30 tracks to celebrate 30 years.

Alt-metal outfit Helmet are celebrating three decades of non-stop hits with a string of Aussie tour dates in May next year.

The band released their eighth studio album, Dead to the World, back in 2016. Throughout their extensive catalogue, Helmet have shifted the boundaries of modern guitar music and drawn on complex jazz and metal elements to create something truly unique.

During their tour Down Under, the four-piece will be playing 30 songs at each gig to mark the 30 years that have cemented them as one of the most influential metal groups.

Check out Helmet’s tour dates below:

Wednesday May 13 — Uni Bar, Hobart TAS

Thursday May 14 — The Gov, Adelaide SA

Friday May 15 — Metro Theatre, Sydney NSW

Saturday May 16 — The Croxton, Melbourne VIC

Sunday May 17 — The Zoo, Brisbane QLD

Tickets for Helmet’s Aussie tour go on sale Friday November 22 via DRW Entertainment.
