Hellyeah Shares Teaser For Upcoming Sixth LP
Hellyeah has released a new teaser video for its upcoming album. The LP will mark the band's final effort with drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, who passed away in June 2018. Abbott reportedly finished laying down his drum tracks for the album before his death.
Abbott said about the album last January, "Every record since Blood For Blood has just been a big, gigantic mountain for us to build and build and this one has already reached a plateau that I know is gonna be… It's gonna top Unden!able."
The band's sixth studio LP will follow up 2016's Unden!able, which featured a hit cover version of Phil Collins' "I Don't Care Anymore." The song featured a previously unreleased guitar solo recorded by Vinnie's late brother and bandmate, "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, who passed away in 2004.
Vinnie told us at the time why it was so emotional to have his late brother's guitar solo on the song: "You know, we've always said all along, we felt like Dime was our sixth member, you know. From day one I always felt like he was patting me on the back and just telling me this is the right thing for me to be doing, this is what I need to be doing. And so for him to be a part of a Hellyeah track is really special for us."
Hellyeah has yet to announce a release date for the new LP or who will play drums for the band when it hits the road this year.
