VOLBEAT Frontman Performs With ELVIS PRESLEY's Backing Musicians: Photos Available

VOLBEAT frontman Michael Poulsen performed with some of the musicians ELVIS PRESLEY used in the studio and in concert during the '50s and the '70s on Saturday, April 22 at Amager Bio in Copenhagen, Denmark. Pictures from the gig — which featured Poulsen alongside Jerry Carrigan (drums), Richie Young (guitar) and Bob Moore (bass) — can be found at www.jacobdinesen.net.

Commented Poulsen: "This was the greatest moment in my life. I still can't believe it."

As previously reported, 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.

VOLBEAT recently finished shooting their first video for the cover track "I Only Wanna Be With You" (originally recorded by DUSTY SPRINGFIELD). The song comes off "The Strength, The Sound, The Songs", which was released in September 2005 via the Mascot Records subsidiary Rebel Monster Records. The CD was recorded at Hansen studios and contains re-recorded tracks from the group's two demos, as well as several new songs.

VOLBEAT won the "Hope of the Year" award at the Steppeulv awards, which were held on Jan. 28 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. In addition to the honor, publicity and the prestigious figurine, VOLBEAT will also get to play at this year's Roskilde Festival, set to take place June 29 – July 2 in Roskilde, Denmark.
