Hellyeah have confirmed that they’re close to completing their fourth album, expected for release on April 28.
And mainman Vinnie Paul says the record is set to be “heavy and diverse” and their “very best” music.
Former Pantera drummer Paul, Mudvayne’s Chad Grey and Greg Tribbet, Tom Maxwell of Nothingface and ex-Damageplan man Bobzilla are currently based in a Las Vegas studio with producer Kevin Churko, who has previously worked with Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch and In This Moment.
Paul reports: “It was an honour working with Kevin. He really pushed and got the best out of us. Everything we did on this record was from a different perspective.”
Churko adds: “They’ve really impressed me both with the tracks they brought in and with their drive to make them even better. I think they’ll really be delivering their best record yet – 2014 will be the year of Hellyeah.”
Full details of the band’s second release via Eleven Seven Music will be available in due course.
