Hell Yeah to kick down the doors at Club LA April 29

Hell Yeah will be in Destin supporting their upcoming album “Blood for Blood.”

With their new single “Sangre Por Sangre (Blood For Blood)” in heavy rotation on iTunes and radio waves, Texas-based Hell Yeah is coming to Club LA April 29.

“We are really happy; in one day, 'Blood For Blood' outsold what 'Band of Brothers' did in one week,” Guitarist Tom Maxwell said of the new single. “That’s pretty cool and I think people are really going to be blown away by this new record.”

After about eight years as a band and three albums to their name, Hell Yeah is touring in support of their latest effort, “Blood for Blood,” which is slated for a June 10 release.

Hell Yeah features the hard-hitting, gritty vocals of Mudvayne’s Chad Gray, Maxwell (of Nothingface) on guitar, and the iconic Vinnie Paul, of Pantera, on drums. But don’t let the groups past success fool you or give you a sense of Hell Yeah’s power or sound.

Maxwell described the new record as incredibly “organic,” telling The Log that the album is “the record me and Chad wanted to make when we first met and wanted to put a project together.”

“Sonically, vocally, musically and all around the block, when you put this record on and you listen to it, it’s really going to blow you away,” he said.

If you wanted to sum up Hell Yeah, Maxwell said the new album, front to back, demonstrates who the band is as a whole.  From the track "Hush," which Maxwell describes as a “very homesick song,” to the title track, Maxwell told the Log the album is one that fans will not want to skip a track on.

Hell Yeah is making its second appearance along the Emerald Coast in as many years, as they appeared at last summer’s Blazefest in Niceville.

As for what the crowd can expect, Maxwell said it’s simple — “a bunch of handsome dudes on stage.” Seriously though, he said it will be a show that should blow the covers off the amplifiers.

“There are no tricks to this, we just come out guns blazing and it’s a very high-energy set,” Maxwell said. “It’s just pure and honest.”
