Volbeat to release 7th studio album, ‘Rewind, Replay, Rebound,’ on Aug. 2

Danish rock band Volbeat will release its seventh studio album “Rewind, Replay, Rebound,” on Aug. 2 via Republic Records. The—Michael Poulsen (guitars/vocals), Rob Caggiano (guitars), Kaspar Boye Larsen (bass) and Jon Larsen (drums)—builds on it distinct, psychobilly, punk-tinged rock ‘n’ roll sound it is 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,” Poulsen said. “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” is available for pre-order on all formats here, including a 2-CD deluxe edition, a special deluxe edition box set, and transparent and blue colored vinyl, numbered and limited to 1,000 copies each.

Volbeat also has shared the music video for “Leviathan.”

At this point in its already storied career, Volbeat has opened for Metallica, Motorhead and Slipknot, garnered a 2014 Best Metal Performance Grammy nomination for “Room 24” and won multiple Danish Music Awards. For this album, the band mines its own personal history and that of its genre: “Last Day Under the Sun” lyrics are inspired by a book about Johnny Cash.

“When I read his book,” Poulsen said, “he went through tough times with alcohol and drugs … He walked into a cave to lay down to die. But he wakes up and feels like he has been given a second chance …”

“When We Were Kids” finds Volbeat ruminating on immortality and innocence we all naively experience in our youth, while “Rewind the Exit” and “Die to Live” each explore how the pursuit of perfection can be a hollow goal.

“Rewind, Replay, Rebound” was produced by longtime 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 myriad guests. In addition to again working with backing vocalist Mia Maja on several tracks, Volbeat also reunited with the Harlem Gospel Choir. 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. Raynier Jacob Jacildo (piano) and Doug Corocran (saxophone) of JD McPherson’s band also lend their talents to the song. “Cheapside Sloggers” features a ripping guitar solo by Exodus and Slayer guitarist Gary Holt.

The band also announce the first leg of the “Rewind, Replay, Rebound” world tour, with support from Baroness and Danko Jones. This tour will find the band performing in cities including London, Madrid, Berlin, Hamburg and Stockholm (full dates below), and tickets for all dates will go on sale here Friday, May 24.

Volbeat previously announced it will join Slipknot on the extensive Knotfest Roadshow North American Tour as special guests, alongside Gojira and Behemoth. The 29-date tour will kick off July 26 in Mountain View, California, with additional stops in Salt Lake City, Phoenix and Austin (full dates below). Tickets for these dates are on sale now here.
