Grease Helmet, featuring former Hanoi Rocks guitarist Andy McCoy, are gearing up for the release of their self-titled debut on September 5th in Japan and September 19th in Finland. A music video for the lead-off single "Keep Your Helmet Greasy" was recently released to help promote the upcoming album.
Grease Helmet was founded by Jere Garcia (vocals) and Niclas Etelavuori (bass) in October of 2009 in Helsinki Finland. 5K Studios was adopted as Helmet Headquarters and would provide the haven where the strategy of standard hard rock'n roll was to be conducted. Soon word spread out and Jan Rechberger (drums), Ben Varon (rhythm guitar) and guitar legend Andy McCoy (lead guitar) where recruited to the Grease Helmet army.
Within two years Grease Helmet created their unique sound and dynamic songwriting skills which will be displayed in the highly anticipated self titled debut album 'Grease Helmet'. The Japanese edition of the album will contain two exclusive bonus songs, "Speed King" (Deep Purple) and "The Rocker" (Thin Lizzy).
