Sorry San Antonio, Chad made it very clear that Spokane is his favorite city to play. But he did say that you guys were in the running for a long time. So you can fuckin bet Ill be seeing the Hellyeah boys in San Antonio in the future! That being said, if you’ve never seen them in Spokane, you should make it happen. I can attest to the awesomeness of these shows because Ive been to em all!
As far as this show goes, let me just start by saying that THIS IS THE SHOW IVE BEEN WAITING FOR! Hellyeah havent always been the easiest pill to swallow. But they keep coming around and I keep showing up to support them. Ive always had a good time and been proud of what they’re doin but lately its starting to feel like home again. With new additions to the band things are really falling into place. The energy on stage was undeniable. The riffs are heavy and I can feel the bass in my soul… and that Mudvayne scream! COME ON! So Im definitely digging the live show!
Backing that shit up is their new record, Blood For Blood! Im ashamed to say I had not given it a shot prior to the show… but it rules! I almost wish I had heard it before but maybe I wouldn’t have felt it the same way I am feeling it now. Connecting to it in person, organically, strait from the musicians in front of me… Fucking LIVE music!
They’re raising the bar! Thats even a lyric on the album, and its no joke. Chads back and he’s got some of the best players backing him! So lets just say I cannot fucking wait for the next record. All 5 guys in the studio together. I have a feeling its gonna be sooner than later!
Its very rare that Im so stoked on a set list that is loaded with new songs! It also didn’t hurt that most the other songs were from their debut album. Highlights of the night for me were Cross To Bier, DMF, Demons In The Dirt, and BLood For Blood! All new songs! Im fuckin tellin you!!! This shit jams. I need another fix!
