Sweden's THE HELLACOPTERS, whose lineup includes former ENTOMBED drummer Nicke Andersson on guitar/vocals, will release the vinyl version of its new single, "The Same Lame Story", on August 10 via Bootleg Booze Records. The exclusive b-side is a cover of ELECTRIC FRANKENSTEIN's "It's All Moving Faster". The single will be limited to 1,000 copies and will be made available on transparent red vinyl with black splatter. 200 copies will come in a screenprinted cardboard box with an exclusive sticker only available to Bootleg Booze vinyl club members.
THE HELLACOPTERS are continuing work on their as-yet-untitled new full-length album, which they hope to complete before the end of the summer. It is once again being produced by Chips Kiesby (THE NOMADS, SATOR, THE TURPENTINES) while mixing duties will be handled by Henryk Lipp. A fall release is expected.
THE HELLACOPTERS' latest album, "Rock & Roll Is Dead", was released in the U.S. in February 2006 via Liquor and Poker Music. The American version of the CD contained two bonus tracks not included on any other version of the recording, as well as bonus video clips for the singles "Everything's on T.V." and "I'm in the Band".
THE HELLACOPTERS were nominated for a Swedish "Grammis" award last year in the "Best Rock Group of the Year" category.
