HELLYEAH To Release New Album “Welcome Home” In September, Announce U.S. Tour

HELLYEAH have announced that their new album “Welcome Home” will be released on September 27. The effort will feature Vinnie Paul’s final studio recordings and a video for the first single “333“ can be found HERE. A video for the title track will also premiere on Friday (May 17).

In other news, the band have also announced a U.S. tour. Stone Sour‘s Roy Mayorga will continue drumming for the group like he did at their recent Las Vegas show. Kyle Sanders said the following about the trek:

“While Vinnie Paul is obviously irreplaceable, one thing we can’t not do is tour. As easy as it would be to say we’re not going on the road, we have to. Vinnie would be extremely disappointed in us if we didn’t promote this record properly.

He’d be pissed off at all of us for putting all this work into finishing the record and then just letting it sit there on the shelf while we put a couple of songs to radio and whatever…and we know that.”

HELLYEAH Premiere “333” Music Video

HELLYEAH have premiered a new video for their new song “333.” This track is from the band’s new album, which is tentatively set to be released on June 28. The effort will be their last to feature the late Vinnie Paul Abbott.

Chad Gray commented:

“Vinnie originally came up with the idea for ‘333’. A lot of people may think Vinnie was just a drummer, but he was much more than just a badass, slamming, smashing drummer. He understood production and composition and he was very much a contributor to the writing process. This song was his baby; it belonged to and came from him.

Unfortunately, by the time I was ready to actually write the lyrics, it was after Vinnie had passed. The lyrics embrace and recognize the feelings that most metal fans have. Being treated like outcasts and being judged for the way we look or dress. It’s a reminder to all the metal fans that no matter what, you will always have a place in our worldwide metal community. With that said… Welcome to the family! We’re all the root of half evil reppin’ 333!

I love ‘333’ and what it represents — being half evil. It was a part of Dime and Vinnie before HELLYEAH was formed and very much became a part of HELLYEAH as we carried the torch for Dimebag. They were both so accepting of me and many others, and they taught us to treat people with respect, dignity and humility.”
