Denmark's VOLBEAT Begin Working On NEW Album With Former ANTHRAX Guitarist Rob Caggiano - Details Available!
Hellyeah! According to Blabbermouth, Denmark's VOLBEAT have locked themselves at a recording studio to lay down tracks for their fifth studio album (set to be released this spring via Spinefarm Records/Universal Music). Titled "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies", the sessions are lead by Rob Caggiano (ex-ANTHRAX), alongside Jacob Hansen, who has a long history with VOLBEAT (he produced and mixed the band's prior four releases). Caggiano's producer credits include CRADLE OF FILTH, THE DAMNED THINGS, BLEEDING THROUGH, and of course ANTHRAX's 'Worship Music'.
"We're back in the studio, this time breaking some of our old habits and this sometimes means leaving our comfort zone", commented Michael Poulsen (VOLBEAT frontman). " We are recording in a new environment, producing with a new setup, breaking new sonic ground and it's exciting! Together with our longtime collaborator Jacob Hansen, we also have the honor of having producer Rob Caggiano on board in the producer's seat. Expect lots of surprises and some of our most rocking heavy songs to date. We feel more than ever that we are taking the VOLBEAT sound to another level without changing what we're all about. Can't wait for it to get out there!"
