HELLYEAH RELEASE NEW VIDEO FOR “PERFECT“ OFF FORTHCOMING ALBUM, “WELCOME HOME”

Hard rock purveyors Hellyeah announce the release of Perfect, the fourth track from their forthcoming sixth studio album, Welcome Home, due  September 27th, via Eleven Seven Music. Watch it below.

Hellyeah eagerly anticipated new album, Welcome Home, which features the late Vinnie Paul’s final recordings, will unleash 11 tracks, driven by their love, loyalty, reverence and respect for their fallen brother, including the above mentioned guitar-driven Perfect, fiery track 333, single Welcome Home, which is the band’s fastest-growing song at Active Rock Radio, currently in the Top 15, and gritty Oh My God. Pre-order the album here.

The band have six dates left on their current 18-city A Celebration Of Life headlining summer outing, culminating in a special hometown celebration on August 17th, in Dallas, Texas. 

By teaming up with the American Heart Association, Hellyeah will raise early awareness for heart disease, which claimed famed drummer Vinnie Paul at 54. The hard rockers of Hellyeah are turning to healthier ways as they mourn their friend. “Vinnie’s passing was a wake-up call for us all,” said guitarist Tom Maxwell. Heart disease is the number one cause of death globally. As an issue that affects their fans and families every day, Hellyeah are hoping to help save lives, and are changing their own in the process. 

The band will continue to honor their late bandmate by donating a portion of ticket sales from their upcoming tour in his memory, in hopes of raising over $10,000 for AHA.  Tickets and full routing are available here.  

In addition to this initiative, Hellyeah will host a text to donate campaign during each of their upcoming tour dates: fans can text Vinnie #41411, or head to a special CrowdRise page where they can also donate to help fight heart disease, as well as read more about the American Heart Association and its interview with Hellyeah, here.

Hellyeah was formed in 2006 by Pantera founder/drummer Vinnie Paul, singer Chad Gray (Mudvayne), and guitarist Tom Maxwell (Nothingface), with bassist Kyle Sanders (Bloodsimple) and guitarist Christian Brady, who joined in 2014. Their 2016 release, Unden!able, reached number two on the Hard Rock albums chart.
