Hellyeah announce Australian and New Zealand tour - August 2015

'This isn’t a rock concert. We’re in this together. We are a fuckin’ family, and this is heavy metal psychotherapy 101!' - Chad Gray

Brace yourself for full on metal assault when Hellyeah return to our shores after long 5 years for a headline tour of Australia & NZ this coming August! – This will be their first tour of NZ since 2007 too!

Featuring ex-Mudvayne singer Chad Gray, ex-Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul,  ex-Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell, bassist Kyle Sanders (ex-Bloodsimple and brother of Mastodon bassist Troy Sanders) and Christian Brady (ex-Überschall) guitar. Hellyeah are in a league of their own with their own. Their distinct sound and stage presence is best described as pure metallic fury and the envy of fans and other musicians all over the world. 

After eight years, three albums, countless tours as headliners, festival favourites and as special guests to Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat, Five Finger Death Punch and more, Hellyeah have gone for the jugular with their latest album Blood For Blood. Every song on the album is a belter and doesn’t give the listener an inch. And the bands live shows have been more intense than ever! With the recent addition of Saunders and Brady, the guys have a new found energy that feeds the crowd relentlessly and sees them going nuts and moshing from the front row to the back every single night. Hellyeah Live in 2015 delivers the best of both worlds.

Expect back-breaking mosh pits, throat destroying scream-alongs and a sense of weight being lifted from your shoulders. This band is full-on dedicated to ensuring their shows are as much about the fans as about the band so these shows will be something special!
