Hellyeah recently played a show celebrating the life of Vinnie Paul just this weekend and have also announced that their 6th studio album will featuring his final recordings. The album is set to be released Friday September 27th, via Eleven Seven Music.
The new video for the title track will be available Friday May 17th, and can be preordered here with an immediate download of the track. The album will be titled ‘Welcome Home’, featuring 10 tracks.
Bassist Kyle Sanders so succinctly stated: “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".
In a poignant moment during the set, Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist John Kats (Katsilometes) presented the band with an official proclamation from the Clark County Board of Commissioners declaring May 11th 2019 as “Vinnie Paul Day”, for his incomparable role as a musician and helping make the Entertainment Industry in the City of Las Vegas what it is today.
A portion of the proceeds from the sold-out show, were donated to The American Heart Association in honour of Vinnie Paul.
