HELLYEAH was interviewed over the weekend by the 97.1 The Eagle radio station at this year’s edition of the BFD festival. You can now watch the chat below.
“Band Of Brothers”, the third album from the metal juggernaut known as HELLYEAH, 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.
HELLYEAH‘s sophomore CD, “Stampede”, opened with 28,000 units back in July 2010 to enter the chart at No. 8.
The band’s self-titled debut CD registered a first-week tally of 45,000 units in April 2007 to land at No. 9.
Released on July 17 via HELLYEAH‘s new label home, Eleven Seven Music, “Band Of Brothers” was recorded in Dallas, Texas at drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott‘s home studio, VP’s Upstairs Studio, and was produced by the band and Jeremy Parker (GODSMACK, EVANESCENCE), who also served as engineer.
The band has stated that “Band Of Brothers” is a heavier, more metal-sounding effort that either its self-titled 2007 debut or 2010’s “Stampede”.
