Hellyeah is a 'supergroup' made up of great musicians from a range of heavy metal bands - Mudvayne, Pantera, Nothingface and Damage Plan. Current members are Chad Gray(vox), Greg Tribbett (guitar), Tom Maxwell (guitar), Bob Zillz (bass) and Vinnie Paul Abbott (drums). A lot of people would believe they are a 'nu-metal' band however, that is incorrect.
Their self-titled album, 'Hellyeah', debuted on April 10, 2007 via Epic Records. The album debuted at #9 on the Billboard 200 album charts, with sales of just under 45,000. It also reached #9 on the UK charts and #4 on the Australian charts. Their first single, 'You Wouldn't Know', hit radio stations in late February. Vinnie Paul has stated that Hellyeah is a side-project, saying that they will tour for most of 2007, before the members of Mudvayne and Nothingface return to their bands.
