RockNLive.org recently conducted an interview with former PANTERA and current HELLYEAH drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott. You can now watch the chat below.

HELLYEAH‘s fourth studio album, “Blood For Blood”, will be released on June 10 via Eleven Seven Music. The CD was helmed by producer Kevin Churko at his The Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada. 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.

Prior to the recording of the new album, HELLYEAH parted ways with guitarist Greg Tribbett (MUDVAYNE) and bassist Bob “Zilla” Kakaha (DAMAGEPLAN). A replacement bassist in the shape of Kyle Sanders (former member of BLOODSIMPLE and the brother of MASTODON‘s Troy Sanders) has been secured.

Still in the lineup are original drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, guitarist Tom Maxwell and singer Chad Gray.

Speaking to RockNLive.org about Sanders‘ addition to HELLYEAH, Vinnie Paul said: “After we realized we were gonna have to part ways with Bob and Greg, we wanted to make sure that we brought somebody in that was a ‘bro,’ somebody that we felt comfortable with. We didn’t wanna go through an audition process and bring a whole bunch of different people in that we had no idea, anything about their character or dynamic or what they were all about. And Kyle had toured with HELLYEAH many times with his band BLOODSIMPLE, who we were all fans of. As a matter of fact, BLOODSIMPLE was on Chad‘s label when he had a label. And he was the first guy that came to our mind. And the first phone call we gave to him, we barely mentioned it and he said, ‘I’m the guy. I wanna do it. I wanna do it.’ And that’s all we needed to hear; that was perfect. So he’s gonna be a perfect addition to the band. We shot the videos together and we hung out, and he’s really into it. So it worked out perfect for us. And to complement Tom on guitar, these songs for this record really have a lot of duelling guitars and a lot of parts, we’re gonna add a touring guitarist. We haven’t announced who that is yet, but I can tell you he’s a hell of a guitar player. So we’ll do that soon. And the band’s gonna be stronger than ever. There’s nothing like having some fresh blood out on the road with you. And these guys are gonna kill, we’re gonna kill, and we’ve got a great new record to tour with.”

A press release describes “Blood For Blood” as a “welcome return to form” for the band, adding that it “sounds like a recharged HELLYEAH, taken up many notches.”

HELLYEAH will hit the road this spring, starting with several festival slots in April and May.

HELLYEAH was formed in 2006 by NOTHINGFACE guitarist Tom Maxwell and bassist Jerry Montano, MUDVAYNE singer Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett, and former PANTERA and DAMAGEPLAN drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott.

Montano left a week after the release of the band’s self-titled debut album in 2007 and was replaced by Bob “Zilla” Kakaha, who had played with Abbott in DAMAGEPLAN.

HELLYEAH‘s other albums include 2009’s “Stampede” and 2011’s “Band Of Brothers”.

MUDVAYNE has not released an album since 2009 while Gray and Tribbett have been working with HELLYEAH.

FU MANCHU guitarist/vocalist Bob Balch and drummer Scott Reeder have joined forces with former KYUSS bassist Scott Thomas Reeder in SUN & SAIL CLUB. Their debut album, “Mannequin”, will be released in early November via Satin Records.

The first in a series of video clips featuring footage from the “Mannequin” studio sessions can be seen below.

Said Balch: “In between FU MANCHU tours, I was writing all this material that was really frantic and dark. Lots of notes and strange chords.

“A lot of times I would go interview a guitar player for my site PlayThisRiff.com and come back inspired and full of ideas. Just to make Scott Reeder laugh I would send him a file to play drums on.

“Well, anybody who has seen FU MANCHU live knows Reeder is a monster behind the kit. So I would try to throw him some curveballs to trip him up. No such luck. Every riff I sent him he nailed. After a while, there was an album’s worth of stuff.

“I really wanted Scott Thomas Reeder to play bass on it. I love the work he has done in his recording studio too, so I figured that if we recorded stuff there, hopefully he’d dig it and play on it.

“I remember after the first take we walked into the control room and Reeder said, ‘I had an idea!’ He asked to play on it and I almost crapped myself. I don’t think I’ve ever said ‘Yes!’ faster.

“His bass lines are insane. Lots of drop-A stuff which is probably pretty hard on bass. He nailed it too!

“Once the bass tracks were in place, we needed vocals.

“I had lyrics and melodies in my head. A lot of the vocal parts were four-part harmonies. Crazy stuff. So I laid down vocals on the home demos using a vocoder and a guitar.

“I thought if I could get an unmixed album with vocoder vocals together, I could start sending it out to singers that I liked to see if they had any interest. I went back into Scott Thomas Reeder‘s studio to lay down the vocoder parts as a guide for singers. I did the track ‘Gang Justice’ first and Reeder turned around and said, ‘That’s how the vocals will stay. It’s inane.’ He asked, ‘Do you have stuff for every song using the vocoder?’ I did. So we went to work. The only song I didn’t have vocals for Reeder sang. It’s named ‘I’m Not Upside Down’.

“Overall, this record is heavy and dark. It’s inspired by DEVO, VOIVOD, KRAFTWORK, TORCHE, SLAYER and much as it’s inspired by ASWAD, JOE PASS and WES MONTGOMERY. The riffs are heavy and the vocoder vocals are full of harmonies.

“I wanted a super-heavy groove that would support angelic vocal harmonies. I think we achieved that.

Added Scott Thomas Reeder: “Yeah, Bob from FU MANCHU came into The Sanctuary do some recording with the other Scott Reeder — the drummer from FU MANCHU. I was stoked — been wanting to meet that guy for years! So they knocked out some crazy tracks all in a day — jaw- droppingly great stuff. I didn’t know if it was supposed to just be drums and guitar… so I asked later on, ‘Who’s playing bass on this stuff?’ They hadn’t decided yet, but Bob was gonna come back and put some bass tracks down later. I suggested that maybe I take a stab at it, and they were down! It’s really crazy stuff, the most challenging material I’ve done since I was in THE OBSESSED. I got through most of it — there were a few ‘guide tracks’ in there that I asked Bob to put down that were flawless — I ended up leaving those in. Spent just a few more days with Bob coming back to the ranch to add some textures with his arsenal of effects.

“I was kinda bummed when we wrapped on tracking! It was a blast working with these guys, and I’m glad the the other Reeder is a great guy and a monster drummer — can’t wait for the confusion that is sure to come from having both of us on this thing.”

Said Scott Reeder: About two years ago, Bob and I started trading riffs and beats back and forth via the wonders of modern technology. Sometimes he would be sending me three different things in one file and I would just throw up a 57 as an overhead and record my whole kit and send it back. Or I might have a beat and say, ‘Hey, play something to this.’ ‘Whites Of Your Eyes’ started that way. It was much faster and I was just warming up around the kit and got inspired to get it down. Then we got together and just slowed down the tempo and he added new parts.

“We agreed that most of the stuff needed not to be super picked apart and scrutinized. It was more of a ‘first-thought-best-thought’ approach. And whatever made us just laugh and go, ‘Yeah, that’s super weird. It’s gotta be that way!!’

“It all springs from Bob‘s riffs; he can play anything, but he plays it the way you want to hear it!! As always, that’s the most fun stuff to play to. I think that shows up in recording. It’s fun to listen to.

“We blasted through 10 songs of basics in four hours. We were just having a great time, so we just knocked it out!! And to have that great bass playing of Scott‘s in there, I could not imagine it sounding heavier but, of course, he just blew me away.”

Continued Balch: “In the end, we had J. Robbins (CLUTCH, THE SWORD, THE HIDDEN HAND) mix the record. I loved his work and I’m a big fan of the band he played bass in GOVERNMENT ISSUE. He mixed THE HIDDEN HAND‘s ‘Mother, Teacher, Destroyer’, which is one of my favorite-sounding records. I wanted to get a heavy sound like that, but I also wanted a DEVO ‘Duty Now For The Future’ or RUSH ‘Moving Pictures’ vibe. I think that those ingredients play off the vocoder really well.

“I’ve never even met J. Robbins. It’s funny, I don’t even know what he looks like. We spoke on the phone about the approach I wanted and then I sent the tunes to the East Coast to have him work on it. He did an insane job and was a total pleasure to work with.

“We picked Dan Coutant at Sun Room Audio to master the record. He has worked with CLUTCH and COLISEUM in the past. We saw eye to eye immediately.”

Paul Masvidal (CYNIC, DEATH) co-produced and played guitar on the four-song EP accompanying actor Jim Carrey‘s first children’s book, “How Roland Rolls”.

The tracks “Everything & Nothing”, “Hungry”, “I’m All Yours” and “Keep On Roland” feature the actor singing with his daughter, Jane.

A seven-minute video clip featuring footage of Masvidal working with Carrey in the recording studio can be seen below.

Released on September 24 and published by Some Kind Of Garden Media, “How Roland Rolls” is dedicated to Carrey‘s 3-year-old grandson, Jackson, and features “cinematic” illustrations by Rob Nason (“Anastasia”, “Thumbelina”).

“I wrote ‘How Roland Rolls’ specifically as a way for parents and grandparents to engage with the children in quality together-time,” Carrey wrote in a message on the picture book’s web site.

“Not only will the message of the story help them feel connected, worthwhile, and a part of something vast and grand … the very act of adults spending time simply to be with them, and only with them, will pay off in an experience of fulfillment that’s truly beyond compare.”

Jackson‘s father is Alex Santana, the singer of the Los Angeles-based death metal band BLOOD MONEY, to whom Jane Carrey was married for only a year before the couple split in 2010.

Jim Carrey was rumored to be to be a fan of the death metal band CANNIBAL CORPSE, which made a cameo appearance in Carrey‘s 1994 movie “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective”. However, in a July 10, 2009 posting on BLABBERMOUTH.NET, Santana himself put the rumor to rest, writing, “For the record, Jim hates death metal… He’d never heard of CANNIBAL until doin’ that movie. Trust me, it’s the first thing I asked him when we met.”

DEEP SWELL, the Shepherdstown, West Virginia-based band featuring CLUTCH guitarist Tim Sult, will release its debut album, “Lore Of The Angler”, on on October 15 via CLUTCH‘s record label, Weathermaker Music.

With a powerful female lead vocalist and precise rhythmic force, DEEP SWELL‘s sound is a mix of riff-based rock, funk-tinged psychedelia and mysterious poetic lyrics.

Years of friendship and mutual appreciation for each other’s talents brought Sult into collaboration with drummer Jesse Shultzaberger and bassist Logan Kilmer. Shultzaberger is a versatile drummer who currently tours with the Americana band THE WOODSHEDDERS. Kilmer, who honed his technique and methods with NOETIC PULL, plays five-string with a smooth funky bass style to the depth of which helped spawn the band’s name.

At the beginning of 2012 they met Briena Pearl and invited her to join the trio. Pearl, a lifelong student of voice, theater, and dance, quickly proved the sheer force of her talent as a singer and songwriter, thus establishing an instant chemistry with the band and a clear direction for their emerging sound. With this final addition in place DEEP SWELL‘s dynamic sound was forged.

Sult commented on being a part of DEEP SWELL and the new release: “I’m very excited about working with another group of talented artists and I’m looking forward to introducing the new project to the world.”

In February 2013, DEEP SWELL recorded “Lore Of The Angler” at Magpie Cage Recording Studio in Baltimore, Maryland. Three months later, they were signed to Weathermaker Music, with the label overseeing distribution, touring and publicity for the album starting this fall.

DEEP SWELL has scheduled a handful of dates in supporting of “Lore Of The Angler”, including a CD-release party on October 19 in Shepherdstown at Opera House Live. Following that show, the band will out through October 23, with LIONIZE providing support.

“Lore Of The Angler” track listing:

The Swedish riff lords in Grand Magus have just started to record the follow-up to last year’s “The Hunt.” After finishing up demoing and a pre-production phase, the band entered the recording state at the beginning of September. Grand Magus has once again engaged with Nico Elgstrand as a producer, who already had his hands on the controllers for “The Hunt,” as well as the engineering force of Staffan Karlsson at Studio Sweetspot in Halmstad, who has worked with Arch Enemy and he mixed the most recent record from Spiritual Beggars. Commented drummer Ludwig “Ludde” Witt: “The time has come! Warriors! Things have been quiet around here recently, you know us well enough to know that we haven’t been sitting around idly though..

Having completed a triumphant run on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour, CHIODOS has entered the recording studio this week to begin work on its new album. The band has chosen producer David Bottrill (TOOL, MUSE, STONE SOUR) to helm the new record, which will be tracked at Dreamland Studio in Woodstock, New York.

The new CHIODOS album will be released in 2014 through a newly created band label imprint via Razor & Tie. The CD will feature a re-solidified band lineup comprised of founding members Bradley Bell (keyboards, vocals), Pat Mcmanaman (guitar), Derrick Frost (drums), and Matt Goddard (bass) who reunited with charismatic founding frontman Craig Owens (vocals). The album will also serve as an introduction to the band’s newest member, Thomas Erak (guitar, vocals), formerly of THE FALL OF TROY.

Comments Owens: “We’re excited to be working with Dave Bottrill on this new CHIODOS record. Some of the records he’s done have influenced the band and helped us define what we’ve become. MUSE, TOOL and SILVERCHAIR are all at the top of our list, and it’s amazing to be working with someone that’s already been a part of our history, indirectly. So for the next two months, we’ll be hiding out in the woods of upstate New York, in a hollowed out church-turned-studio, creating what is to be the next chapter of this crazy CHIODOS journey.”

Adds Bell: “One of my favorite aspects of being a musician is the experience that comes along with going into the studio. It’s one of those things you can’t really plan for and just have to let the music and relationships take you down their paths organically. To be able to do this with this group of guys is going to be very exciting, and we get the pleasure of working with David Bottrill to top it off, whom I’ve been a fan of for years.”

States Erak: “I personally am excited to start my journey with the band, in regards to songwriting. This album should give me a new area to peruse in terms of guitar work.”

Earlier this year, Jeremy Spencer of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH gave Drum! magazine an up-close-and-personal look at his time in producer Kevin Churko‘s The Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada recording the band’s new album, “The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 1”. Check out the second and third clips below.

“The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 1” sold 112,000 copies in the U.S. to debut at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart. The record arrived in stores on July 30. The chart and first-week sales numbers are both career highs for the group, whose previous effort, 2011’s “American Capitalist”, sold 91,000 copies in its first seven days to enter the chart at No. 3.

The group’s 2009 sophomore album, “War Is The Answer”, moved 44,000 copies to land at No. 7. All three previous FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH releases have gone gold.

“The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 1” is the first half of a two-record set, with the second half due to arrive on Novemeber 19.

After coming up with 25 songs for the album, the band first envisioned putting them out all together in one double-disc set, before deciding to split the collection into two separate releases.

First single “Lift Me Up” features guest vocals from JUDAS PRIEST frontman Rob Halford. Other guests include IN THIS MOMENT singer Maria Brink, SOULFLY frontman Max Cavalera, HATEBREED vocalist Jamey Jasta and rapper Tech N9ne.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will kick off a headlining North American trek on September 15 at the Aftershock festival in Sacramento, California.

JohngysBeat.com has uploaded video footage of ’80s hard rock queen Lita Ford performing an impromptu version of her hit song “Close My Eyes Forever” with a fan during the most recent Days Of The Dead horror convention, which was held in early July in Indianapolis, Indiana. Check out the clip below.

Lita last year revealed that “Close My Eyes Forever” came about by accident during a night of drinking and getting stoned when she was being managed by Ozzy Osbourne‘s wife, Sharon. She recalled to Metal Underground: “‘Close My Eyes Forever’ was a mistake. It was just me and Ozzy and Sharon hanging about in the recording studio. They showed up one day and had a housewarming present for me: a life-size duplicate of Koko, the gorilla from the San Diego Zoo. It was freaking huge — I had to strap it in the front seat of my jeep to get it home. Ozzy stayed, Sharon got bored and left, and me and Ozzy had a couple of drinks and we were jamming. We started singing, messing about and we wrote ‘Close My Eyes Forever’. Next thing I knew the sun was coming up. I looked at him and went, ‘Uh-oh, we’re in trouble.’ Sharon had been waiting all night. We were a long way from where Ozzy had to go. He said, ‘Can you drive me home?’ I said, ‘No, I can’t.’ We were stoned out of our minds. He got into a cab and I strapped Koko into my jeep and drove home — just barely made it. And then we had this hit song.”

Lita Ford has set “The Bitch Is Back… Live” as the title of her new live album, due on October 28 via SPV/Steamhammer.

Lita‘s latest solo album, “Living Like A Runaway”, was released on June 19, 2012 in North America via SPV/Steamhammer. The effort was made available in four configurations: a double LP, limited-edition CD, standard CD and digital download. The artwork for the album was created by famed rock photographer Mark Weiss.

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.
