HELLYEAH: '333' Single To Receive World Premiere Today

**Update**: A HELLYEAH representative has informed BLABBERMOUTH.NET that the band's new album does not yet have an official release date.

A new HELLYEAH song titled "333" will premiere today (Thursday, March 14) starting at 8 a.m. EST every hour, all day long, on SiriusXM Liquid Metal and SiriusXM Octane. The track is taken from the band's sixth album, which is due later in the year. The LP will mark the group's final effort with drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, who passed away in June 2018.

HELLYEAH filmed the "333" music video on March 1 at Duff's Brooklyn in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York.

Although it hasn't been confirmed, the title "333" may be a reference to the fact that number three was loved by Vinnie Paul's brother, late PANTERA guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott. More than a decade before he died, the drummer claimed that often looked up at the clock at precisely 3:33, day or night. He also said that the first demo of the title track of HELLYEAH's debut album, "Hellyeah", was exactly three minutes and 33 seconds long.

Vinnie Paul's private funeral last June 30 began at exactly 3:33 p.m. as a nod to Dimebag's favorite number.

Vinnie Paul died of dilated cardiomyopathy, an enlarged heart, as well as severe coronary artery disease. His death was the result of chronic weakening of the heart muscle — basically meaning his heart couldn't pump blood as well as a healthy heart.

Not long before his death, Vinnie laid down the drum tracks for HELLYEAH's sixth album.

Like the last two records, 2016's "Unden!able" and 2014's "Blood For Blood", the new disc was recorded at The Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada with producer Kevin Churko.

Dimebag, was shot to death in December 2004 while performing onstage. The Abbotts founded the bands PANTERA and DAMAGEPLAN together. After Dimebag's death, Abbott joined Gray and other members of MUDVAYNE and NOTHINGFACE in HELLYEAH, which has released five albums.

HELLYEAH will celebrate Vinnie Paul's life with a special performance on May 11 at the House Of Blues in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Tune in to the exclusive world premier of HELLYEAH’s new single #333 Thurs, March 14 starting at 8AM EST every hour, all day long, on SiriusXM Liquid Metal and SiriusXM Octane
