The new HellYeah is proving to be quite bad ass, even if it’s a different lineup. The tune “Sangre Por Sangre” from the forthcoming album Blood for Blood is definitely an anthem for the anarchist, for the fed up, for anyone needing to vent about all that ails society. Outside of revealing the new music video, which is definitely worth checking out—the band answered the question as to who is taking the place of original guitarist Greg Tribbet and bassist Bob “Zilla” Kakaha.
