HELLYEAH is the brain-child of Mudvayne front man, Chad Gray, and Nothingface founder, Tom Maxwell. It became a reality in 2006 when the pair convinced the late Vinnie Paul, legendary drummer of Pantera and Damageplan, to pick up his sticks again after the tragic loss of his brother. Hard rock and metal fans all over the globe celebrated Vinnie’s return and HELLYEAH was immediately dubbed a heavy metal super-group by press and public alike.
The band’s self-titled, debut hit the streets in 2007, entering Billboard’s Top 200 album chart at No. 9. 2010’s Stampede hit No. 8 on the same prestigious chart, and 2012’s Band of Brothers proved that HELLYEAH was in it for the long haul. For the band’s ever-growing legion of fans, 2014’s, Blood for Blood, was the bar-setting release they’d been anticipating since day one. This critically acclaimed album deservedly debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hard Rock Album chart. It also saw the group’s membership stabilize in rock-solid fashion with the introduction of Christian Brady on lead guitar and Kyle Sanders on bass.
As a result of the burgeoning success of Blood for Blood, HELLYEAH toured the globe for 18 months. Then, after a mere two-week break, the boys started working on their fifth album. The resulting release, 2016’s metal-masterpiece, UNDEN!ABLE, continued the brutal bombast of its predecessor. In late 2017, after another successful bout of touring, HELLYEAH started work on album six with their producer from Blood for Blood, Kevin Churko. All was going well until Friday, June 22, 2018, when the news of Vinnie Paul’s sudden passing stunned the hard rock world into silence.
Despite their unimaginable feelings of both loss and pain, the four remaining HELLYEAH members regrouped to do what they knew Vinnie would want them to do: Finish what he’d started. Driven by their love, loyalty, reverence and respect for their fallen brother, they did exactly that. The result is Welcome Home – an album that does both Vinnie’s memory and groundbreaking legacy proud.
