Helms Alee unveil “Untoxicated”
from new album
Stillicide out September 2nd
on Sargent House


Washington state power trio Helms Alee have unveiled another song off of their forthcoming Stillicide album which premiered on AV Club.  The song continues Helms Alee’s sonic tradition of blending heavy riffs, dark guitar pop and math rock into songs that are brutal, anthemic, and cerebrally engaging.  Stillicide will be available on CD, LP and digital formats from Sargent House on September 2nd, one month after Helms Aleeteams up with the Melvins for a U.S. tour through September 21st, followed by another North American jaunt supporting label mates Russian Circles.

Comprised of members Ben Verellen (guitar, vocals), Dana James (bass, vocals), and Hozoji Margullis (drums, vocals) Helms Alee delivers the kind of expertly crafted, dynamic, nuanced, and diverse songwriting that is both instantly intriguing and increasingly gratifying after repeated listens. Bolstered by the recording and production expertise of Kurt Ballou at God City Studios, Stillicide is not only the group’s strongest collection of songs, it is arguably their best sounding release to date. The heavier moments are that much more oppressive; their melodic angles are that much more beguiling, and the juxtaposition between Verellen’s patriarchal roar and the siren song vocals of James and Margullis is that much more exhilarating.  If there was only one band you could listen to for the rest of your life, Helms Alee would satiate most every emotional yearning. And if you could only pick one of their albums, you’d gravitate towards the best document of their textural range and songwriting chops. You’d gravitate towardsStillicide.

Stillicide is available for pre-order now (on iTunes as well).
