Hellyeah announced the release date for their new studio album is June 10th, and they have major line up change news too. Two members will not return, and they picked up a new one. Guitarist Greg Tribbett (Mudvayne) and bassist Bob Zilla (Damageplan) have apparently left the band, which still features Mudvayne's Chad Gray, Pantera's Vinnie Paul and Nothingface's Tom Maxwell.
Zilla has reportedly been replaced by Kyle Sanders from Bloodsimple. Comments from their Facebook page, were: "Things happen for necessary reasons. It's so easy for people to assume or makeup reasons for things. Don't ASSUME anything! The reasons for this parting of ways was for the better good. When you hear the new record you'll understand."
The new studio album, "Blood for Blood", out 6/10 was recorded in Las Vegas with producer Kevin Churko who also worked with Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment.
Two digital singles are coming on March 25th. The lead track should hit radio in April, titled 'Sangre Per Sangre (Blood for Blood)' and 'Cross to Bier (Cradle of Bones)' will be released to metal radio. Hopefully we can see the new line up in action this fall!!
