Two songs from the brand new  HELLYEAH  album are streaming live now. From  Blood for Blood  -- which hits retail and digital outlets in June -- fans can hear the title track and "Cross to Bier (Cradle of Bones)" on the band's  YouTube channel

The new album is the fourth for HELLYEAH, and the first without  Greg Tribbett  and  Bob Zilla . Zilla's bass duties have been assumed by  Bloodsimple 's  Kyle Sanders . The identity of HELLYEAH's new guitarist hasn't yet been revealed.

Fans will immediately notice that  Blood for Blood  is the heaviest of HELLYEAH's albums. Drummer  Vinnie Paul  tells ABC News Radio that this album in many ways represents the band's first serious metal offering. "We looked to expand on where we came from on the last record," he explains. "[On  Band of Brothers ], we felt we got back to our metal roots and really got back to doing what people expected from this band from the start. Whereas the first two records were really almost experimental." 

Paul also tells ABC News Radio he's quite proud of  Blood for Blood . "With this record, I feel like it's an extension of the last record but with much better songwriting, much better production all the way around. [I] just really feel like we made our version of  Back in Black  -- the album people are gonna recognize HELLYEAH for, for a long time."  

Blood for Blood  hits retail and digital outlets on June 10.
