THE HELLACOPTERS: Entire New Album Available For Streaming; Video Posted Online

Sweden's THE HELLACOPTERS — the band fronted by former ENTOMBED drummer Nicke Andersson (on guitar/vocals) — is currently streaming its entire new album, "Head Off", on the group's MySpace page. The CD, which was once again produced by Chips Kiesby (THE NOMADS, SATOR, THE TURPENTINES) and mixed by Henryk Lipp, will be issued in Europe on April 18 via Wild Kingdom/Sound Pollution. European festival appearances will follow during the summer, and a final headlining run will take place in the fall.

A video for the song "In the Sign of the Octopus" — which is featured on "Head Off" — can be viewed below.

THE HELLACOPTERS was the featured musical guest on the "Nyhetsmorgon" program on Sweden's TV4's on March 20. Watch the band's performance at TV4.se:

THE HELLACOPTERS' last album, "Rock & Roll Is Dead", was released in the U.S. in February 2006 via Liquor and Poker Music. The American version of the CD contained two bonus tracks not included on any other version of the recording, as well as bonus video clips for the singles "Everything's on T.V." (available for viewing below) and "I'm in the Band".
