After a lengthy hiatus, Fredericton doom/sludge trio Helm have announced their first gigs of 2019.
Helm are back. This month the band announced they would be returning to live performances after several years on hiatus. Helm will be playing a hometown show at the Maniac Mansion on February 16 followed by a quick run of shows in Quebec.
The band released a pair of new tracks in November with a promise of more to come in the year ahead.
Helm was formed in 2011 by guitarist Mark Estabrooks, bassist Aaron Young and drummer Tommy Blizzard as a side project to their various other creative endeavors. The band released their self-titled album that same year and toured the Maritimes, Quebec and Ontario regularly until announcing a hiatus in 2015.
Hard Charger’s Shawn Smith was recently announced as the group’s new bass player.
