According to a posting on VOLBEAT's official web site, the band's debut album, "The Strength, The Sound, The Songs", has become the first Danish heavy rock release in over 10 years to break the national Top 20. The CD, which was originally issued in October 2005, received a new lease on life with the band's recent appearance at the Roskilde festival and the subsequent airing of their video for the DUSTY SPRINGFIELD cover "I Only Wanna Be With You" on MTV's "Headbanger's Ball".

"The Strength, The Sound, The Songs" was released via the Mascot Records subsidiary Rebel Monster Records. The CD was recorded at Hansen studios in Ribe, Denmark and contains re-recorded tracks from the group's two demos, as well as several new songs.
VOLBEAT will enter Hansen studios in Ribe, Denmark on October 17 with producer Jacob Hansen (RAUNCHY, INVOCATOR) to begin recording their second album for an early 2007 release.
As previously reported, VOLBEAT won the "Hope of the Year" award at the Steppeulv awards, which were held on Jan. 28, 2006 in Copenhagen. The awards show is arranged by the Association of Danish Music Critics who hand out prizes to a number of artists who deserve extra attention.
