Is the New Helmet Song “Bad News”?
The latest incarnation of Page Hamilton’s Helmet has released a new song, “Bad News.” The title obviously lends itself to all sorts of tomfoolery, but there’s no real tomfoolery to be had, ’cause it’s actually pretty good.
What it’s not is heavy. If you’re hoping for something in the vein of the band’s classic material, you will probably feel let down. If you’re cool with something a little more alt-rockish, like a hybrid of Foo Fighters and Torche, you’ll dig this. Either way, I’m reasonably certain you’ll get it stuck in your head after listening.
Check out “Bad News” below. The song will appear on Helmet’s new album, Dead to the World, which comes out October 28.
