It’s bittersweet when a band have to release an album following the passing of a key band member (or any member for that matter) but HELLYEAH are in this exact situation following the sudden death of drummer Vinnie Paul last year, just after he had wrapped up recording his drum parts for the band’s new album Welcome Home. Instead of shelving the idea and band completely, the members decided to keep Vinnie’s legacy alive and continue on with the outfit and the release of his last pieces of work he ever did.
On this week’s podcast, frontman Chad Gray goes into detail about the journey he and his bandmates faced following the tragedy, including where he was when he received that dreaded phone call, what made them push through and finish off the album and just how much of it Vinnie heard before he left this earth. Now there’s wasn’t much room to ask questions because Chad had ALOT to offer and talk about in what podcast host Browny has called one of the most emotionally driven interviews he has ever conducted in his entire career. Strap yourself in, grab the tissues and get ready to hear all about this incredible piece of work from HELLYEAH.
There’s also plenty of New Music to get through from Bad Wolves, Bare Bones, Lindemann, Ghost, Jinjer, New Years Day and SHVPES, throwbacks from Pantera (of course) and Disturbed + more!
