ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hellyeah, stylized as HELLYEAH, is an American heavy metal supergroup from Dalls, Texas, formed in 2006. The band's current lineup consists of lead vocalist Chad Gray, lead guitarist Christian Brady, rhythm guitarist Tom Maxwell, and bassist Kyle Sanders. The idea to form a supergroup originated in 2000 on the Tattoo The Earth tour, although plans were constantly put on hold due to scheduling conflicts. The summer of 2006 allowed the band to take the project seriously and record its first album. Recorded at Chasin' Jason studio in Dimebag Darrell's backyard, a self-titled album was completed in roughly one month. Released on April 10, 2007, the album entered the Billboard at number 9, selling 45,000 copies.
