Counting down the days until Nov. 17th, that is when Helix returns with the release of “Vagabond Bones”. Brian Vollmer has been working with fellow Canadian Sean Kelly (Crash Kelly) on the material for this latest release, which will be put out by Universal/Fontana in Canada. The band currently has two tracks available on Youtube for your enjoyment. The title track “Vagabond Bones” and the unmastered track “Hung Over But Still Hanging In”, for “Hung Over” the mastered version that will appear on the album will be a duet between Vollmer and Russ Graham (Killer Dwarfs).
Vollmer’s track-by-track description of ”Vagabond Bones” can be found on the band’s official web site, planethelix.com.
The group’s classic ’80s lineup of Brent “The Doctor” Doerner on lead guitar, Greg “Fritz” Hinz on drums, Daryl Gray on bass, and Brian Vollmer on vocals are planning to hit the road throughout western Canada in November and a couple of additional dates in Ontario for December, to not only test drive a few of the new tunes, but to also warm up for festivals next summer.
