Helmet are pleased to announce a European Betty 20th Anniversary tour in September/October 2014. The band will be playing their critically lauded 1994 Betty album in full, along with a set spanning the entirety of Helmet’s catalog.

Billed as the “thinking man’s metal band,” Helmet provided an alternative to the grunge bands coming out of the US at the time with their clean cut aesthetic and raw, unrelenting, propulsive sound. Betty came on the trails of the band’s first mainstream success, 1992’s Meantime.

The cut “Milquetoast” became a music video staple on MTV and the album was critically praised for its genre-defying exploration into jazz, blues and improvisation.
