Due to unknown reasons deemed as "necessary," Hellyeah have parted ways with guitarist Greg Tribbett and bassist Bob "Zilla" Kakaha.
As Blabbermouth reports, Kyle Sanders was already confirmed as the replacement bassist, while the band only responded with a vague Facebook comment stressing that fans shouldn't make any assumptions.
"Things happen for necessary reasons," the post reads. "It's so easy for people to assume or makeup reasons for things. Don't assume anything! The reasons for this parting of ways was for the better good. When you hear the new record you'll understand."
The group didn't make it clear whether they'll be in search for the new guitarist or simply venture forth as a four-piece. Plenty of new album details were unveiled though, confirming "Blood for Blood" as the title of the upcoming fourth record.
Furthermore, June 10 was pinpointed as a release date through Eleven Seven Music. Recorded at the Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, the album features Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment) handling the production duties. Check out the full track listing below.
