Hellyeah was the first time with a new drummer – Roy Mayorga, known from the Stone Sour. Hellyeah played some of the most known pieces from the band’s repertoire and a few songs from the upcoming album.
Roy Mayorga previously collaborated with the Hellyeah’s bass player in Medication, in which he also played Logan Mader (Machine Head) and Whitfield Crane (Ugly Kid Joe)
In June last year, the news about death of Vinnie Paul, went round the world.

Like the last two albums, the new album was recorded in The Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada. The producer of the entire undertaking is Kevin Churko.
