About a month ago, Volbeat lead guitarist Rob Caggiano told us, “Next year is gonna be very light, I think, for Volbeat, as far as touring. There’s gonna be some stuff here and there, but overall, it’s gonna be kind of some chill time, creative time.” (Read the interview here.) Apparently, “very light” includes more than a month of tour dates in the United States and Canada with Caggiano’s former band, Anthrax, in support, along with openers Crobot. There never appeared to be any bad blood between Caggiano and Anthrax, and if Anthrax members Scott Ian, Charlie Benante and Frank Bello joining Volbeat onstage earlier this year at Carolina Rebellion didn’t confirm that, this tour announcement certainly does. The full press release and the initial tour dates are below. (more…)

Rock is dead? Someone forgot to tell Volbeat. The three-fourths Danish band has ridden a string of hit singles from its 2010 album, Beyond Hell/Above Heaven, and its latest release, last year’s Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies, to its biggest U.S. tour to date, a co-headlining arena run with Five Finger Death Punch (with support from Hellyeah and Nothing More). Lead guitarist Rob Caggiano (the one-quarter of the band hailing from New York) never expected to end up in Volbeat when he left Anthrax about two years ago. But he quickly went from producing the newest album to becoming a full-fledged band member. And he couldn’t be happier about it. When the tour rolled into the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Md., Caggiano sat down for a chat with Live Metal’s Greg Maki. (more…)

The Volbeat frontman talks touring, Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies and more

2013 has been the year of Volbeat in America. Songs such as “Still Counting” and “Heaven nor Hell” still were burning up the airwaves years after their initial release even as the band’s fifth studio album, Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies, hit stores in April. A heavy touring schedule, including prominent billing on many of the biggest festivals, solidified their place in the top tier of hard rock/metal bands here. Late summer/early fall saw them headlining perhaps their biggest U.S. tour yet, Rock Allegiance, with support from HIM, All That Remains and Airbourne. As the trek neared its end and came to the Mann Center for the Performing Arts Center in Philadelphia, Pa., Live Metal’s Greg Maki sat down backstage with vocalist/guitarist Michael Poulsen to get the latest on Volbeat.
