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.”

Vinnie Paul (Pantera, HELLYEAH) Was Left Out Of The Grammy Awards’ “In Memoriam” Segment

Sadly, the legendary Vinnie Paul Abbott was left out of the Grammy Awards‘ televised “in memoriam” segment last night (February 10). The drummer is just the latest metal icon to get excluded following Slayer‘s Jeff Hanneman, GWAR‘s Oderus Urungus, etc. However, Abbott was mentioned on Grammy.com, along with Oli Herbert (All That Remains), Kyle Pavone (We Came As Romans), Jill Janus (Huntress), etc., who were all snubbed on TV as well. Several members of the rock/metal community took to social media to voice their frustrations:

It was a whirlwind of a Grammy Week. It was so wonderful to be nominated, and I’m honored to have lost that Grammy to one of my influences, Chris Cornell. His children got up on stage and filled my heart with such love as they paid tribute to their father. But I am disappointed and disheartened that Vinnie Paul of Pantera/ Hell Yeah,All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert and Kyle Pavone of We Came As Romans were not acknowledged in the Annual Memoriam list this year. There's a committee at The Recording Academy and, in December, they put together a list that goes into the hundreds, 300 to 400 people. They go through that list and this committee votes. And from that, they cut it down to a reasonable number for television. I get it. But that is not an excuse for not including my friend Vinnie Paul of Pantera/ Hell Yeah, who has in fact…been nominated for 4 Grammy awards. I am very much aware that our genre is still not given the respect that it deserves. This is why I’m involved. That’s why I was there, in my leather jacket and horns raised, representing my genre Presenting Awards at the Pre Televised ceremony. That is why I was present at the televised show, sitting next to the cool kids. Like anything in this world, if you want change, you must take action. If I threw in the towel the first or hundredth time someone didn’t take me seriously or told me I couldn’t make it cuz I was a girl… then all the hard work and passion I bear for my love of music would be wasted. So, with the same passion, I will not waste my time in the light. I will continue to be an ambassador for Rock and to fight for the respect that it deserves. -Lzzy Hale #RaiseYourHorns #TheGrammys #RockNeverDies
