We’re thrilled to announce that Helmet will be playing 2 shows with British post-punk pioneers Wire next month in Portland and Seattle. On top of that, Page Hamilton will perform with Wire and the PinkFlag orchestra too!
Page Hamilton regards Wire as one of his musical heroes and a key influence on Helmet, and made a guest appearance on their 2008 album Object 47. In short, these shows are too good to miss: see you there!
