HAIL! is planning to release a DVD that will capture the band’s entire history and spotlight all of its live shows and special guests and contain exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from its travels, rehearsals, soundchecks, interviews, meet-and-greets.
In April 2010 it was announced that SLIPKNOT bassist Paul Gray had joined HAIL! He was supposed to replace the group’s original member, David Ellefson, who was unable to take part in HAIL!‘s touring activities due to his renewed collaboration with MEGADETH.
Gray was found dead in an Iowa hotel room in May 2010. He was 38 years old.
