Songfacts®:

  • The title track of Hellyeah's fourth album, this was released as its lead single on March 27, 2014.
  • The song's lyrical content came from a deeply personal place. Hellyeah frontman Chad Gray explained to Noisecreep: "There's such a low regard I think for human existence and human life. I had a rider friend who was murdered and you know, I saw all my circle of friends, the family and so many people are affected by that. We've all experienced the loss of time, and 'Blood for Blood' is just that."
  • The song's music video was directed by Robert Sexton (Soulfly, Death Angel, Cavalera Conspiracy) and filmed in Hollywood, California.
  • Chad Gray collaborated on the album cover artwork with renowned tattoo artist Paul Booth, who has worked on many celebrities and rock bands, including Slayer, Slipknot and Soulfly. Booth said: "The last project that Chad and I worked on together was the Mudvayne blacklight design. I had such a great time working on that art, when Chad called on me to design Hellyeahs Blood For Blood, I jumped right into it as I knew it, too, would likely be a fun one. Chad always gives me the freedom to explore and interpret his ideas. It always makes for great collaboration."
