Hellyeah Posts Clip Of New Music As Singer Returns To Stage

Hellyeah has released what appears to be a snippet of a brand new song from the band's upcoming album. The LP will mark the group's final effort with drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, who passed away in June 2018 at the age of 54 from heart disease. Abbott reportedly completed his drum tracks for the new LP before his death.

A release date has yet to be determined for the new Hellyeah album, which will follow up 2016's Unden!able and its hit cover version of Phil Collins' "I Don't Care Anymore."

In addition, Hellyeah singer Chad Gray returned to the stage for the first time since Abbott's death when he showed up on last week's annual ShipRocked cruise aboard the Carnival Valor.

Gray turned up twice during the cruise, joining Nonpoint during a performance of "Bullet With a Name," and also jamming alongside Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch and the ShipRocked Stowaways all-star band on a rendition of Korn's "Blind."

Fan footage of Gray's performance with the latter has surfaced online, while Nonpoint posted about the vocalist's appearance, "Welcome back my brother. Feels so good to get you back where you belong, onstage doing what you were born to do."
