HELLYEAH will release its fifth album, “Unden!able”, on June 3 via Eleven Seven Music.
The band gave fans the first taste of “Unden!able” six weeks ago with lead single “Human”, which is #20 this week on the Mediabase Active Rock radio chart, the #1 spin gainer, and the #2 most added Active Rock song. The official lyric video for “Human” was welcomed by fans who are embracing the band’s return to form with almost a quarter of a million views on YouTube after just over a month.
“Unden!able” marks the first time HELLYEAH‘s current lineup — vocalist Chad Gray, guitarists Tom Maxwell and Christian Brady, drummer Vinnie Paul and bassist Kyle Sanders — has recorded together as a unit, promising a very special return to their true metal roots.
HELLYEAH‘s official video for “Human”, which is due out very soon, was filmed in Los Angeles under the direction of Robert Sexton, who also helmed clips for “Hush” and “Moth”, both Top 10 singles from 2014’s critically acclaimed “Blood For Blood” album.
“Unden!able” was produced in Las Vegas at The Hideout Recording Studio by Kevin Churko (PAPA ROACH, ROB ZOMBIE), and showcases everything that the band’s fans have come to know and love in a more focused, concise, and powerful sound, with Churko co-writing all songs.
The album art by William Felch and Chad Gray features a predatory, gleaming eye with an exclamation point pupil — the ultimate signifier of what’s inside: anger, pain and a hyper-focused, high octane, heavy metal collection for the ages.
Maxwell offered: “There’s a lot of new stuff coming out that we’ve never tried before, and a lot of heavy shit… It’s gonna be moody, it’s gonna be dark, it’s gonna be crushing, it’s gonna be heartbreaking, it’s gonna be everything. So it’s going to be a proper take-off from our last record, but with a lot of new surprises, musically and lyrically. We are moving forward with the path that we’ve taken with ‘Blood For Blood’. It’s a really, really savage album, and we’re really excited for fans to hear it.”
“Unden!able” will be available just in time for HELLYEAH‘s upcoming “Hell Pop Tour” with IN THIS MOMENT, which starts on June 18 in Des Moines, Iowa. This run will follow HELLYEAH‘s “We’re All In This Together” headlining tour which also features ESCAPE THE FATE, NEW YEARS DAY and FROM ASHES TO NEW, kicking off May 2 in Baltimore, Maryland.
Fans who purchase tickets from participating venues for the “We’re All In This Together” tour receive a free tour eight-track sampler — comprised of two songs from each band, including “Human”.
