VOLBEAT To Enter Studio This Month

Danish metallers VOLBEAT will enter the Jacob Hansen studio in Ribe, Denmark on March 31 to begin recording their third album, due late summer via Holland's Mascot Records.

Commented VOLBEAT frontman Michael Poulsen: "We are really looking forward to enter the studio again and work with producer Jacob Hansen. We have 14 new songs, one is a cover song from SOCIAL DISTORTION which will be on the Danish limited version. There will be other surprises on the CD, which we will reveal later. Many of the songs are linked together in a kind of concept, which also ties to the album title, but more about that later. We have worked very hard and [stayed] focused to find the right 14 tracks out of 28 songs. The CD will be released early September 2008."

VOLBEAT's chart-breaking (in Denmark) second album, "Rock The Rebel / Metal The Devil", will be released in the U.S. on June 10. The LP was certified platinum in Denmark for sales in excess of 30,000 copies. According to the band, this marks the first time a Danish metal album has sold platinum in Denmark.
