HELMET ANNOUNCE FIRST TOUR IN SEVEN YEARS;

READY TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM ‘SIZE MATTERS’ SEPTEMBER 14 ON INTERSCOPE RECORDS

As Helmet get ready to release their first album of new material in seven years--Size Matters, due September 14 on Interscope Records--the band have announced a return to the road beginning September 17 in Atlanta. This five-week club swing marks their first trek in seven years and they’ll return to some of the venues they cut their teeth in including The Bowery Ballroom in New York, the Troubadour in Los Angeles, the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC and Slim’s in San Francisco, with the idea of “filling the room with a roar," according to singer/guitarist/founder Page Hamilton in a recent interview with Billboard.com.

This tour announcement coincides with the arrival of Size Matters’ first single “See You Dead” at radio stations nationwide. “The song is about a relationship that ended in a nasty way,” reveals Hamilton, who adds that “the lyric was inspired by the line ‘I’d rather see you dead little girl than to be with another man’ from The Beatles song ‘Run For Your Life’ off the Rubber Soul album.”

For the fall tour, Hamilton will be joined by bandmates Chris Traynor (guitars), John Tempesta (drums) and Frank Bello (bass). Look for them to draw on songs from such memorable albums as Strap It On, Meantime, Betty and Aftertaste, as well as Size Matters. Produced by Hamilton with assistance from producer Jay Baumgardner and former Nine Inch Nails associate Charlie Clouser, the album is already building a critical buzz.
