HELMET & PRONG Announce U.S. Co-Headlining Tour

(By Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker, Lead Journalist/Writer, RiffRelevant.com)

Two of New York’s most enduring, revered bands are uniting on a 19-date U.S. tour spanning the Southeast, Midwest, and the East Coast…. HELMET and PRONG!

Each band is legendary in their own right too, with HELMET rising from out of the hardcore / punk scene, eventually crossing over into the alternative rock realm. PRONG also had roots in that world, their evolving sound harnessing industrial and thrash metal elements to become a modern day heavyweight.

Says Prong‘s Tommy Victor: “Finally! Helmet and Prong on tour together at last.”

Helmet‘s Page Hamilton caps it, “We will be forever indebted to Prong and couldn’t be happier to have an NYC reunion tour coming up.”

Fan pre-sale starts this Thursday, February 15th at 10 AM local venue time, and all pre-sale ticket buyers get a poster signed by both bands. Tickets open to the public Friday, February 16th. Head here for tickets.
