HELLYEAH: Six Songs Demoed For Third Album

The metal juggernaut known as HELLYEAH featuring Vinnie Paul Abbott (PANTERA, DAMAGEPLAN), Chad Gray and Greg Tribbett (MUDVAYNE), Tom Maxwell (NOTHINGFACE) and Bob "Zilla" Kakaha (DAMAGEPLAN) has finished demoing six new songs for its forthcoming third album. The band states via Twitter, "Things are rolling quick. This shit is heavy and badass!"

In an April 2011 interview with the Artisan News Service, Vinnie Paul stated about HELLYEAH's plans for the next studio CD, "We've got some great ideas. We've decided that we wanna heavy it up a little bit on this next record push it a little further. It's always gonna have the HELLYEAH vibe a little bit of the Southern vibe, a little bit of the rock and roll vibe, a lot of the metal vibe you put all together and it turns out to be HELLYEAH."

When asked why he thought HELLYEAH resonated with so many fans, Vinnie said, "I think it's just a real honest band it's real straight-forward. We're not afraid to show out good-time side. A lot of bands really take their music a little too seriously it's a lot of death, gloom and all that kind of stuff. And the world ain't so bad. We like to have a good time with our music, so that's what HELLYEAH is all about."

HELLYEAH's sophomore album, "Stampede", sold 28,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 8 on The Billboard 200 chart.

HELLYEAH's self-titled debut CD opened with 45,000 units back in April 2007 to land at No. 9.
