Audio interview with Hellyeah frontman
A brand new audio interview with MUDVAYNE/HELLYEAH frontman Chad Gray, conducted last week by Brian Christy of WJXQ Q106 in Lansing, Michigan, has been posted online at www.q106fm.com.
HELLYEAH is the new band featuring former PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott alongside members of MUDVAYNE and NOTHINGFACE. The group’s debut CD is scheduled for release on April 10 via Epic Records.
Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett will tour in support of the HELLYEAH debut in between recording the new MUDVAYNE album. The follow-up to 2004′s blockbuster release, “Lost And Found”, which debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top 200, is due this fall and finds the Grammy-nominated quartet working once again with producer Dave Fortman (EVANESCENCE, SUPERJOINT RITUAL).
“It’s cool to have both MUDVAYNE and HELLYEAH as creative outlets now, even though the approach, subject matter, and attitudes between the two projects are completely different,” says Gray. “I’m looking forward to balancing both bands in my life — my new extremely busy life.”
