The East Vancouver based band BISON b.c., who have been called “heavy as fuck” by Thrasher Magazine, have just confirmed a two-week plus tour with legendary alternative metal band Helmet, who are known for fusing Zeppelinesque riffing with a vehement post-hardcore precision, augmented by dense chords and offbeat time signatures. BISON b.c. will join Helmet when the tour kicks off on Wednesday September 8th in Sacramento, CA at Harlow’s Night Club. The tour finishes up on Sunday September 26th at BriXton in Redondo Beach, CA.
Guitarist and vocalist James Farwell comments; “ I first started listening to Helmet when I was doing bonelesses and acid drops wasted in back alleys with big pants and small wheels; a long fucking time ago. Now my body is a jerk, but I still think of them when I drop tune – it is a fucking god damn honor to tour with Helmet.”
