OTEP and BLOODSIMPLE — who both have new albums coming out on October 30 — join Balls Volume Strength that date in Detroit and continue with HELLYEAH through the end of the tour.

In other news, HELLYEAH has announced the results of an ongoing partnership with Eventful, Inc., the leading global events web site, in helping to identify tour markets for the band's upcoming headline run. HELLYEAH gave the power to their fans to determine which cities to include in the tour by using Eventful, Inc.'s Demand service. Eventful Demand is a viral online service that gives fans the ability to influence where their favorite artists perform by participating in grass-roots campaigns distributed across various social networking sites, including MySpace, MyYearbook and Facebook. Over 50,000 fans have "Demanded" for HELLYEAH, OTEP and BLOODSIMPLE to come to their cities. The bands and their agent used the Eventful data of where they are in Demand to route the Balls Volume Strength tour.

"HELLYEAH has an amazing following of loyal fans who crave to see them perform live." said Jordan Glazier, Eventful's CEO. "We're excited to see HELLYEAH use Eventful Demand to give the power to their fans to create a user-generated tour."

In addition, HELLYEAH fans at SodaHead.com voted Balls Volume Strength as their top choice for the tour name.

HELLYEAH is the new band featuring members of MUDVAYNE, PANTERA and NOTHINGFACE. The group is currently touring in support of its self-titled debut album, which has sold 184,000 copies in the United States since its April 10 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
