Helmet Announce US ‘Betty’ 20th Anniversary Tour Dates

Helmet’s third studio album, Betty, was released on on June 21st in 1994 via Interscope Records.

    First of all, what’s up with that one guy’s face? And second, I think it’s insane that they toured for a YEAR straight behind an album nobody gives a damn about.

    Which is a real shame, because Betty is probably the most experimental and interesting album they’ve ever done

    Saw Helmet do the entire Betty album last month at a small bar in Portland Oregon. Definitely worth seeing if you’re a fan. I hope they add more dates, I’d like to see them again.

    I love this band. Strap it On deserves (and desperately needs) a thorough remastering. Meantime could use one too.
