Hellyeah in promo for 'odd' track Moth

Hellyeah have released a video for their track Moth – and they admit it's a departure from their previous material.

It was one of the first to be completed for fourth album Blood To Blood, which appeared earlier this year after the band changed their lineup to avoid splitting.

Drummer Vinnie Paul recently told Loudwire of Moth: “When I first played the demo, producer Kevin Churko was like, ‘There’s something really special there.’ It’s really dark, but it’s also beautiful. It was the first song Chad Gray felt drawn to.

“There are so many thinks in like that you know are wrong and you’re going to get burned – but you have to give it a try, whether it’s relationships, jobs, this, that or another. It’s like a moth: it sees that flame and it’s drawn to it. That’s what the song is all about.”

Hellyeah tour the UK following their appearance at this year’s Bloodstock festival at Catton Park, Derbyshire on August 9.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
