Helmet
Helmet was formed in New York City in 1989 by founding members Page Hamilton, Henry Bogdan, Peter Mengede and John Stanier. The group signed to Amphetamine Reptile Records and released their first full-length album, Strap It On, in 1991. A year later, they signed to Interscope Records.

The band found mainstream success with their Interscope debut, Meantime, which debuted at number 68 on the Billboard 200 and spawned the hits "Unsung" and "In the Meantime." In 1994, Helmet explored new sonic territories with the fan favorite and critically acclaimed Betty, which incorporated elements of jazz and blues into their "thinking man's metal." Following an additional album, Helmet broke up in 1998, while Hamilton explored other projects, including various collaborations and film scores.

In 2004, Hamilton reformed Helmet with a new lineup, releasing the album Size Matters that same year. In 2006, they released Monochrome on Warcone records and then released their most recent album, Seeing Eye Dog, via Work Song in 2010.

Since the 2004 revival, Helmet has toured extensively all over the world. In 2012, they toured Europe in light of the 20th anniversary of Meantime and, most recently, embarked on a similar tour for the 20th anniversary of Betty.

Original Local H drummer, Joe Daniels, will join the current two-man line-up (frontman Scott Lucas and drummer Ryan Harding) for a spring tour to mark the 20th anniversary of the band’s breakthrough album, As Good As Dead. The band will first play a short set of songs culled from last year’s widely praised album, Hey, Killer, along with music from their other six studio albums and EPs. After a brief intermission, they will return to the stage and play As Good As Dead in its entirety. There will be no opening act.

As Good As Dead, Local H’s second full-length album, was produced by Steven Haigler (Quicksand, Pixies) and was originally released on April 16, 1996 on Island Records. The record was the band’s first foray into making a concept album and is centered around life in a dead-end, small town. As Good As Dead spawned four modern rock radio hits including “Eddie Vedder,” “Fritz’s Corner,” “High-Fivin’ MF” and “that copacetic song” -- “Bound for the Floor,” a track that remains a staple on alternative radio station playlists around the the country two decades later.
