I don’t get why Danish rock and roll outfit Volbeat are so awesome, or why so many metalheads dig them. The band’s appeal alludes me like the mythic Loch Ness Monster.
But my college roommate Joe loves ‘em, so I write up news on them to keep him in the know. And you, if you dig Volbeat.
The band has begun tracking its fifth album for a spring release on Spinefarm Records/Universal Music.
The album will be called Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies, and the album is being produced by former Anthrax guitarist Rob Caggiano, with Jacob Hansen.
“We’re back in the studio, this time breaking some of our old habits and this sometimes means leaving our comfort zone,” says frontman Michael Poulsen.
“We are recording in a new environment, producing with a new setup, breaking new sonic ground and it’s exciting! Together with our longtime collaborator Jacob Hansen, we also have the honor of having producer Rob Caggiano on board in the producer’s seat.”
The singer says fans can “expect lots of surprises and some of our most rocking heavy songs to date. We feel more than ever that we are taking the Volbeat sound to another level without changing what we’re all about. Can’t wait for it to get out there!”
