Hellyeah guitarist Tom Maxwell will have hand surgery next month. In an interview on Blabbermouth.net, Maxwell said: "I got in a car accident and broke my middle finger in my left hand. I keep getting trigger finger, which — it gets stuck. It's really odd. An odd feeling."

He went on to say: "I've got a series of cortisone shots, which the percentage of the cure rate from that is about 70 percent. Unfortunately, I didn't fall into that."

According to his doctor, it will be a small incision. He didn't mention how long recovery would take. Welcome Home is due on September 27 and will be the group's final effort recorded with drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, who died more than a year ago.
