HELLYEAH, the new band featuring former PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott alongside members of MUDVAYNE and NOTHINGFACE, will release its self-titled debut album on April 10 via Epic Records.

The quintet includes three of hard rock's most revered and valuable players, with careers highlighted by an astonishing run of chart-topping gold and platinum albums, major industry awards, critical acclaim, Grammy nominations and music of monolithic power.

"Tom [Maxwell, NOTHINGFACE; guitar], Jerry [Montano, DANZIG, NOTHINGFACE; bass] and I have been talking about working together ever since we staggered through the streets of New Orleans five years ago," says MUDVAYNE/HELLYEAH vocalist Chad "Helvis" Gray. "I mentioned it to Greg [Tribbett, MUDVAYNE; guitar] and he immediately wanted in, and when Vinnie came on board the whole thing just took on a life of its own. This was a must-do project for all of us."

"The guys from HELLYEAH and the incredible music we've created have brought me back to what I love," states Vinnie. "'HellYeah' is the best record I've collaborated on since [PANTERA's] 'Vulgar Display of Power'. The vibe is positive with a kick-your-ass-attitude.' I can't wait to take this band on tour."

Gray and Tribbett will tour in support of the HELLYEAH debut in between recording the new MUDVAYNE album. The follow-up to 2004's blockbuster release, "Lost And Found", which debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's Top 200, is due this fall and finds the Grammy-nominated quartet working once again with producer Dave Fortman (EVANESCENCE, SUPERJOINT RITUAL).

"It's cool to have both MUDVAYNE and HELLYEAH as creative outlets now, even though the approach, subject matter, and attitudes between the two projects are completely different," says Gray. "I'm looking forward to balancing both bands in my life — my new extremely busy life."

A nine-minute video of HELLYEAH writing and recording its self-titled album in Dallas, Texas has been posted online at YouTube.com. Two songs from the CD — "Hellyeah" and "Matter of Time" — are available for listening on the band's MySpace page.

please, no one comment back for Machine Man.
All this person does is try and provoke attacks for his comments and take the topic completely off of what it was originally. I've seen this specific person do this a couple of times, and hope that we can just ignore them this time, the comments are pointless.

Can't really compare this band to Pantera or Damageplan, only the drummer is in Hellyeah (which is a dumb name). Nothingface had pretty good guitarists, not a big Mudvayne fan, but whatever. The two songs I've heard are alright.

Honestly, I think you're a "menace to mankind and the human race." Honestly, you're kind of a waste of a person. What are you doing on this website if all you do is insult people and put down some of the greatest rock artists there ever were? Like c war said, do you even like metal? I understand that everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I see you in almost every story putting a stupid comment down and picking fights. I think everyone pretty much just thinks you're just some stupid a$$ who's probably about twelve years old.

This no way sounds like Mudvayne. Its a totally different sound. Come on guys stop expecting artists to sound exactly like there original band. Im honestly hoping this is Greys outlet from Mudvayne that caused Lost and Found. I did enjoy the album but i miss that iron sack of nuts that we heard in LD50 and TEoATtC. This is gunna be a jammin year. Im already loving the self titled track this band made....but most of all i cant wait to go see this band and tear up the f***ing pits. Vinnie is doing it for Dimebag after all and we know it. RIP Dime, but most of all..let the abbott reign of terror continue. and for that dude ranting and raving hes kinda slow on his own facts. His first post he said vinnie broke up Damageplan. Well it was kind of innevitable because with Dimebags fatal shooting, the singer from Damageplan was shot..so..yah, if your going to insult anyone at least try and be correct, ignorant or not.
