Helmet and Prong will hit the road this May for a co-headlining tour, a trek nearly 30 years in the making for the two Nineties rock acts that launched their careers at New York's CBGB's.
The tour begins May 3rd in Atlanta and crisscrosses the U.S. – including a May 23rd hometown show at New York's Highline Ballroom – before concluding May 26th at Baltimore's Maryland Deathfest.
"Finally! Helmet and Prong on tour together at last. The circle is now complete," Prong's Tommy Victor said in a statement. "From the years of crafting groundbreaking riffage and rhythmical carnage on New York's Lower East Side, to now, the entities still standing that drafted a generation of sonic assault are about to collide. And getting to share a stage with [Helmet's] Page Hamilton, one of the most influential masters in existence, is an honor for me personally. Absolutely perfect."
Helmet's Hamilton credits Victor – who served as a soundman at CBGBs in the late Eighties – with helping the Meantime band secure a residency at the famed rock venue. "We will be forever indebted to Prong and couldn’t be happier to have an NYC reunion tour coming up," Hamilton said in a statement. In 2017, Helmet's Meantime was named one of Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time.
