HELMS ALEE
FUSE MELODY WITH MELANCHOLY IN
NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR
“SPIDER JAR” 
UPCOMING ALBUM NOCTILUCA, OUT APRIL 26
VIA SARGENT HOUSE

After more than a decade of existence, five studio albums, and a slew of EPs, Helms Aleehas managed to conquer new musical frontiers with each release — their forthcoming fifth LP being no different. Named for a bioluminescent marine algae that glows when excited, the Puget Sound trio’s forthcoming album Noctiluca bears a radiancy all its own. In anticipation of the album’s April 26 release, Helms Alee have unveiled another sliver ofNoctiluca’s expansive scope; the catchy, propulsive and lush single “Spider Jar.”  With a brand new music video, filmed by Steven Lindquist and edited by Christaan Morris, footage for “Spider Jar” captures Helms Alee live and behind the scenes in their natural habitat.

Having built a sonic tenure around oceanic themes, Helms Alee continue their tradition of imbuing jagged, uncompromising rock melodies with transcendental imagery on Noctiluca. A light blazing through a thicket of dark, Helms Alee’s music leaps from the sublime to the savage without warning or apology. With the aid of producer/engineer Sam Bell (Minus the Bear, R.E.M., The Cars), Noctiluca pushes the band’s methods (and volume) to new extremes. Noctiluca will be released via Sargent House on April 26 and is available for pre-order here.

Helms Alee will spend the summer touring the US alongside legendary duo Earth.
