HELLYEAH — the new band featuring members of MUDVAYNE, PANTERA and NOTHINGFACE — is one of the featured bands on EA's Madden NFL 08, going on sale nationwide August 14, 2007. "You Wouldn't Know", the single (and accompanying video) from HELLYEAH's self-titled CD, is included in the game.
An interview taken on the band's tour bus with drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott (representing the Dallas Cowboys) and guitarist Greg Tribbett (representing the Chicago Bears), will be featured in the all-Madden episode of Spike TV's "Game Head" this Monday, August 13 at 11:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. PT. The boys received an advance copy of the game, and with the help of the Spike TV production team, have come up with their own Madden teaser available here. (Please note the link will expire in five days and will be available for 100 downloads.) In addition, Vinnie will soon be appearing as a featured artist on EA.com's EA Trax section.
HELLYEAH will stay on the road through September on the Family Values tour. An announcement for the band's fall tour plans will be coming shortly, as the boys will stay saddled up and road-rockin' through at least the end of 2007 (it was previously announced that HELLYEAH would stop touring this fall as MUDVAYNE prepares to release its new album).
