Volbeat has been splitting their time between the road and studio this past year. And since they keep adding onto their tour plans, it seemed like only a matter of time till we heard the group’s follow up to 2013’s Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies. Now it’s confirmed that the album, titled Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie, will come out on June 3.
The band revealed the album’s title and cover artwork (as seen above) via an online “Unveil the Artwork” competition, where fans could win the chance to meet the band at their June 7th show in Berlin, Germany. Volbeat has also offered a proper taste of new music with “The Devil’s Bleeding Crown”, which they already had been performing live since year. The single was serviced to radio stations nationwide earlier today, but can now be heard in the player below. And if you like Volbeat, you’ll definitely like “The Devil’s Bleeding Crown.”
Volbeat has also announced who will be taking over bass duties for ex-member Anders Kjølholm during upcoming shows. That job will go to Kaspar Boye Larsen, who actually previously helped out Volbeat during their first European Tour back in 2006. Larsen has also previously played in bands like The Hitchcocks and The Kandidate.
