HELLYEAH's GREG TRIBBETT Forced To Leave Tour; Band To Play Remaining Dates As Four-Piece

HELLYEAH has announced that it will play the remaining dates of its current tour without guitarist Greg Tribbett, who has had to return home due to a family emergency. The band has been on a successful tour with CLUTCH since April 13.

Commented HELLYEAH singer Chad Gray: "We all stand with our brother Greg while he tends to personal matters. Our thoughts are with him and his family, and while the shows won't be the same without him, we will soldier on for our fans and close out this tour in the same kick ass fashion we always do.

"There's a lyric in our new song 'Band Of Brothers' that says, 'I've got your back and you've got mine,' and that couldn't be more true for us right now."

HELLYEAH will perform the following dates as a four-piece, with Tom Maxwell taking over for Tribbett, as well as carrying on with his own guitar duties:
