Helix officially looking for a new bass player

After 5 and a half years of being in the band (since the very start) we are sad to see our bass player Brendon ‘Mucat’ Mchattie leave for a change of lifestyle in Melbourne Australia. A talented artist, songwriter and great musician Brendon has been been a strong contributor to the sound and image of Ignite, writing a great deal of the riffs and designing our artwork as well as consistently wearing a hat. We are honoured to have had him in the band and we wish him all best!

We are currently taking auditions for bass players and have gigs pre planned. It is not yet known who will end up taking over this role, or more importantly if they are going to wear a hat. It would seem that hats are optional as some of the other band members have started wearing hats to keep the memory alive.

Mini Tour Complete!

We have just finished a tiny two-show tour across two South Island cities, Timaru and Christchurch… tour is still a tour and it’s always a good time! Should have photo updates soon.


In the mean time check out some of these awesome bands we had the pleasure of playing with:
