Danish metal rock 'n' rollers VOLBEAT have entered the studio to begin recording their fifth album for a spring release via on Spinefarm Records/Universal Music.


The album is set to be titled 'Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies'.


The sessions are being helmed by former Anthrax guitarist Rob Caggiano, alongside Jacob Hansen, who has a long history with Volbeat, having produced and mixed the band's prior four releases. Caggiano's producer credits include Cradle of Filth, Bleeding Through and The Damned Things, among others.


Volbeat's Michael Poulsen:


"We're back in the studio, this time breaking some of our old habits and this sometimes means leaving our comfort zone. We are recording in a new environment, producing with a new setup, breaking new sonic ground and it's exciting! Together with our longtime collaborator Jacob Hansen, we also have the honor of having producer Rob Caggiano on board in the producer's seat. Expect lots of surprises and some of our most rocking heavy songs to date. We feel more than ever that we are taking the Volbeat sound to another level without changing what we're all about. Can't wait for it to get out there!"


Volbeat will start a North American headline tour, with support from DANKO JONES, in early March.
