Over the past several years HELIX has been busier than ever.  They finished off their 2016 touring by playing ROCKLASSIKER LIVE in Stockholm, Sweden with The Darkness, Micky Dee & The All Stars, and The Hooters to a sold out show of 6,000 fans. They performed so well at this show in fact, that Sweden Rock Festival hired the band to return the next June to play for 10,000 fans. 

As well as criss-crossing Canada for the past several years playing summer festivals and casinos, the band has been relentless in releasing new material. Their last full length album “Bastard of the Blues” was released worldwide through Houston based Perris Records, which led  the band touring Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Finland, Sweden, and Norway to support that disc.  

Last year the band released a vinyl album for the first time since Back for Another Taste in 1990. On Side A was a song penned by the present line-up:  The Devil Is Having A Party Tonight, and on Side B The Tequila Song, penned by Brian Vollmer, Gord Prior, and Steve Georgakopoulos (the writer’s on Helix’s 2006 release THE POWER OF ROCK AND ROLL/SANCTUARY RECORDS) The album was released on red vinyl and was marketed as a commemorative release.

As well as Helix releasing new material, lead singer Brian Vollmer also released his second solo CD called “Get Yer Hands Dirty”.  The album was recorded at Noble Studios in Toronto and produced by Juno & Grammy winning Gavin Brown and co-produced by Sean Kelly.  Brown  also drummed on the disc and Kelly played guitar, along with blues singer Cheryl Lescom on back-up vocals, Helix bass player Daryl Gray, and keyboardist Matt Weidinger. Also singing on the first track “Get Yer Hands Dirty” is Canadian superstar Danko Jones.
