HELMET Mainman Seeks New Members

HELMET mainman Page Hamilton is currently producing an album for a band from North Carolina called CLASSIC CASE. "After I finish, I'm playing some more guitar on the movie 'Across the Universe' and getting ready to do some HELMET shows in a month or so," Hamilton says in a posting on the band's web site. "The first round of shows start October 17th somewhere near New York. The Warcon folks and people involved with the movie 'Saw III' are putting the tour together and planning another HELMET video for the song 'Monochrome'."

In other HELMET-related news, guitarist Chris Traynor has announced that he has left the band after nearly a decade of working with Hamilton. A few days later, drummer Mike Jost also exited the group in order to attend to his duties as a new father. It is not presently clear if bassist Jeremy Chatelain will continue playing with HELMET. Hamilton is reportedly already auditioning new members.

HELMET is tentatively scheduled to tour Europe in November and Australia in December.
