The Toadies rose to fame in the 90's when their debut album, Rubberneck, went platinum on the strength of their two smash singles "Possum Kingdom" and "Tyler." After breaking apart in the late 90's, they regrouped in 2006 for a couple of sold-out shows around St. Patrick's Day, and again the next year for the same thing. Following their album's release, they'll embark on this nationwide tour with Helmet and Ume.
Seeing Eye Dog, Helmet's seventh album, is one of the band's most uncompromising and ambitious releases, embodying the classic and utterly unique Helmet sound and pushing it into regions the band has never before explored. One big reason for that spirit of musical adventure is the record is essentially self-released (through the Work Song label). "I just felt completely free to do whatever I wanted to do," says frontman Page Hamilton. "It was really fun to make this record because I just felt this...freedom."
