Ex-members of Harkonen and These Arms Are Snakes compose the rock trio Helms Alee. Since its 2008 Hydra Head album Night Terror, front man Ben Verellen has reunited Harkonen while launching his own Verellen Amplifiers.
Helms Alee will take its seamless male-female vocal blends and thrashing rock melodies to the stage with the impressive likes of Boris, Red Sparowes, and Young Widows for a fall tour.
The band will wrap up the tour with a live performance that it’s calling Verellen Amplifiers Night in its hometown of Seattle. Helms Alee will then be back in the studio preparing a currently untitled and new album for Hydra Head, expected in 2011 and produced by Matt Bayles.
