Hellions aligned with some hardcore band from Australia, including Parkway Drive, The Amity Affliction, Northlane, and Hans Like Houses.
Furthermore, the cultivation of the second album “Indian Summer” produced by Shane “Buddha” Edwards. Hellions recording at Karma Sound Studios, Thailand. The album was released in 2015.
The album is quite challenging, adventurious. Not satisfied with a lot of heavy music today this time, Dre, Anthony, and Matthew chose to pull the sound that inspired them in the first place, namely the flow channel and the power of Rage Against The Machine, combined with style in the style of My Chemical Romance. Interestingly, Indian Summer maintains his composure and is described as controlled chaos. Catchy, aggressive and visually engaging.
“Indian Summer represents everything we stand for as individuals. There are parts on the record that are incredibly personal and parts that are relatable to not only the members of the band, but our fans, friends, families and well, anyone really,” kata drummer Anthony Caruso “This is the first time we have ever felt truly content with where we at musically, which is exciting and invigorating for everyone. It’s honest, confronting and true to ourselves. Hellions isn’t just a band, it’s a way of life and Indian Summer is our way of showing people who we are. It’s for everyone.”
