A commercial for “Skin In The Game”, the new EP from veteran Canadian hard rockers HELIX, can be viewed below.
The track listing for the effort is as follows:
01. The William Tell Overture
02. Skin In The Game
03. The Bitch Is A Bullet
05. Champagne Communist
The CD was mixed by Aaron Murray and was mastered at Carvello Mastering in Toronto, Ontario. The artwork is once again being created by Babyjack Design, who previously worked with the band on the “Vagabond Bones” and “Smash Hits Unplugged” releases.
Regarding the new material, HELIX frontman Brian Vollmer said, “I wrote [the first] four songs with Sean Kelly. One (‘Angelina’) was also a co-write with Moe Berg. Sean has been my partner on the last couple of HELIX discs — ‘Vagabond Bones’ and ‘Smash Hits Unplugged’ — as well as being a large part of the acoustic show.
“These four songs (‘Champagne Communist’, ‘Angelina’, ‘Skin In The Game’, and ‘The Bitch Is A Bullet’) are really just a continuation of the ‘Vagabond Bones’ CD. We wrote them very shortly after that CD was finished and they’ve been sitting in the can for a year.”
