Hellyeah, the southern tinged metal "supergroup" founded by members of Nothingface, Mudvayne and Vinnie Paul of Pantera/Damageplan fame, has announced that they will be releasing their second studio album around the April/May mark of next year with plenty of touring to follow. Drummer Vinnie Paul has also stated the album is half-done at this point in time. No-one is sure whether the band will release the new album through Epic Records again or through Paul's own label, Big Vin Records. The debut sold around 500,000 copies.
Last week, on Thursday and Friday, August 13-14, a series of posts were made by Nothingface members on their MySpace blog before being removed. Tom Maxwell apparently fired the first shot (thanks Blabbermouth for Tom's message, as it was nowhere to be found anymore):
"In the past couple weeks, I've decided that I cannot move forward or continue to work with NOTHINGFACE anymore. This has nothing to do with my NF bandmates Bill Gaal or Chris Houck, but directly with band vocalist Matt Holt. It's in my belief/opinion that Matt no longer has the passion, drive or artistic capabilities to continue in a musical direction. His lack of work ethic and desire to be part of the writing process or to track vocals for the music that has been written has pushed me to make the decision to not be part of NF any longer. It's a shame and I sincerely apologize to all the fans that have stood by us waiting for new music from the original lineup. I don't want to point fingers or lay blame but in fairness to myself, Bill and Chris we tried very hard with the best intentions to bring you all killer new music. Unfortunately, and with regret, I do not think that it's going to happen.
"I just want to say thank you and express my gratitude to all the NOTHINGFACE fans that have supported us over the years. Hailz to you all!!!!"
Bill Gaal responded with this:
"Well, we gave it our best shot, but Nothingface is done. I think Tom said it all in his posting, so there's not much more I'm going to say right now. We're all at different points in our lives, and have all approached music with different levels of ambition and desire over the years. Sometimes those desires match up, but and at this point it just isn't working. This has always been a band with very strong personalities, and we've been able to work through our differences in the past, but those days are over.
"I came back into this band last year with the intention of writing a great record with the original lineup, and I'm sorry that it will not be happening. I apologize to all of the fans out there who stuck by us through this process and who were excited to hear a new record. I was excited to!
"Although I do not think there will ever be a reunion between the 4 of us ever again, there may be projects that some of us collaborate on in the future.
"Thanks again to all of the Nothingface fans all around the world, your support has been unwavering over the years and I've always appreciated that."
Vinnie Paul's Big Vin Records has announced the signing of comedian Chinaman, well known for his impressions of rockers among other things. You can watch a few video clips below. More...
Hellyeah, the Southern flavoured supergroup featuring former Pantera/Damageplan drummer Vinnie Paul as well as members of Mudvayne and Nothingface, has announced that they will be entering the studio next month to record their second album. The band will be hitting the studio on May 15th.
Speaking on label situations, Vinnie Paul states; "We don't know. We're free agents right now. We had a one-disc deal with Epic, and they're practically begging us to come back. We sold nearly 500,000 records for them, which is practically unheard of these days. That's like going platinum 10 years ago."

Phil Anselmo, former frontman of Pantera and Superjoint Ritual and current vocalist of Down and guitarist for Arson Anthem recently did an in depth interview with AntiQuiet, during which he spoke about his days in Pantera, feud with the Abbott brothers and the rumours that he is back on drugs. Some excerpts are as follows:
Antiquiet: I don’t mean to dredge up old bullshit, but I want to talk about something you’ve encountered firsthand. When you had that beef with Dime and Vin, us fans got the word through fuckin’ Metal Hammer and the music journalists, who of course tend to… you know, pull the juicy quotes out, to keep the circus going, to get attention, to sell magazines.
So let’s say things were different and the journalists minded other business, and you guys had space to work it out on your own. Do you think things might have turned out differently?
Phil Anselmo: Well… it’s kind of a moot point here. But if you’re talking in… imaginary terms, if you’re talking what ifs, theoretically, yeah. Rex and I actually talk about it a lot and we know… Pantera could have kept going.
The interview that sparked off everybody’s imagination… Little to everyone’s knowledge, the guy who asked me that- it was supposed to be off the record- he asked me straight out what would happen if [we] got into a fight- a physical thing. First of all, that never would have happened. Second of all, theoretically, once again- obviously, I would have the advantage over them. So I put it in a [certain] way, like a million motherfuckers do every day- boxers, et cetera- you know, they say they’re going to do terrible, horrible things to each other, and then after everything clears, they shake hands and hug each other and it’s done.
But if things are put as an absolute, and it’s just black and white, it’s just read and it’s taken that way, and it’s very unfortunate that it was. Because, as I’ve said before, Pantera was a mighty force man. More...

Since announcing plans to reunite earlier this year and reportedly working on new material, Nothingface has been fairly quiet in the news. With all of the members' side projects including Hellyeah, Noise Within, and Knives Out!, one might wonder if Nothingface is still on track with their reunion.
Now, the band has issued a short message of reassurance:
"To the fans... Just wanted to say THANK YOU so much for all the support over the years!
"Nothingface is very much ALIVE and WELL...
"The Violence Returns in 2009"
Nothingface reunited earlier this year and started writing and recording music for a new album, marking the first time the band's original members have worked together as a unit since their "Violence" record in 2000.
Jerry Montano, the former bassist of Nothingface, Hellyeah, and Danzig is to sue country singer John Rich after the two had an altercation at a hotel recently. Montano claims that Rich became violent and belligerent over a girl, which led to the incident between the two. Montano claims he is suing for an undisclosed amount relating to cuts, permanent scarring, scrapes, swelling and bruising to his lips, jaw, face, teeth and nose. The bassist had apparently previously been warned of Rich's behaviour when drunk.
Formed in 2008 in their hometown of Baltimore, MD, five friends - members of HellYeah, Nothingface, Dog Fashion Disco and PolkaDot Cadaver - have come together to form a new band, KNIVES OUT! The band consists of:
Todd Smith (Dog Fashion Disco) - vocals
Jasan Stepp (Dog Fashion Disco) - guitar
Tommy Sickles (ex-Nothingface) - drums
Dave Cullen (PolkaDot Cadaver) - bass
Tom Maxwell (Hellyeah) - guitar

Vinnie Paul Abbott has announced his deal with Ddrum to create a new signature product line of drums.
“I’m proud to announce that I am making the move to Ddrum. This opportunity is giving me the chance to expand beyond playing music and bring my own line of kick ass, affordable drums to skin bashers around the world. Simply put, these drums look and sound amazing. Hell yeah!” Vinnie Paul.
"Vinnie Paul is the star in metal drumming, period. There is no doubt that this is a new day at Ddrum" says Ddrum CEO, Elliott Rubinson." Division manager, Terry Platt adds “The signature products from Vinnie are going to be sick.”
