VOLBEAT announce new album & tour, debut new single & video



Multi-platinum, Danish rock band VOLBEAT confirm their return with their seventh album ‘Rewind, Replay, Rebound’, set for release via Vertigo Records on August 2nd.

VOLBEAT – Michael Poulsen (guitars/vocals), Rob Caggiano (guitars), Kaspar Boye Larsen (bass), and Jon Larsen (drums) – have built upon their distinct, psychobilly, punk-tinged rock ‘n’ roll sound they are known for, while reaching for new creative summits. “The whole point for us going into the studio, is because you still have something to prove – not just for the fans, but mostly for yourself,” says Poulsen. “We would not be able to do this record if it wasn’t for the work we have done in the past. No matter how old the band gets or how many records we do, there is always going to be that signature sound.”

‘Rewind, Replay, Rebound’ is available for pre-order on all formats here, including a 2CD deluxe edition, a special deluxe edition box set, and transparent and blue coloured vinyl limited to 1000 copies each.

Today, VOLBEAT also shares the music video for new song “Leviathan”. Watch it at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siIaaBIVbZE and get the song at: https://umg.lnk.to/Leviathan.

At this point in their already storied career, VOLBEAT has opened for Metallica, Motorhead, and Slipknot, garnered the 2014 Best Metal Performance Grammy nomination for “Room 24” and won multiple Danish Music Awards. For this album, they mine their own personal histories and that of their genre: “Last Day Under The Sun” lyrics are inspired by a book about Johnny Cash. Poulsen admits, “When I read his book, he went through tough times with alcohol and drugs… He walked into a cave to lay down to die. But he wakes up and feels like he has been given a second chance…” The song “When We Were Kids” finds VOLBEAT ruminating on immortality and innocence we naively experience in our youth, while “Rewind The Exit” and “Die To Live” both explore how the pursuit of perfection can be a hollow goal.

Rewind, Replay, Rebound was produced by long-time collaborator Jacob Hansen and co-produced by Rob Caggiano and Michael Poulsen. This marks the first studio album with Kaspar Boye Larsen on bass. To achieve the album’s sound, the band also drew upon a myriad of guests. In addition to again working with backing vocalist Mia Maja on several tracks, they also reunited with the Harlem Gospel Choir. “Cheapside Sloggers” features a ripping guitar solo by Exodus and Slayer guitarist, Gary Holt. Clutch vocalist Neil Fallon is featured on “Die To Live,” the result of touring together and a love for the singer’s gruff and powerful style. Fallon comments, “A few months back, totally out of the blue, I got an email from Michael asking if I’d be interested in singing on a new Volbeat track. I was really surprised and even more so flattered. I gave it a listen and was sold. “Die To Live” is right up my alley because it’s a straight no chaser rock and roller.”  Raynier Jacob Jacildo (piano) and Doug Corocran (saxophone) of JD McPherson’s band also lend their talents to the song. Ultimately, VOLBEAT have not lost their passion to create and progress. It’s that which keeps them hungry – and musically honest on the new album.

Today, the band also announces the first leg of the “Rewind, Replay, Rebound” world tour, with support from Baroness & Danko Jones. This tour will see the band performing in cities including London, Madrid, Berlin, Hamburg, and Stockholm (full dates below) and tickets for all dates will go on sale here on Friday, May 24th at 9AM BST. Anyone who pre-orders the album from the official Volbeat store will receive a pre-sale code allowing them first access to the 2019 European headline tour (Euro/UK store only) starting at 10AM local time on Tuesday, May 21st. Members of the Rebels and Angels fan club will also have access to ticket pre-sales at 1PM local time.

The band have previously announced that they will join Slipknot on their extensiveKnotfest Roadshow North American Tour as special guests, alongside Gojira and Behemoth. That 29-date tour will kick off July 26th (full dates below). Tickets for these dates are on sale now here.

VOLBEAT emerged from Copenhagen in 2001. Since then, they’ve tirelessly clawed their way to hard rock’s upper echelon with endless touring and six beloved albums. Their last studio album Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie debuted at #1 in seven countries including Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Belgium, Austria, and Switzerland. In Canada and Norway, the album entered the charts at #2, in the USA at #4 and in the UK at #16. Most recently the band released Let’s Boogie! Live At Telia Parken, a concert film and album documenting their landmark 2017 Copenhagen show in front of 48,250 fans, the largest show a Danish band has ever performed in Denmark.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
