HELLYEAH will release its sixth studio album, "Welcome Home", on Friday, September 27 via Eleven Seven Music. The official music video for the disc's title track will be made available on Friday, May 17.
HELLYEAH played an emotional sold-out concert on Saturday, May 11 celebrating the life of its late drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott. he show, which began with an emotional procession by the Las Vegas Golden Knights DrumBots, and a live painting by renowned fine-artist Rob Prior, marked the first time the band has taken the stage since Vinnie's passing and the debut of STONE SOUR member Roy Mayorga as Vinnie's replacement. In a poignant moment during the set, Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist John Katsilometes presented the band with an official proclamation from the Clark County Board of Commissioners declaring May 11th, 2019 as "Vinnie Paul Day" for his incomparable role as a musician, and helping make the entertainment industry in the city of Las Vegas what it is today. A portion of the proceeds from the sold-out show, were donated to the American Heart Association in honor of Vinnie Paul.
"Welcome Home", the eagerly anticipated new album featuring the late Vinnie Paul's final recordings, will contain 10 tracks, driven by their love, loyalty, reverence and respect for their fallen brother, including the first fiery song "333", recently released.
As bassist Kyle Sanders so succinctly stated: "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's 18-city headlining summer outing will kick off on Tuesday, July 23 in Atlanta, and will culminate in a special celebration on Saturday, August 17 in Dallas, Texas.
