The Helio Sequence is an indie electronic/shoegaze band signed to indie label Sub Pop. The band was formed in 1999 in Beaverton, Oregon and consists of Brandon Summers on guitar and vocals and Benjamin Weikel, who has also played for Modest Mouse, on keyboards and drums. To date, they have released two albums on Sub Pop, two on Portland-based label Cavity Search and a self-released EP. Their fourth album 'Keep Your Eyes Ahead' was released on January 29, 2008. The Helio Sequence toured with the British band Keane through the U.S.A. in 2009, and in June 2010, they were Keane's support act in several gigs through Great Britain during the British band's Night Train Tour. On June 11, 2012, Sub Pop officially announced that The Helio Sequence's fifth full-length album, entitled Negotiations, will be released on September 11, 2012. According to the band's Facebook page, the new record will have a sound that is "warmer, more organic and more spacey/ethereal." The Helio Sequence (Official) Facebook page also states that tour dates will be announced in July 2012. Read more on Last.fm.
