What The Heck Is A Heligoat

The Heligoats quietly entered its 10th year of existence in 2009. Chris Otepka (formerly of Troubled Hubble) always used the moniker as a separate songwriting outlet, even while touring and recording with other full-time, well-acclaimed bands.

Releasing at least one record per year since the first The Heligoats release in 1999, Chris has worked on the band constantly for ten years. Otepka's adventures, wrapped in delirious art craft and song wit, allow his freaked-out but devoted supporters to wade into his odyssey as deeply as they choose to challenge themselves.

The Heligoats are now more than just Chris Otepka. They include Mike Mergenthaler, David James and Steven Mitchell. They will be bringing the spirit of their new album Goodness Gracious with them on the road this new year, playing the songs from the record, as well as new songs from an upcoming record and a number of selections from the past ten years of The Heligoats’ existence.

Some of the other Hubble guys have a band now called Kid, You'll Move Mountains - just fyi.
