Hellyeah will be returning to the studio in 2016 to record a new album, according to drummer Vinnie Paul.
The band are currently out on tour in Europe and will play a set at next month’s Download festival in the UK.
Speaking in interview with NECR, Paul revealed that the band have plans to continue touring across the world throughout 2015 before beginning work on the follow up to 2014’s Blood For Blood:
“As soon as we get back we do Mayhem all summer with Slayer and the mighty King Diamond, which is going to be an absolutely amazing tour,” he says.
“We go to Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Indonesia, and then we come back and do another run here early next year. Then we start working on a new record.”
And despite the grueling schedule, Paul says the band have no plans to slow up: “We’ve worked very hard from day one. We haven’t slowed down, we haven’t stopped, and we don’t intend on it.
“We’re not 25 years old any more so we don’t have any time to waste. We really enjoy what we’re doing, and luckily, all of us are in great health right now, happy and loving what we’re doing. And the stage is what we live for.”
