VOLBEAT: New Album Title Announced

Danish metal rock 'n' rollers VOLBEAT have set "Beyond Hell/Above Heaven" as the title of their fourth studio album, tentatively due in Europe in September. The CD will once again be recorded at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark with producer Jacob Hansen.

Commented guitarist/vocalist Michael Poulsen: "The title refers to the overall theme of the album, and it continues the storyline from where [the last VOLBEAT CD] 'Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood' left off…

VOLBEAT is "very excited about the writing process, carrying the songs into both extreme metallic territory, punk variations and some very catchy stuff at the same time," according to a posting on the band's web site. In addition, fans can expect to hear various guest musicians on the CD.

Added Poulsen: "We have fast, slow and mid-tempo songs. We still blend different styles of punk, rock 'n' roll, rockabilly, metal, heavy metal, thrash metal, country — we still keep it very open, it's just music! I cannot say too much about it right now, but we're really excited about it and it's going to be very, very cool. Again, we're going to give people something they haven't heard before. We always try to do something special and different on each and every album."

"Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood", the third studio album from VOLBEAT, received a U.S. release in March 2009 via Mascot Records. The follow-up to "Rock The Rebel / Metal The Devil" featured 14 tracks, including a SOCIAL DISTORTION cover as a bonus cut on all editions.

"Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood" was certified gold in Denmark for sales in excess of 20,000 copies less than a month after its release. The CD entered the Danish chart at No. 1, and was beaten only by METALLICA's "Death Magnetic" in its second week of release.
