The Skinny: Chad Gray, lead singer of the Eleven Seven Music heavy metal band, Hellyeah, is no stranger to travel. He’s fronted bands that have played the world over dozens of times and as such he’s amassed his share of crazy touring tales. While tearing things up as part of this year’s Rockstar Mayhem Festival, we spoke with Gray on July 15, 2015 at Toronto, ON’s TD Echo Beach. Episode 8 of Tales of Touring Terror (#ToTT) is called “Pacific Grim” and well, it’s pretty gnarly!


Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
