Fans have been wondering what the future of the band Hellyeah would be after drummer Vinnie Paul passed away last year around this time. Rumors began to circulate if the band would be done, if Mudvayne would come back, etc. Turns out, Hellyeah continues on and they have announced a tour alongside the last album with Vinnie Paul’s drum tracks.
The album titled ‘Welcome Home’ will release on Sept. 27th of this year, and a tour will go along with it with Stone Sour drummer Roy Mayorga, which is a wonderful fit for that band.
Sadly, there are no super close by dates for this tour. The closest to Eastern Iowa will be:
August 7-Minneapolis, MN
I have had the pleasure many times to see Hellyeah live, even with the original lineup too! I even have a drum head signed by the band and have chatted with Vinnie and Tom quite a few years ago. I’m happy to see the band moving on and continuing the legacy of Vinnie too.
