"Cowboy Way" will appear on HELLYEAH's sophomore album, "Stampede", due out July 13.
HELLYEAH filmed videos for two new songs, "Hell Of A Time" and "Cowboy Way", this past Sunday, April 18 at the Longhorn Saloon in Fort Worth, Texas.
HELLYEAH features musicians from various other groups, including Vinnie Paul Abbott, who played with PANTERA and DAMAGEPLAN, as well as vocalist Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett of MUDVAYNE, DAMAGEPLAN bassist Bob "Zilla" Kakaha and NOTHINGFACE axeman Tom Maxwell.
"Stampede" was recorded at Abbott's home in Arlington, Texas, where he has a studio set up. He told The Pulse of Radio that the guys all got started on the album in May 2009. "We worked for two weeks," he said. "I think we wrote five songs the first two weeks that we were together. And then MUDVAYNE went and did another summertime tour. And then we had a small session in the middle and got back together and really got to the meat of it in October. And then Chad and Greg were in quite a bit during January and February to finish it up."
Vinnie Paul Abbott has confirmed that HELLYEAH will take part in a "big end-of-the-summer tour" in North America — rumored to be the the Uproar 2010 trek, also featuring DISTURBED, AVENGED SEVENFOLD and STONE SOUR. Other acts that are being talked about as possibly taking part in the tour include LACUNA COIL and HALESTORM.
The group's self-titled debut has sold more than 350,000 copies since coming out in April 2007.
