VOLBEAT reveal the details for their anxiously awaited sixth full-length album, Seal the Deal & Let’s Boogie available June 3 rd . Multi plantinum selling Danish hard rock outfit uncorks the first single The Devil’s Bleeding Crown and announces the pre-order for the album today. Fans who pre-order the album will receive an instant download of the first single.
The Devil’s Bleeding Crown pairs a galloping guitar riff with propulsive thrashed-out grooves. The band performed it only once in entirety last summer in Odense,Denmark and had fans waiting for more. The track quickly builds into an anthemic refrain meant to be chanted at festivals worldwide. It’s classic VOLBEAT through and through.
Earlier this week the band teased album details to their dedicated fans by creating an online treasure hunt. Clues for the album title were left in streaming playlists,listed on their social media channels, and in the Rebels & Angels community forum.
Once fans uncovered the words from the album title, they entered those words on the Volbeat website to reveal the characters from the album cover art which also unlocked the album pre-order. They also unveiled a video teaser for the album.
Produced by longtime collaborator Jacob Hansen and co-produced by frontman Michael Poulsen and lead guitarist Rob Caggiano, the record includes a total of 13 new tracks, reflecting their signature hybrid of rock prowess, metal power, blues soul, and rockabilly swing. On the new album lead singer Michael Poulsen says “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!”
