Ever sice Hellyeah announced that they would be releasing their next album wih Vinnie Paul's last-ever recorded drum tracks, we've been super curious to hear what it might sound like.
Well, the first single from that record called '333' is now out for the world to hear and it's actually a pretty heavy offering for the band, with tons of dirty riffs, aggressive vocals from Chad Gray and of course, thunderous drums from the legend Vinnie himself. Check out the official vieo below and bang your head:
Chad Gray said of the track:
"Vinnie originally came up with the idea for '333'. A lot of people may think Vinnie was just a drummer, but he was much more than just a badass, slamming, smashing drummer. He understood production and composition and he was very much a contributor to the writing process. This song was his baby; it belonged to and came from him. Unfortunately, by the time I was ready to actually write the lyrics, it was after Vinnie had passed. The lyrics embrace and recognize the feelings that most metal fans have. Being treated like outcasts and being judged for the way we look or dress. It's a reminder to all the metal fans that no matter what, you will always have a place in our worldwide metal community. With that said... Welcome to the family! We're all the root of half-evil-reppin' 333!"
The record has a tentative release date of June 28 but is yet to be titled.
