Metal-Trails.com recently conducted an interview with HELLYEAH guitarist Tom Maxwell. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.

As previously reported, HELLYEAH has tapped producer Kevin Churko to helm the band’s fourth studio album, tentatively due in early 2014. Churko is the Canadian musician, sound engineer, songwriter and record producer who has previously worked with OZZY OSBOURNE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and IN THIS MOMENT, among other acts.

The recording sessions for the new HELLYEAH CD will take place this fall at Churko‘s The Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada.

HELLYEAH‘s first three albums were laid down in Dallas, Texas at drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott‘s home studio, VP’s Upstairs Studio.

Speaking to the 93X radio station at this year’s Rock Fest in Cadott, Wisconsin, Vinnie Paul stated about HELLYEAH‘s plans for the next CD: “We’ve done the past three HELLYEAH records [at my home studio in Dallas], but this [next] record, we really wanna go to another level with our music, and we’re working with Kevin Churko, who’s produced Ozzy and FIVE FINGER and IN THIS MOMENT and all that. We’re actually recording that in Vegas right down the street from my house in Vegas, so it’s almost gonna be as convenient as doing the Texas one.”

He added: “We’re already writing [material for the next album]. This tour [Gigantour] goes until August 20 and as soon as we’re done, we go right into the studio with Kevin and we should have a record out probably early next year.”

HELLYEAH took part in this year’s edition of Gigantour, the critically acclaimed package festival founded in 2005 by MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine. Also appearing on the bill were headliners MEGADETH, along with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, DEVICE, NEWSTED and DEATH DIVISION.

HELLYEAH‘s third album, “Band Of Brothers”, sold 19,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 19 on The Billboard 200 chart.

HALESTORM frontwoman Lzzy Hale joined DEVICE — the new band fronted by DISTURBED singer David Draiman — on stage this past Saturday (August 10) at the Heavy MTL festival at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal, Quebec, Canada to perform a cover version of the 1988 Lita Ford/Ozzy Osbourne classic “Close My Eyes Forever”. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.

DEVICE‘s self-titled debut album includes a cover of “Close My Eyes Forever”, featuring guest vocals from Hale. The Pulse Of Radio asked DEVICE frontman David Draiman if he had been able to play the new version for either Lita or Ozzy yet. “Lita has heard it and she loved it,” he said. “Ozzy, I have not sent to him. I only played it for Lita because she happened to be coming through town here in Austin, Texas and I went to go see her play. But I can only hope that both Ozzy and Sharon (Osbourne) love it and that they see it as what it is, which is just a tribute to the greatest heavy metal frontman of all time.”

DEVICE‘s debut disc came out on April 9, selling 35,000 copies in its first week of release to enter the Billboard album chart at No. 11.

The live version of DEVICE, which features DOPE guitarist Virus and EVANESCENCE drummer Will Hunt in addition to Draiman, took part in this year’s edition of Gigantour, the critically acclaimed package festival founded in 2005 by MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine. Also appearing on the bill were headliners MEGADETH, along with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, NEWSTED, HELLYEAH and DEATH DIVISION..
