Volbeat announce ‘special’ European tour


Volbeat have announced a European tour for August and September next year – and frontman Michael Poulsen has promised it’ll be a “special” experience for fans.

The band released sixth album Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie in June, which is the second Volbeat title to feature former Anthrax guitarist Rob Caggiano and the first without bassist Anders Kjolholm.

Poulsen says: “We always aim to continue to grow with each tour. It’s of paramount importance to raise the bar and bring the fans something truly special in gratitude for the support they show.

“Performing a setlist that presents songs we have never performed live, alongside the hits and new creations, will make it special for the audience and ourselves.

“This is going to be a special run – one that all of us look forward to bringing to life.”

Poulsen recently reflected on his early days as a member of metal band Dominus, and argued that he modern way of promoting music “doesn’t have a soul.”
