VOLBEAT: 'Lonesome Rider' Video Released

"Lonesome Rider", the new Plastickid-directed video from Danish/American rockers VOLBEAT, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's latest album, "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies", which was re-released in a special "tour edition" on November 4, 2013. The new version of the act's fifth studio album contains new bonus tracks and a live DVD. The latter features footage of the group performing at a number of major summer festivals in Europe, including the Download festival in the U.K., Rock Am Ring and Rock'n'Heim in Germany, Hellfest in France and Denmark's Roskilde Festival.

Speaking about "Lonesome Rider", VOLBEAT frontman Michael Poulsen told Ultimate-Guitar.com, "On that song, we have Sarah Blackwood as a guest singer. She's formerly known as the frontperson in CREEPSHOW, which is a Canadian rockabilly band, and now she's in a band called WALK OFF THE EARTH. We knew her from back when we wanted to bring CREEPSHOW on tour."

He added: "It may sound strange, but I'm not really into white female singers, I think they all sound the same; I'm so much more into black female singers when it comes to vocals.

"I know it sounds ridiculous, and there's going to be a lot of white female singers out there who will think I'm an idiot, but that's just the way I feel.

"But Sarah definitely has her own thing. She did a great job and her signing sounds beautiful on the record."

"Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies" debuted at No. 1 in several countries when it arrived in April 2012, with the disc entering the Billboard album chart at No. 9.

"Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies" has sold 180,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
