Volbeat Announce ‘Seal the Deal & Let’s Boogie’ Album Details, Stream New Song ‘The Devil’s Bleeding Crown’
Volbeat have announced that they will release their sixth full length offering, Seal the Deal & Let's Boogie, on June 3 via Republic Records. The album boasts 13 new tracks of the band's unmistakable sound, produced by Jacob Hansen as well as frontman Michael Poulsen and guitarist Rob Caggiano. The album opener, "The Devil's Bleeding Crown," can be heard above.
Excited for the release, Poulsen exclaimed, “After months writing and recording, we’re thrilled to finally be able to unleash Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie into the world. Play it loud!” The album marks the second to feature former Anthrax axeman Rob Caggiano, who joined the group back in 2013.
"The Devil's Bleeding Crown' kicks off the album with a hefty guitar lick rounded out by a thick yet discernible guitar tone backed by a swinging drum beat. Poulsen's heavy metal Elvis voice once again rings in the familiarity as Volbeat are on their way to another classic track. The ever-present gallop gives a feel of immediacy hinging on slightly above mid-tempo that sees the track ready to free itself from any restraints.
Having already sent fans on a treasure hunt across the Internet in search of clues which ultimately revealed the album's title, the wait is over. After scouring across streaming playlists on Volbeat's various social media channels and their Rebels and Angels forum, fans were able to enter the words on the band's website, which then lead to clues about the cover art (seen above) as well as unlocking the ability to pre-order Seal the Deal & Let's Boogie.
Volbeat will kick off their tour with an intimate show at the Roxy in Los Angeles on April 13, billed as 'An Evening With Volbeat.' The Danish rockers will also be featured at the Coachella festival for the first time, performing on April 15 and 22 amidst their headlining U.S. tour. While the band doesn't have a full-time bassist, Kaspar Boye Larsen will be providing the low end on tour, reprising his 2006 role as a session member.
