The year was 1991 and Interscope had just won a ferocious multi-label bidding war (Which according to some accounts put an estimated 20 labels against each-other!) to sign the alternative metal band HELMET.
Nirvana had just made their commercial breakthrough and the music industry was looking for the next big thing in every backstreet venue, high school hall and garage in America. Unfortunately for them, Helmet threw the rule book out of the window and oversaw producing themselves with the help of legendary producers Andy Wallace (Who indeed had just finished working on Nevermind for Nirvana) and Steve Albini of Big Black, Rapeman and now Shellac who worked on the bands breakthrough single and biggest hit to date “In the Meantime.”
The stop-go-stop-go minimalist sound of “Meantime” changed the face of alternative music in the early 90's and continues to do so up until this day being called “Arguably the most influential and overlooked rock records of the 90s.” On this very special tour the band will perform the album start to finish in it's entirety as part of their set for the first time ever in the UK.
