This Helena drum cover was super fun to film! I’ve been a My Chemical Romance fan for a long time, and Helena has always been on my list of songs to periodically revisit behind the kit. The parts are distinct and high energy, and it’s a great one for practicing endurance and control.

Shot at my studio in North Hollywood, and mixed by me.
