Hellyeah will release its sixth studio album, titled Welcome Home, on Friday, September 27th. The official music video for the disc’s title track will be made available this Friday. The disc contains the final recordings by late Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, who died in June 2018 after laying down his drum tracks for the LP. The band has tapped Stone Sour drummer Roy Mayorga to tour with them, with an 18-city headlining trek set to kick off on July 23rd in Atlanta, hit Denver on August 3rd and wind down on August 17th with a “special celebration” in Dallas, the area where Vinnie and his late brother, “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, spent their formative years. Bassist Kyle Sanders stated, “While Vinnie Paul is obviously irreplaceable, one thing we can’t not do is tour. As easy as it would be to say we’re not going on the road, we have to. Vinnie would be extremely disappointed in us if we didn’t promote this record properly. He’d be pissed off at all of us . . . and we know that.”
