HELLYEAH! drummer Vinnie Paul has released a short video message for fans at this location.

The legendary Pantera sticksman said that he saw the band as a continuation of the music he had always strived to make with his late brother Dimebag Darrell.

"I was playing with people that I'd never played with before. I knew that if I'd ended up comparing them to Dime, it would never live up to my expectations.

"But I did it the right way, man. I just took it for what it was, and once we started playing, all of the ominous feelings that was there when we first came in went away."

Regarding the band’s name, singer Chad Grey of Mudvayne said, "It's rebellious. It means late teens, keggers and chicks and AC/DC and METALLICA. That's what I think when I hear these songs. It's a very youth- ful, making-bad-decisions-and-learning-from-them record. To me, it's summertime when I was 19 years old."

"The other night we were at the SALIVA show, and the singer said, 'Can I get a Hellyeah?' And I'm like 'Thanks for promoting my band, brother!' "

"All of these rock singers are gonna have to come up with something else to ask the crowd now, 'cause we done coined it. It's ours. We own it now."

Last night saw HELLYEAH! broadcast their album launch party live on their website. The band’s first video for single ‘You Wouldn’t Know’ can be seen here.

I'm not too moved by the band actually, but I'm thrilled that Vinnie is on his throne and kicking. The rest of the band are all quite functional but I expected a little better from Chad Grey and a little more from the Nothingface guys...They have always come across as a diamond in the nu-metal rough (especially on Violence) but Hell Yeah mutes their personality at least in the 3 tracks I've heard thus far.
