Hellyeah Shares New Song Called 'Perfect'
Hellyeah has released a new song called "Perfect," taken from the band's sixth studio album, Welcome Home. The track showcases the band's different influences, starting off with a stripped back country-blues stomp before the full instrumentation kicks in. Musically, it's one of the band's most accessible songs.
Welcome Home is due out September 27th. The disc marks the group's final effort with drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, who passed away more than a year ago. "Perfect" is the fourth song to arrive from the album, following "333," the title track and "Oh My God."
The band was nearly finished with the album when Abbott died in 2018 from heart problems. They decided to finish the LP as a tribute to the legendary drummer, and recently they welcomed Stone Sour's Roy Mayorga to the lineup for the foreseeable future.
Singer Chad Gray told us not long ago how the band prepares new songs to put in the show: "We'll all get in a room, and we just kind of start with the first song and we just hammer that out a couple of times, kind of work the bugs out of it, and it starts sounding more and more like that song. Something that we always do, we get together and we play through every single song and we work all the bugs out of every single song."
Hellyeah is currently on a North American summer trek that brings the band to Wichita, Kansas on Tuesday (August 13th). While on tour, the band is donating proceeds from ticket sales to the American Heart Association, raising awareness for heart disease.
