“Seeing everybody — the excitement on their faces. It’s genuine … It’s been a little rocky, emotionally, for everybody. It’s been a minute since we’ve been out, so it takes some time, but the main thing is giving the fans that glimpse that everything is going to be alright, and it’s been great.”
– Tom Maxwell, Consequence of Sound
Hard rock purveyors HELLYEAH are home after an 18-city “A Celebration Of Life” headliner, honoring the life of bandmate and brother Vinnie Paul, a tour during which friends and fans in HELLYEAH’s heavy metal family mourned and celebrated their hero together.
“An explosive performance that made you mosh, made you smile, made you cry as he spoke of
Vinnie and made you love HELLYEAH even more. It was truly a remarkable and uniquely emotional night for every member of the band. …made this one of the most special concert experiences I’ve ever had.”
With less than a month until the release of their sixth studio album, Welcome Home, due Friday, September 27, via Eleven Seven Music, the band announce today the release of “Black Flag Army,” the final instant download track available when you pre-order the album HERE.

Unfortunately, the band had to cancel a short run of tour dates due to guitarist Tom Maxwell’s trigger finger, detailed in the full statement HERE. The surgery will not affect the band’s November and December U.S. and Canada headlining dates, starting on November 15 in Cincinnati, OH, through December 19 in Phoenix, AZ.
The band will continue to honor their late bandmate by donating a portion of ticket sales from each tour date to the American Heart Association in Vinnie Paul’s memory. Tickets and full routing are available HERE.
In addition to this initiative, HELLYEAH will host a TEXT TO DONATE campaign during each of their upcoming tour dates. Fans can TEXT ‘VINNIE’ to #41411, or head to a special CrowdRise page where they can also DONATE to help fight heart disease, as well as read more about the American Heart Association and HELLYEAH’s interview with them HERE.
