Helix Say “Even Jesus (Wasn’t Loved In His Hometwon)” In New Video

September 21, 2014

Helix have released video for “Even Jesus (Wasn’t Loved In His Hometown)”, the first single from the Canadian band’s latest album ‘Bastard Of The Blues’.

“The video was put together by former Helix guitarist Brent Doerner,” says frontman Brian Vollmer. “Kaleb (Duck, guitars) also sat in on the project to give his opinion and help out. Some of the footage of the band offstage and the crowd scenes I shot myself on my Sony High Def camera. Brent also shot some footage (The Mohegan Sun clips) and other live footage was done here in London by Mike Glen’s video company. Almost all of the footage we did at Mike’s was shot during two run throughs at sound check. Anyway, Brent did a simply amazing job. Hope you like it as much as I do.”

‘Bastard Of The Blues’ was released on May 27th through Perris Records and represents the group’s thirteenth studio album. “By no means perfect, Bastard Of The Blues does prove there is lots of gas left in the Helix tank,” said Sleaze Roxx in a recent review. “The album has far more in common with Vagabond Bones than it does with the band’s most memorable releases or the best forgotten early 2000’s era. The thing about Helix is that no matter what you think of their studio releases — and after 35 years you should know by now if you enjoy the band or not — they always deliver live, and I’m sure Vollmer and company will turn some of these tracks into hard hitting staples when they step onto a stage in a rundown bar.”

Helix are gearing up for a European tour, the band’s first since opening for Ian Gillan in 1990. Joining Helix on the majority of dates will be Norway’s Humbucker.
