The group's latest album, 2010's "Beyond Hell / Above Heaven," didn't chart in the U.S., but rose to the top of the charts in Finland, Sweden and Denmark.

Hellyeah's third album, "Band of Brothers," is due out July 17. The set was recorded at drummer Vinnie Paul's home studio in Dallas. The album's first single, "War in Me," can be heard at this link.
