Updates from Hellyeah’s New Album

Hellyeah fans got a sweet little peek into the band’s new album from a 15 second clip posted by the band with the hashtag “HUMAN,” (#HUMAN), which is said to be the first single off the new album. Not much can be concluded, just a quick snippet of what sounds like some strings & guitar tuning to open and ending, seemingly, right before frontman Chad Gray let’s loose on some lyrics. See for yourself:

Of the new album, guitarist Tom Maxwell says, “It’s all coming along great. There’s a lot of new stuff coming out that we’ve never tried before and a lot of heavy s–t.” He added, “It’s gonna be moody, it’s gonna be dark, it’s gonna be crushing, it’s gonna be heartbreaking, it’s gonna be everything. So it’s gonna be a proper take-off from our last record, but with a lot of new surprises, I think. And just kind of moving forward with the path that we’ve taken with Blood for Blood. So it’s coming along great… It’s gonna be a really, really savage album, and I’m really excited. I can’t wait for you all to hear it.”

Last time we heard from Maxwell back in November, he stated that the band was about “eight songs” into their new effort. Screenshot 2016-01-25 at 6.08.39 PM

The band has been working hard recording at “The Hideout” studio in Las Vegas. Kevin Churko is producing the album. Hellyeah is starting to book tour dates to lead up to the release of their next album. Dates can be seen here.
