It's been almost 8 years since Hellyeah last hit New Zealand shores in support of their then self-titled debut album and now - three albums later and they're coming back to our shores this week. Consisting of ex-Mudvayne singer Chad Gray, ex-Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul, ex-Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell, bassist Kyle Sanders (ex-Bloodsimple and brother of Mastodon bassist Troy Sanders) and Christian Brady (ex-Überschall) guitar, Mark Derricutt had the opportunity to catch up with Kyle Sanders ahead of their NZ tour.
