Recently during a conversation with Avenged Sevenfold bassist Johnny Christ – as part of his web show 'Drinks With Johnny' – HELLYEAH (and Mudvayne) singer Chad Gray spoke to the band having unreleased material that features the late Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul. 

"When we lost Vinnie, I was just thinking about, 'We have to do the same thing that we did for Dime for Vinnie now. We have to keep going to keep carrying the flag for Vince.' It's been tough. And I've talked to Tom [Maxwell, HELLYEAH guitarist] a little bit, I've talked to members, and we've talked about… writing some music. We don't know what the touring plans would be ever— maybe ever again—but we could still release music. I think there are, like, two or three songs that Vinnie [Paul, late Pantera drummer] actually tracked drums to that we didn't end up [finishing] for whatever reason. So, there is a potential for us to write maybe a couple of more songs with Vinnie's drums added on." - Chad Gray

The late Pantera drummer helped to create six studio albums with HELLYEAH. In 2019, HELLYEAH released the album 'Welcome Home', which features Paul's final drum recordings. The band toured behind the record with Stone Sour's Roy Mayorga on drums. HELLYEAH is currently on hiatus. Gray, meanwhile, has since reunited with his band Mudvayne.
