Volbeat reveals title and release date for new album
Volbeat will release its seventh album, titled Rewind, Replay, Rebound, on August 2nd. The band has released the video for the first single, “Leviathan,” which is available online now. The new disc follows up 2016’s Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie, which featured the chart-topping “Black Rose” and “The Devil’s Bleeding Crown.”

Frontman Michael Poulsen said about the new LP, “The whole point for us going into the studio, is because you still have something to prove — not just for the fans, but mostly for yourself. We would not be able to do this record if it wasn’t for the work we have done in the past. No matter how old the band gets or how many records we do, there is always going to be that signature sound.”
Guitarist Rob Caggiano told us not long ago that Volbeat follows very few rules when it comes to music: “It’s one of the coolest things about this band for me, it’s like there’s no real boundaries, you know, like musical boundaries, so to speak. So it just makes it really fresh and interesting. So yeah, I mean, if you’re asking if there’s like some kind of Volbeat formula, I don’t think that exists (laughs).”
Volbeat will open for Slipknot on the latter band’s summer North American tour, beginning on July 26th in Mountain View, California.
