Volbeat have released a video from the studio where they recorded their sixth album.

The Danish band are currently mixing the follow-up to 2013’s Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies with engineer Joe Barresi and in a video issued on their Facebook page, they say the new album is “coming soon.”

The clip features footage of the band in the studio, with frontman Michael Poulsen saying: “We’re in a good spot right now.”

Volbeat have also launched an online competition via which fans can unlock the album artwork and compete to win meet-and-greet tickets.

Volbeat last year split with bassist Anders Kjolholm and have so far not named his replacement. They have a number of tour dates lined up for 2016.
