Helmet Releases New Song ‘Gun Fluf’ From Upcoming ‘Left’ Album

September 21, 2023

You haven’t heard a new Helmet album in almost six years. That’s about to change, as they ready the release of their new studio album, “Left”, on November 10. The band has already released the album’s second single, “Gun Fluf”!

Helmet’s last album, 2016’s “Dead To The World”, was received to critical acclaim.

The band’s new album, “Left”, sees the Helmet – comprised of frontman Page Hamilton, drummer Kyle Stevenson, guitarist Dan Beeman and bassist Dave Case – flex their musical muscles once again.

Hamilton and Jim Kaufman and Mark Renk produced the 11-song album, and it was mastered by Howie Weinberg. And yes, you should expect more drop-D tuning.

“Left” track listing:

01. Holiday
02. Gun Fluf
03. NYC Tough Guy
04. Make-Up
05. Big Shot
06. Bombastic
07. Reprise
08. Dislocated
09. Tell Me Again
10. Powder Puff
11. Resolution

Helmet disbanded in 1997 and reunited in 2004.

They’re currently on a U.S. tour called the “Look Left Tour”, with Soul Blind as support. The have European dates planned in November and December.

IMO Helmet is a dreadfully underrated band. Crushing riffs. Driving grooves. Great vocals. What’s not to love?
