Hell Yeah Tickets
With the release of their self-titled debut album in 2007, HELLYEAH introduced the world to a band comprising reputable heavy metal musicians and their signature sounds. Chad Gray, Tom Maxwell, Vinnie Paul, Kyle Sanders and Christian Brady are individually respected American musicians. The work they have produced together since forming HELLYEAH, however, has been equally praiseworthy. The band has released its latest album titled UNDEN!ABLE and is touring it across the U.S. Heavy Metal fans across the nation have an opportunity to catch the band performing their latest hits. Hell Yeah tickets are available for all of the band’s shows this fall.
The lead-up to UNDEN!ABLE
HELLYEAH’s previous album, 2014’s Blood for Blood became their quintessential album, which metal fans and critics lauded equally. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard Hard Rock album chart and set the band’s esteem on an all-time high. While enjoying this new-found success, the next challenge for the group was maintaining this quality on the next record. As Vinnie Paul puts it, “we turned a corner with Blood for Blood and we wanted to continue that path. It’s much heavier and darker, and we take it to another extreme.”
The band’s fifth studio album, UNDEN!ABLE is a formidable follow-up to 2014’s smash hit Blood for Blood. It charts the same emotional turmoil Blood for Blood covers. However, it is much more intense and dark, and is on another extreme altogether. Creatively, the album propagates a sense of community and togetherness for the contemporary metal community. The upside down “i” in the album title doubles as an exclamation mark and is indicative of the spirit with which metal fans live and exist. No matter how old you are, you are always a metal kid.
The more one learns about UNDEN!ABLE’s behind the scenes, the more it seems unbelievable that this album was released so quickly. There was a crucial time crunch during the crafting process of this record because the band had just completed an eighteen month long tour for Blood for Blood. After its completion the band was given exactly two weeks off before it started working on UNDEN!ABLE. Fuelled by sleeplessness, Tommy Maxwell became a force of creativity and in literally no time had penned down multiple possible tracks. He confessed, “I was pissed, agitated, and distraught. In the long run, it helped. There was so much intensity in the frustration.”
The band seized this window of opportunity which helped them maximize their results. The new songs are redemptive and at the same time throttling which would “scratch your soul”, according to Gary. The track “Love Falls”, for example, is rhythmic and sultry—an equal measure of pain and anger. “STARTARIOT”, on the other hand, is a high energy heavy metal epic with intensity reflective of metal fans.
The band considers this album a ‘complete’ work, with visuals that match the album’s angst. Designed by William “Wombat” Felch and envisioned by Chad Gray, its eye is an emblem of the metal community. Combined with the exclamation mark in the title, the eye is a window into a metal-head’s soul.
In 2017, HELLYEAH has toured with Korn. However, the heavy metal band is expected back in the US this summer on tour for UNDEN!ABLE. HELLYEAH concerts are adrenaline-inducing joyrides for heavy metal fans. These events attract a great demographic of metal fans, given to the long musical careers of the band’s individual members. Formed in 2007, the band itself has a younger fan base. So, their music becomes ageless and their concerts are platforms for multiple generations of metal-heads to enjoy their favorite music. Hell Yeah tickets are available now for the band’s events across the US. Check them out, look for a venue near you and book your seats soon, otherwise you might just miss out on one of metal’s hottest nights.
