Simply put, Helms Alee are awesome. Throughout the course of their seven year existence, they have managed to embody a sound that is as melodic, heavy, and creative. Sleepwalking Sailors is the band’s third and arguably best effort, and their first release for B.G.M.’s favourite label Sargent House. Though still early in the year Sleepwalking Sailors, has set the bar very high for heady heavy music in 2014. I spoke with guitarist and vocalist Ben Verellen about the record, their new label, the road, and the upcoming Superbowl.
Sleepwalking Sailors is out February 11th via Sargent House.
