Hellyeah has released “333,” the first song from the band’s upcoming sixth studio album and last to feature the late Vinnie Paul Abbott on drums. The song has been accompanied by a music video shot in Brooklyn, New York earlier this month. The disc will arrive this summer, with an official release date yet to be confirmed. Singer Chad Gray said, “Vinnie originally came up with the idea for ‘333.’ A lot of people may think Vinnie was just a drummer, but he was much more than just a badass, slamming, smashing drummer. He understood production and composition and he was very much a contributor to the writing process. This song was his baby; it belonged to and came from him. Unfortunately, by the time I was ready to actually write the lyrics, it was after Vinnie had passed.” The title “333” reportedly refers to the fact that the number three was loved by Vinnie Paul’s brother, late Pantera guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott. Gray continued, “I love ‘333’ and what it represents — being half evil. It was a part of Dime and Vinnie before Hellyeah was formed and very much became a part of Hellyeah as we carried the torch for Dimebag.” Vinnie Paul Abbott passed away in June 2018 from heart disease at the age of 54, while his brother Darrell was shot to death onstage in December 2004. The two siblings are buried next to each other and their mother in Texas.
