influenced and launched a thousand other bands, with the release of their brand new studio album Dead to the World.

The long anticipated new album — the first in six years — comes with heavy guitar riffs, blasting drums and the distinctive voice of frontman Page Hamilton. The album is energy at its purest form. Every track adds its unique flavour to mix of hard rock, alternative, metal and punk, showing the world again how versatile a rock album can be.

Produced by Page Hamilton himself and mixed by award winning record producer, engineer and mixer Jay Baumgardner, Dead to the World will be released as 1CD digipak, transparent vinyl and digital on October 28, 2016 on earMUSIC.

Page Hamilton offered these thoughts:

"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."

01. Life or Death
