Volbeat have announced the 15th Anniversary vinyl reissue of The Strength / The Sound / The Songs will be available on March 5th via Mascot Records. The band is going all out with the release with a glow-in-the-dark pressing and a limited number of unique marble editions available here.
The group is currently working on new material and guitarist Rob Caggiano told Matt Pinfield of “Raise Your Horns” that he’s been super creative during this pandemic.
“Michael’s [Poulsen, Volbeat guitarist/vocalist] been writing a bunch of stuff. I’ve been super busy here [at home] in New York. It’s really all we can do at this point — is just create and write music. There’s not much else going on. So I’ve been super creative; they’ve been super creative… The past couple of months, I’ve just been writing music — just getting ideas out; just my own stuff. Where the stuff ends up, I’m not really sure yet. But yeah, it’s been a lot of fun, just coming up with new ideas.
“Obviously, this whole coronavirus pandemic is a terrible thing, and at this point, it’s gone on way too long. But I think we kind of needed a reset. I’ve been enjoying a lot of family time. It’s nice to not be traveling all over the place for once. I haven’t been idle like this in I don’t even know how long — 25 years, 30 years. It’s kind of crazy. But, yeah, it’s a really great time to be creative and do stuff that we normally wouldn’t have time to do, and things like that.”
