Genre is merely a concept to Hellions, who continue to change the game with every new release. The heavy music trailblazers have just announced their fourth record, ‘Rue’, dropping October 19th.

The singles so far have been peppered with the signature Hellions sound, but definitely signal a new direction for the band. Funky ear-worm X (Mwah),  solemn Furrow, and latest release Smile are sonically diverse, which comes as no surprise from the quintet. Rue was recorded in Thailand with longtime collaborator Shane Edwards, and is likely set to follow in the footsteps of it’s predecessors.

Their 2016 release ‘Opera Oblivia‘ debuted at #4 on the ARIA charts, and this latest record is sure to be no different. Bands like Hellions continue to push heavy music back into the mainstream, garnering national radio play with Triple J and being billed on festivals like Yours & Owls.
