Hell Yeah

Hellyeah, stylized as HELLYEAH, was an American heavy metal supergroup formed in Dallas, Texas, in 2006. The band's last lineup consisted of lead vocalist Chad Gray, guitarists Christian Brady and Tom Maxwell, bassist Kyle Sanders, and drummer Roy Mayorga. The idea to form a supergroup originated in 2000 on the Tattoo the Earth tour, although plans were constantly put on hold due to scheduling conflicts. The summer of 2006 allowed the band to take the project seriously and record its first album. Recorded at Chasin' Jason studio in Dimebag Darrell's backyard, their self-titled album entered the Billboard 200 at number 9,[1] selling 45,000 copies. They went on to release five more studio albums between 2010 and 2019. As of 2021, the band is on hiatus.

Hellyeah's beginnings can be traced back to 2000 on the Tattoo the Earth tour featuring Mudvayne, Nothingface, Slayer, Slipknot, and Sevendust.[2] Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell became friends with Mudvayne vocalist Chad Gray, and they talked about the possibility of forming a supergroup.[2] The following year, Nothingface toured with Mudvayne and talks to form the supergroup continued, although were constantly put on hold due to scheduling conflicts. At this time, Gray and Maxwell had brainstormed five band names.[3]

Paul built the members a cabana style house on his pool deck with air conditioning, a TV, and beds so the members felt comfortable while recording. Paul produced the record and Gray felt Paul "facilitated the whole thing".[9] The album was completed in roughly a month, with three recording sessions. The band worked on the record for eight days and returned home for a break. A 14-day session followed the break, and then another 10 days in the studio. Gray asserts the breaks in between recording sessions were to "re-charge the batteries", and "get a fresh head".[9] As the line-up was complete, the band started to brainstorm names. When a member thought of a name, they would write it on a piece of paper and put it in an amp box outside the studio. Someone wrote "Hellyeah", and the band thought it was a perfect choice.[citation needed] Paul says it's "very affirmative and full of attitude. When your buddy asks if you want to get a beer tonight, you don't just say 'yes,' you say, "Hell yeah!".[6][failed verification] Gray attributes the name to "late teens, keggers and chicks and AC/DC and Metallica".[10]

Revolver was one of the first print publications to feature the band in March 2007.[4] The self-titled track, "Hellyeah", started gaining satellite radio airplay in February 2007, and the first single "You Wouldn't Know" hit American radio airwaves the same month. "You Wouldn't Know" peaked at number 5 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks, and 35 on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks. The album's second single, "Alcohaulin' Ass" peaked at number 7 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks.[11] The band's self-titled album, Hellyeah was released on April 10, 2007, via Epic Records. The album debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 album charts, with sales of just under 45,000.[12] The album peaked on the Top Hard Rock albums at number 15,[13] and number 3 on the Top Rock Albums.[14] As of October 18, 2007, the album has sold 204,000 copies.[15]

Hellyeah received generally positive reviews. William Ruhlmann of Allmusic awarded the album three and a half stars out of five, commenting; "Their album is a competent example of its genre, in which Tribbett and Maxwell combine to create crushing riffs over the pummeling rhythm section of Paul, while Gray howls typically enraged, expletive-littered lyrics to songs". However, Ruhlmann believes Hellyeah is not a notable variation from members' previous bands.[2] reviewer Don Kaye awarded the album 7 out of 10, praising the track "Matter of Time" for its slashing main riff, and "One Thing" as it "marches to the finish line with a rumbling, crunching wall of guitars worthy of Dimebag himself". Kaye thought that Hellyeah's first studio effort was not equal to any of its members' main output.[16] KNAC contributor Andrew Depedro stated "it's a set of good songs recorded by 5 accomplished musicians from diverse backgrounds not letting their pasts define them and those songs in one form or another speak to you in different ways".[17]

Bassist Montano was asked to leave Hellyeah after the album's release party, where he assaulted guitarist Tom Maxwell and made numerous gun threats while heavily intoxicated.[18] The band's publicist stated his departure was due to "personal reasons on both sides"[19] The band considered Damageplan bassist Bob Zilla as Paul thought; "It was kind of hard to go ahead and commit to this band without Bob being part of it".[20] Zilla was invited to audition and got the gig immediately.[7]

Hellyeah embarked on their first tour in May 2007 titled Fire it Up, made an appearance at the Download Festival, and underwent Australian tour in July 2007. The Family Values Tour with Korn and Evanescence, saw the band start touring in late July, which also consisted playing with Alter Bridge in San Antonio before passing through thirty cities before ending in Washington, D.C.[20] A DVD titled Below the Belt was released on November 13, 2007, and featured a documentary, music videos, performance footage from the making of the album, first studio sessions, coverage of the band's world tour, and personal interviews. It was produced by members of the band and Ryan Ziemba.[15]

Hellyeah headlined a tour in the spring of 2010 with: Seether, Five Finger Death Punch, Drowning Pool, and Lacuna Coil. The first date was May 11, 2010 in Madison, WI.[21] They were also confirmed to play the main stage at Download Festival 2010. In 2009, the band revealed that they were in the studio recording a new album, later revealed to be titled Stampede.

Hellyeah finished recording a new album, titled Band of Brothers, and were extremely satisfied with the production of the record; which was produced by Jeremy Parker, who has produced albums for Godsmack and Evanescence, and was recorded in the home of drummer Vinnie Paul's studio in Arlington, Texas; VP's Upstairs Studio. Band of Brothers was released on July 17, 2012, via Eleven Seven Music, the band's new record label home after leaving Epic Records.[25] The digital single "War In Me" was released on iTunes on April 3, 2012.[26] Debut single "Band of Brothers" was released in early May with a music video and will be released on iTunes. On May 8, 2012, the band's second single off their third album of the same name, "Band of Brothers" was released.[27]

Slayer was chosen to headline the 2015 Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival. The bands Hellyeah, King Diamond, The Devil Wears Prada, Thy Art Is Murder, Whitechapel, Jungle Rot, Sister Sin, Sworn In, Shattered Sun, Feed Her to the Sharks, Code Orange & Kissing Candice also participated in the Rockstar Tour. The festival covered 26 stops from June 26 through August 2.[33]

Vinnie Paul died on June 22, 2018; his cause of death was later announced as dilated cardiomyopathy and coronary artery disease.[42][43] Paul was last seen in public partying at a rock concert at Beauty Bar Las Vegas hours before his passing.[44][45] Shortly before his death, Vinnie laid down the drum tracks for Hellyeah's sixth album at The Hideout recording studio in Las Vegas.[46]

On May 6, 2019, Hellyeah made the announcement on their official Facebook page that Stone Sour drummer Roy Mayorga would join Hellyeah for their upcoming show on May 11, 2019, celebrating the life of their late drummer Vinnie Paul.

A week later, the band announced Mayorga as the new drummer for Hellyeah,[48] while also announcing Welcome Home as the title of their new album and that the release date was pushed back to September 27.[49]

In May 2021, Mayorga revealed during his appearance on The New York Hardcore Chronicles Live! podcast that Hellyeah is currently on hiatus, partly due to Gray's commitments with Mudvayne,[50] who had announced the month before that they were reuniting for their first shows in over a decade.[51]

Hellyeah's late drummer, Vinnie Paul, described the band's sound as "a familiar groove, with a new sound".[6] reviewer Don Kaye commented "with little of the complexity of Mudvayne or angularity of Nothingface and much more of the full-on, pedal-to-the-metal style of Vinnie Paul's previous work".[16] However, Kaye said the songs "Star" and "Thank You" border on musical cliché.[16] Andrew Depedro of stated "'Alcohaulin' Ass' showcases Gray's hidden talent as an outlaw country and western-type crooner in the intro", although he thought the band's lyrics were repetitive.[17] Hellyeah has been categorized as heavy metal,[2] alternative metal[52] and groove metal.[53][54][55]

"It's cool being around two 'SNL' legends [Steve Martin and Martin Short]," Gomez said in her monologue. "When I found out I was hosting, I immediately asked for their advice." She said she also asked Cyrus, one of her oldest friends, for advice. "'Just have yourself and be fun,'" Gomez said in Cyrus's accent. "I was like, 'Miley, is that just an excuse for me to do an impression of you?'" Gomez continued. "And she's like, 'Hell yeah, I'm Miley Cyrus.'"

Miley Cyrus took to Instagram to show off her DIY skills. The singer shared a photo of herself in a white tank top that she made, featuring bold block letters that read \"Hell Yeah I'm Miley Cyrus\" on the front. The post comes as a playful response to her friend Selena Gomez, who did her best impression of Cyrus while hosting \"Saturday Night Live.\"\n\"It's cool being around two 'SNL' legends [Steve Martin and Martin Short],\" Gomez said in her monologue. \"When I found out I was hosting, I immediately asked for their advice.\" She said she also asked Cyrus, one of her oldest friends, for advice. \"'Just have yourself and be fun,'\" Gomez said in Cyrus's accent. \"I was like, 'Miley, is that just an excuse for me to do an impression of you?'\" Gomez continued. \"And she's like, 'Hell yeah, I'm Miley Cyrus.'\"\nCyrus referenced that moment directly in her post caption, writing, \"HELL YEAH I'M MILEY CYRUS \ud83e\uded6 @selenagomez @nbcsnl.\" The fellow former Disney actress posed on a bed in her T-shirt, a cup of green tea in hand, wearing nothing but her briefs and a crystal necklace. The \"Hannah Montana\" star was likely taking a break between outings; she's been on a fashion roll in New York City lately. \nAfter wowing the audience on \"Late Night With Seth Meyers\" in a stunning vintage Alexander McQueen slip dress, she stopped traffic in the streets of New York in a black lingerie-inspired minidress by John Galliano. The following day, she was clad in another style by the same designer, a sultry red off-shoulder gown worn for the NBC Upfront at Radio City Music Hall. It feels like Cyrus has started a new chapter in her personal style, one marked by a rock-and-roll edge with a touch of glamour. \nRelive her recent street style moments ahead. \n\n Related:\n\n \n \n
