Helix to release new ‘Greatest Hits’ album on July 10th as part of Universal’s ‘The Icon Series’
Canadian veteran hard rockers Helix are releasing a new greatest hits album titled Greatest Hits on July 10th which is part of Universal‘s The Icon Series.
The following message was posted on Helix frontman Brian Vollmer‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“So, if you haven’t pre-ordered the new Helix vinyl/CD on Universal, whatya waiting for? Ironically, for the 7 years we were with Capitol/E.M.I., they never ever put out a vinyl “best of” album. Now that Universal has bought the catalog they’re putting out a series of albums from bands on the roster called “The Icon Series“. The Helix Icon album has all the hits plus two new tracks: Even Jesus (Wasn’t Loved in his Home Town) and Gene Simmons Says (Rock is Dead). The album and CD will be out by July 10th. If you’d like to order an advance copy, the vinyl is $25 plus shipping, the CD is $15 plus shipping. You can order it here: http://helix.rockpapermerch.com/”
The group has released a number of compilation albums in the past consisting of Over 60 Minutes With… (1989), Deep Cuts: The Best of (1999), Never Trust Anyone Over 30 (2004), Rockin’ You For 30 Years (2004), Best Of 1983-2012 (2013) and Rock It Science (2016).
