In the last 10 years, they’ve been one of the most prolific hard rock acts, especially when it comes to touring and releasing new music Now, Volbeat have set plans in motion to enter the studio by year’s end to begin recording their seventh album for a tentative 2019 release.
The new release will be the band’s follow-up to 2016’s ‘Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie.’ It will mark their first full-length effort to feature bassist Kaspar Boye Larsen. The information about the new album came via an interview last month on the Kilpop Awards in Las Vegas. Shawn SixX of “The Liquid Conversations” spoke with Volbeat guitarist Rob Caggiano. Caggiano said, “We’re doing a bunch of European summer festivals, some that we’re headlining, and then at the end of the year, we’re gonna be recording new stuff. So expect a new album next year at some point. That’s the tentative plan right now.”
‘Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie’ was released in June 2016. The album featured the single “Black Rose,” which landed at No. 1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart. It was the second track from the disc to top the list. The LP’s first single, “The Devil’s Bleeding Crown,” reached No. 1 in May 2016, while the follow-up single, “Seal The Deal,” got as high as No. 3 in December 2016.
The “Black Rose” achievement marked the sixth time in less than five years that Volbeat had had a No. 1 on the Mainstream Rock Songs chart.
