Hellyeah celebrates Vinnie Paul’s life, announces new album & tour dates

Posted by on May 13, 2019

On Saturday (11th), Hellyeah celebrated Vinnie Paul’s life for a special performance at the House of Blues in Las Vegas, NV. The show also marked the band’s first performance since Vinnie Paul’s passing as well as Stone Sour drummer Roy Mayorga’s live debut with the group. During the show, the band went into their new single “333,” and also performed a few Pantera tracks with “I’m Broken,” and “Walk.” Additionally, Clark County, NV declared May 11th as the official Vinnie Paul Day.

Hellyeah have announced their new album Welcome Home will be released on September 27th via Eleven Seven Music. The group will premiere a music video for the title track this Friday (17th). However, pre-orders are currently available at this location. The follow-up to 2016’s Undeniable will feature final recordings from the late Vinnie Paul that will consist of 10 tracks.

Bassist Kyle Sanders expressed:

“While Vinnie Paul is obviously irreplaceable, one thing we can’t not do is tour. As easy as it would be to say we’re not going on the road, we have to. Vinnie would be extremely disappointed in us if we didn’t promote this record properly. He’d be pissed off at all of us for putting all this work into finishing the record and then just letting it sit there on the shelf while we put a couple of songs to radio and whatever…and we know that.”
