Hellyeah

Hellyeah has announced the June 3 release of UNDEN!ABLE, its fifth full-length album, via Eleven Seven Music. The band gave fans the first taste of the new album six weeks ago with the lead single, “Human,” which is currently number 20 this week on the Mediabase Active Rock radio chart, the number 1 spin gainer and the number 2 most added Active Rock song. Watch the lyric video below.

UNDEN!ABLE marks the first time the current lineup of vocalist Chad Gray, guitarists Tom Maxwell and Christian Brady, drummer Vinnie Paul and bassist Kyle Sanders has recorded together as a unit. It was produced in Las Vegas at the Hideout Recording Studio by Kevin Churko. (more…)

Hellyeah almost sounds like a new band on its fourth album, Blood for Blood, released last summer. The good-time, party songs are gone. The Southern rock overtones are MIA, as well. Finally, the band sounds like what many hoped for from a melding of members of Pantera, Mudvayne and Nothingface. Following the exit of two band members, vocalist Chad Gray, guitarist Tom Maxwell and drummer Vinnie Paul wrote and recorded the album in Las Vegas with producer Kevin Churko. There, they also met Christian Brady, who joined the band on guitar after the completion of recording. (Bassist Kyle Sanders also joined around this time.) When Hellyeah’s recent headlining tour came to Rams Head Live in Baltimore, Maryland, Brady sat down with Live Metal’s Greg Maki to discuss what led to him joining the band, his musical background and more.

Guitarist Tom Maxwell talks ‘Band of Brothers,’ Volbeat tour and more

HellYeah’s newly released third album, Band of Brothers, is the kind of heavy, aggressive record many fans have been hoping for since the news of a band featuring members of Pantera, Damageplan, Mudvayne and Nothingface first broke. Guitarist Tom Maxwell feels that way, too. Prior to the last show of HellYeah’s tour supporting Volbeat, Live Metal’s Greg Maki sat down with Maxwell to discuss the new album, Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe’s incarceration in the Czech Republic and more.

Guitarist Greg Tribbett didn’t know what to expect when HellYeah (also featuring Mudvayne vocalist Chad Gray, Pantera/Damageplan drummer Vinnie Paul, Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell and Damageplan bassist Bob Zilla) got together and released its debut album in 2007. Coming from the calculated, precise methods of Mudvayne, the loose, free-flowing writing and recording style was foreign to him. Behind the single “Alcohaulin’ Ass,” the disc took off, and demand was high for record No. 2. After the release of a pair of new Mudvayne albums, HellYeah unleashed Stampede in July 2010 and a month later began headlining the second stage of the first Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. When the tour came to Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Va., Live Metal’s Greg Maki sat down with Tribbett on the band’s bus to talk about the festival, the new album and more. (more…)
