New track

Could well be the best thing they've done so far.

They've played Missoula, MT twice now since I've been here. Still great. Although I've been extremely inebriated both times, and didn't get the best video.

Next time...

I've seen The Jesus Lizard twice and Helms Alee are honestly every bit as good.


Yeah, what he said. Although I saw the Jesus Lizard about 9 times I think?

We got to stand on a stage with giants on Friday... again.
That's pretty cool.

Incredible band, and incredible folks.
New song rules.


Great, great band.

I've only heard a few of their songs, but this one is really really good.

Saw that they were playing shows today and remembered that I chipped in on a kickstarter but never heard anything. Anyone else receive any updates?

They sent an email out a while ago.

Jan 2014? But wait, what about reward delivery in oct/nov? We're going to digitally send a few songs from the record to all of our kickstarter supporters in the fall, and supporters will still get a limited screen-printed version of the record once it's finally released in Jan 2014.


So I would expect there'll be something soon.

Seriously considering flying out for either the Chicago or Los Angeles shows. Saw them open for the Sword on New Years Eve with FM Tree. They tore the place down. We left after two Sword songs because it seemed kind of pointless to be there after Helms Alee.

OMG those kick drums!

I am going to lose my fucking mind when they roll into town with Ken Mode and Russian Circles.

Seriously. That's just too much amazing music for one night!

Project Update #1: Payback time, sucka's!
Posted by Helms Alee ♥ Like
Ok!! All of our rewards stuffs are trickling in and we'll be shipping them at the first of next month (about a week and a half before the official release of the record on Feb 11).

If you live in Seattle, we'll have all of the rewards present at our record release show Feb 1st at Neumos with Sandrider, Bali Girls, and Survival Knife. At the show your reward package will be hand delivered along with massive affection by Helms Alee (unless our affection is unwanted of course, in which case you can just take your shit and shove off, buddy!).

All of the other rewards will be shipped the next monday(ish).

Thanks again for all of it. Amazing to see this project evolve from a state of "maybe not happening" to the excitement we feel around it now. Hope you find these goodies worth the wait.

For real.. thanks.

No, seriously.... like....a lot.

We mean it.

No, you.

No, YOU!

love,

-HA

Pre-order is up for Sleepwalking Sailors. I ordered the Lime Green LP, also available in "Translucent Black Smoke." The new t-shirt designs are rad too.

I'd be down. You're down here and not in the Bay Area?

I hope the LA folks already bought tickets because the show sold out. I found out the hard way last week, but luckily Amoeba still had a good amount of tickets so I just bought mine there. But this is bullshit, High on Fire didn't even sell out the El Rey. I figured they were bigger than Russian Circles. This could just be due to Stubhub reseller nonsense though.

I really loved Night Terror. The last one I listened to once and really couldn't get into it.. but damn this new track (Tumescence) might be better than anything on Night Terror. Definitely going to pick up the new album.
