Having established themselves over four albums, HELLYEAH officially announce the June 3rd release of UNDEN!ALBE, their fifth full-length album, via Eleven Seven Music.
HELLYEAH gave their fans the first taste of UNDEN!ALBE 6 weeks ago with their lead single, “Human”, which is currently #20 this week on the Mediabase Active Rock radio chart, the #1 spin gainer, and the #2 most added Active Rock song. The band’s official lyric video 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. Watch it HERE.
Comprised of vocalist Chad Gray, guitarists Tom Maxwell and Christian Brady, drummer Vinnie Paul and Kyle Sanders this is the first time this line-up has recorded together as a unit, promising a very special return to their true metal. HELLYEAH’s official video for “Human”was filmed in LA under the direction of Robert Sexton, who also directed videos for “Hush” and “Moth”, both top 10 singles from
UNDEN!ALBE 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 revealed today, 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.
Guitarist Tom 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!ALBE will be available just in time for HELLYEAH’s upcoming “Hell Pop Tour” with In This Moment, which starts on June 18th in Des Moines, IA. This run will follow “We’re All In This Together” headlining which also features Escape The Fate, New Years Day, and From Ashes To New, kicking off May 2nd in Baltimore, MD.
Fans who purchase tickets from participating venues for the “We’re All In This Together” Tour, receive a FREE tour 8 track sampler 2 songs from each band including “Human.”
UNDEN!ALBE features 11 tracks that take off where it’s predecessor Blood For Blood. That album debuted at #1 Billboard Hard Rock Charts in June 2014 and which Revolver Magazine praised as being full of “punchy and vitriolic, unforgiving tracks”. Heavy with a purpose, the band is re-charged, sharpened up and ready to reclaim their rightful spot at the top of the rock charts. This description aptly describes the music fans have been waiting for.
