Helmet + Toadies Announce Dates for 2012 Summer Tour

Facebook: Helmet

It’s not 1994, but Helmet and the Toadies will reclaim their place in the spotlight this summer, teaming up on the road to relive past glories and show off the vitality of their most recent works.

Frontman Page Hamilton has seen the Helmet lineup change over the years, but the group is still rocking as hard as ever. Their last album, ‘Seeing Eye Dog,’ was released in 2010. As for Toadies, they’ve been quite busy since reuniting for the 2008 release ‘No Deliverance.’ Their latest disc, ‘Play. Rock. Music,’ was expected to arrive as an EP by now, but the band’s creative flow was so much that they decided to continue in the studio to complete a full-length disc. ‘Play. Rock. Music’ is now tentatively scheduled for a late July release.

The veteran acts will be supported on the road by buzzworthy upstarts UME, who will take part in all shows with exception of the tour opener in Houston and closer in Denver. The trio’s full-length album, ‘Phantoms,’ was released last August. Tickets go on sale May 18 in most markets, with the Ft. Lauderdale and Denver shows going up a day later.
