Hellyeah Announce Final Album with Late Drummer Vinnie Paul
'Welcome Home' will arrive this fall
Published May 13, 2019Hellyeah have announced they will be returning with the band's new album Welcome Home, marking their final LP made with late drummer Vinnie Paul.
The new album will arrive on September 27 via Eleven Seven Music.
As a press release explains, Welcome Home will feature 10 songs "driven by their love, loyalty, reverence and respect for their fallen brother."
A video for the record's title track will arrive this Friday (May 17), while Hellyeah already shared a clip for the album track "333," which you can find below.
To go along with the new album, Hellyeah have mapped out an 18-city headlining tour, which will stick to the U.S. this summer.
"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," Hellyeah bassist Kyle Sanders said in a statement. "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."
You can find all the band's tour dates below, while you can pre-order Welcome Home over here.
Paul — who also famously played in Pantera — passed away last year due to suffering from various heart complications. He was 54.
