Former ANTHRAX member Rob Caggiano recently spoke to Artisan News about going from his previous gig to producing on the new VOLBEAT album, "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies", to joining the Danish band as their new guitarist. You can watch the report below.
Caggiano replaced guitarist Thomas Bredahl, who was given his walking papers in November 2011.
VOLBEAT has released the video for "Cape Of Our Hero", the first single from "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies". The song has just hit rock radio, while the clip tells the story of a young man who looks back at his youth and remembers his father as the most heroic figure in his life. Frontman Michael Poulsen told The Pulse Of Radio that the song was very personal to him. "I lost my father four, five years ago and I believe that every man in this universe, you know, they have their heroes and most of us are looking at our dad as a big hero," he said. "And so, of course, I'm singing about a little boy who lost his father, and then at the same time he loses his belief in his superheroes."
"Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies" will be released on April 9.
The new disc follows up 2010's "Beyond Hell/Above Heaven", which featured three No. 1 rock radio hits, "A Warrior's Call", "Still Counting" and "Heaven Nor Hell".
VOLBEAT is currently on a spring tour of North America.
