HELMET‘s video for the song “So Long” can be viewed below. The clip was directed by feature-film producer Eddie Granillo (“Interstate”, “The Craving”) and produced by Keptone Filmz. The footage was shot last April during the band’s Metalliance Tour with ST VITUS, CROWBAR, KYLESA, RED FANG, HOWL and ATLAS MOTH.
“So Long” comes off HELMET‘s latest full-length album, “Seeing Eye Dog”, which came out on September 7, 2010. The band’s first LP since 2006’s critically acclaimed “Monochrome” and its seventh album overall was made available on the indie Work Song label (with physical distribution by Redeye and direct-to-fan digital delivery by Topspin). The CD was produced by HELMET mainman Page Hamilton, with additional production by Toshi Kasai and vocal production by Mark Renk.
Hamilton is joined by drummer Kyle Stevenson, guitarist Dan Beeman and bassist Chris Traynor; HELMET‘s live bassist is Dave Case.
