Volbeat Reveals New Album Details

After premiering a short new song entitled, "Parasite" (which can be heard below,) Danish hard rockers Volbeat has revealed that their forthcoming new studio album, entitled "Rewind, Replay, Rebound," will be released on August 2nd of this year. In addition to this, the band has also revealed the artwork for the record, as well as a music video for another new song, "Leviathan," both of which can also be seen below.

Volbeat - Michael Poulsen (guitars/vocals), Rob Caggiano (guitars), Kaspar Boye Larsen (bass), and Jon Larsen (drums) - have built upon their distinct, psychobilly, punk-tinged rock ‘n’ roll sound they are known for, while reaching for new creative summits. "The whole point for us going into the studio, is because you still have something to prove - not just for the fans, but mostly for yourself," says Poulsen. "We would not be able to do this record if it wasn’t for the work we have done in the past. No matter how old the band gets or how many records we do, there is always going to be that signature sound."

Rewind, Replay, Rebound was produced by long-time collaborator Jacob Hansen and co-produced by Rob Caggiano and Michael Poulsen. This marks the first studio album with Kaspar Boye Larsen on bass. To achieve the album’s sound, the band also drew upon a myriad of guests. In addition to again working with backing vocalist Mia Maja on several tracks, they also reunited with the Harlem Gospel Choir. “Cheapside Sloggers” features a ripping guitar solo by Exodus and Slayer guitarist, Gary Holt. Clutch vocalist Neil Fallon is featured on “Die To Live,” the result of touring together and a love for the singer’s gruff and powerful style. Fallon comments, "A few months back, totally out of the blue, I got an email from Michael asking if I’d be interested in singing on a new Volbeat track. I was really surprised and even more so flattered. I gave it a listen and was sold. “Die To Live” is right up my alley because it’s a straight no chaser rock and roller." Raynier Jacob Jacildo (piano) and Doug Corocran (saxophone) of JD McPherson’s band also lend their talents to the song. Ultimately, Volbeat have not lost their passion to create and progress. It’s that which keeps them hungry - and musically honest on the new album.

Today, the band also announces the first leg of the Rewind, Replay, Rebound world tour, with support from Baroness and Danko Jones. This tour will see the band performing in cities including London, Madrid, Berlin, Hamburg, and Stockholm (full dates below) and tickets for all dates will go on sale on Friday, May 24 at 9 AM, BST. Anyone who pre-orders the album from the official Volbeat store will receive a pre-sale code allowing them first access to the 2019 European headline tour (Euro/UK store only) starting at 10 AM, local time on Tuesday, May 21. Members of the Rebels and Angels fan club will also have access to ticket pre-sales at 1 PM, local time. More...

Graspop Metal Meeting 2017: Day Two

After one hell of an opening day and a second night of camping, those attending this year's edition of the Graspop Metal Meeting festival had by now settled into the routine and were ready for another day. Once again, the day promised a mix of legendary names, young blood and cult favourites (or perhaps in the case of one Norwegian act, that should be "kvlt" favourites.)

Following a delay and miscomunication, I was unfortunately unable to catch Axel Rudi Pell and so my second full day at Graspop opened with a trip to Main Stage 2, which was being graced by Devildriver. Though they're not the biggest metal band of recent memory, performing at ten past one in the afternoon was something of a surprise. This did not deter the group from playing with full force and intensity and getting so many rockers' Saturday off to a great start. Frontman Dez Fafara was able to interact very well with the crowd and the high energy the group displayed at the very least impressed those in the audience who are not fans of Devildriver and delighted those who came to see them intentionally.

Baroness Parts With Pete Adams

Baroness’ longtime guitar player, Pete Adams, has amicably left the band, electing to spend less time on the road and focus on a burgeoning non-music business and his home life.

“I would like to say thanks to all of the Baroness fans far and wide and all of the support through the ups and downs along the way,” says Pete. “I feel beyond fortunate to have had the chance to travel great distances with Baroness and to meet so many of you. I honestly never thought I would be able to do what I have done with Baroness. Playing alongside my oldest friends, playing music that isn’t simply readily accepted by the masses, and sharing the stage with some of the best musicians and bands from around the globe. That said, it’s time for me to focus my energy closer to home and not on the road. However, this isn’t the end of my musical career by any means as I plan to continue working with Valkyrie. Again, thank you to all along the way, and most importantly thank you greatly to the current, past and future members of Baroness.”

Band founder John Baizley commented on Pete’s departure: “I need to take a moment, on behalf of myself and Baroness, to recognize and sincerely thank one of my oldest friends and bandmates, Pete Adams, as he moves on from Baroness to pursue a new phase in his life. I feel fortunate beyond words to have shared the stage with you for nearly 25 years, since we were barely teenagers. It would be impossible to articulate the value and impact of the personal history, friendship and musical bond we have enjoyed throughout our lives and within this band. Through Baroness, we’ve seen that friendship grow further and often in unexpected ways; we’ve taken part in so many adventures together that it’s difficult to keep track of them all." More...

Baroness Comments On Grammy Nomination

John Baizley of Baroness just issued this statement regarding the band being nominated for a "Best Metal Performance" Grammy award:

“What a surreal morning it has been. I was wakened at 5 a.m. by a massive influx of messages and emails, after 2 days without sleep, on tour in New Zealand and Australia to find out ‘Shock Me’ has been nominated for a Grammy.

"I’m astounded that this happened, and psyched to see that our friends in Gojira are present on the list as well. It’s been an overwhelming year, touring this record, and I’m extremely proud of my friends/bandmates and the whole Baroness family for the dedication and sacrifice that it took to write, record, and release Purple. Thank you, whoever you are that considered us for the nomination.”

Baroness released "Purple," the band’s fourth album now boasting the Grammy-nominated song “Shock Me,” in December of 2015 via Abraxan Hymns. The band is in the midst of an Australian tour, playing tonight at The Triffid in Brisbane. John Baizley was also recently confirmed as the curator of Roadburn Festival 2017.

December 8 Brisbane, Australia The Triffid
December 9 St. Kilda, Australia The Prince Bandroom
December 10 Meredith, Australia Meredith Music Festival
December 12 Adelaide, Australia The Gov

2017 Grammy Nominees Revealed

It's Grammy Award nomination time again, which is always an odd experience for metal fans. There's only one actual metal category - Best Metal Performance - and no category for actual metal albums to win.

Best Rock Album occasionally has heavy metal releases, but usually only of the most well known bands that aren't representative of the best metal had to offer in any given year.

In a move that literally left the audience scratching their heads, earlier this year Ghost took home the Best Metal Performance for the 2016 Grammy Awards.

Today the nominees are announced for the upcoming 59th annual 2017 Grammy Awards. These songs are now in the running for Best Metal Performance:

- "Shock Me" by Baroness
- "Silvera" by Gojira
- "Rotting In Vain" by Korn
- "Dystopia" by Megadeth
- "The Price Is Wrong" by Periphery

Alright, it's prediction time: who do you think is going to win the 2017 Grammy Best Metal Performance?

Gojira's "Magma" album also managed to land in the Best Rock Album category alongside the likes of Blink-192, Weezer, and Panic! At The Disco.

Baroness Tries To Disappear

Baroness, which recently launched a new round of U.S. tour dates in support of "Purple," today premieres a music video for the song “Try to Disappear.” The clip captures one of the band’s live outings in support of the 10-song album.

“The cathartic experience of playing live music has not changed over the 13 years of performing,” John Baizley said in a recent interview with the SF Weekly. “But the sense of relief and release I feel as an adult is as intense, if not more than, when I was younger. The response to this record has been really, really overwhelming. There have been some pretty dramatic changes in the way that our audiences react to our songs, and I couldn’t be happier about that.”

Baroness recently announced an Australian/New Zealand tour for December, marking the band’s first Oceanian shows since the release of "Purple." More...
