HELLYEAH is currently in Dallas, Texas putting the final touches on their sophomore release titled-"Stampede" (Epic Records), due out July 13th. Once finished, the band will hit the road for a worldwide tour throughout the summer (dates below).

"Stampede," the follow up to the band's 2007 self-titled debut, is being recorded, produced and mixed by Vinnie Paul and Sterling Winfield. Vocalist Chad Gray says of the album “I couldn’t wait to write this record. I can’t wait for our fans to hear it and I definitely can’t wait to hit the fucking stage and play it! Stampede represents every emotion that you’ve ever had and everything that screams HELLYEAH! There’s no smoke and mirrors with what we are. What you see is what you get. And what your get is Five guys bringin’ it, a head full of music, bleeding ears and most likely….Drunk!”

Check out Vinnie and Sterling’s report from the studio and hear a snippet of a brand new song on the band’s YouTube page (and below).

Alice in Chains, awesome. Lacuna Coil, yes I'm down with them. But the rest of those bands are pop metal garbage. I love Pantera and Vinnie Paul, but I never could get behind the fact they play with generic shzt bands like disturbed and drowning pool. O U W T out!
