Hellyeah vocalist Chad Gray told Full Metal Jackie over the weekend that the band would have never put out any new music without late drummer Vinnie Paul. The band’s latest album, Welcome Home, was in production when Paul passed away last year.

Gray said it wasn’t easy to finish working on the album after losing his bandmate and close friend.

“I had six songs left to write after he passed and it was brutally beautiful” and by finishing up the album with Paul’s tracks “it kind of made you feel like he was in your ears and he is in your soul and spirit.”
