HELMET: Video Interview Available
Tulsa's Z-104.5 The Edge conducted an interview with HELMET guitarist/vocalist Page Hamilton in July 2008. Watch the chat below.
HELMET earlier in the year announced the addition of guitarist Dan Beeman to the group's ranks. Beeman replaces the band's most recent axeman, Jimmy Thompson, who reportedly decided to move back to his native Australia at the end of 2007.
During a recent interview with Ultimate-Guitar.com, Page was also asked if it was still his intention to do "two more HELMET records and then move on, as he had stated in a previous interview, "Yes, I think so," he replied. "I hope I can do two more albums and that there is also interest on the touring front. But as long as we can go play shows and people come out to them and I feel good about what we're doing, then we'll do it. Realistically, I'm thinking of two more albums after 'Monochrome' as in two years I'll be fifty years old. So I'm thinking will I be capable? It is very physically demanding and people kind of under estimate the energy you have to put out to play this music. And I don't to go out and do a half-assed job. So as long as I can maintain that high level and still feel great, I'll think about doing it."
HELMET 2008 is:
Page Hamilton (Vocals & Guitar)
Dan Beeman (Guitar)
Jon Fuller (Bass)
Kyle Stevenson (Drums)
