We feel like we have grown a lot as performers in the last year and are ecstatic to get back to do a headline tour along with some cracking festivals in between, to share some new songs and a new invigoration with everyone.

The band also recently released their first long-awaited new material with the single
“X (Mwah)” (released Feb 6th 2018) through UNFD Records.
‘X(Mwah)’ was the first new music from the quartet since the release of their critically-acclaimed theatrical masterpiece Opera Oblivia, “X” is a defeatist ode to recklessness delivered via an ever-colourful riot of punk rock joy. The jam was first revealed in front of a frenzied capacity crowd at UNIFY 18 in what Australian Guitar Magazine called “a glorious haze of liveliness and grandeur”.
HELLIONS are currently working on more new music, and updates will come very soon.
