Volbeat Postpone Spring Tour

Volbeat have postponed their spring U.S. tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The trek is now expected to take place in September/October.

The band commented:

“Rebels and Angels! We hope you are all staying safe and healthy!

As we are all aware, COVID-19 has forced all of us to make a lot of changes in the last couple of weeks, both at home here in Denmark, in the United States and all over the world. With the safety of our fans, crew and family in mind, the US leg of the Rewind, Replay, Rebound World Tour will be postponed to September and October.

We are still in the process of finalizing dates and details and hope to have all of the info ready to share this coming Friday.

In the meantime please stay safe, watch out for each other (while keeping at a safe recommended distance), and we cannot wait to see you this Fall!”

Volbeat Cancel Finland Show Due To Labor Strikes

Volbeat have been forced to cancel their November 27 show in Helsinki, Finland. The cancellation was related to the ongoing labor strikes in the country.

The band commented:

“Hello Finland! Due to the current country-wide labor strikes, we will unfortunately have to cancel our show at Hartwall Arena this Wednesday, November 27th. Many of the people and services that we depend on to get the bands, touring crew and gear safely to and from Helsinki will be on strike and it will be impossible for us to arrive in your beautiful city in time for the show. Please contact your point of purchase for a full refund.

Please know that we hope for these strikes to have a positive outcome, and we are already planning our next trip to come play for all of you amazing fans (announcements to be made soon). In the meantime, please keep rocking, have a great holiday season and we will see you in the new year!”

Volbeat Premiere New Video For “Die To Live” Feat. Clutch’s Neil Fallon

Volbeat have premiered a new video for their song “Die To Live.” This track and its accompanying video both feature Clutch’s Neil Fallon, as well as Raynier Jacob Jacildo and Doug Corcoran of JD McPherson’s band. The song appears on Volbeat’s latest album “Rewind, Replay, Rebound.”

Michael Poulsen commented:

“We were thrilled to be able to get Neil, Raynier and Doug together with us in the same room to shoot this video, and we’re really proud of how it came out. We hope you have as much fun watching it as we did making it!”

Fallon added:

“A couple of months ago, I flew up to Boston to meet up with Volbeat to film the video for their new single, ‘Die To Live’. It was a breeze to make, maybe four hours. It’s a catchy straight-ahead rocker of a song and I am flattered to have been asked to participate.”

Volbeat Stop Belfast Show After One Song

During Volbeat’s show in Belfast, Ireland last night (October 3), the band only played one song before walking offstage. The group started things off with a performance of “Pelvis On Fire,” before cutting things short and reportedly trying again about 10 minutes later. However, they stopped again and ultimately cancelled the concert. A number of fans voiced their frustration on social media:

The band have since issued the following statement:

“We in Volbeat want to extend our most heartfelt apologies for having to cancel tonight’s show in Belfast. As many of you know, Michael has been having some throat issues and we ran into multiple technical issues on stage that prevented the band from being able to hear each other play. While he has mostly recovered his voice at this point, it was decided that had he continued to play the show this way he would have risked blowing out his voice again and having to cancel even more shows. We’re gutted that we weren’t able to perform for you tonight, but we will be back to reschedule the show as soon as we possibly can.”

Clutch’s Neil Fallon Guests On New Volbeat Song “Die To Live”

Volbeat officially released their new album “Rewind, Replay, Rebound” today (August 2) and one track on the effort, “Die To Live,” features Clutch’s Neil Fallon. You can stream that below. Fallon commented:

“A few months back I got an email from Michael Poulsen. He asked if I’d be interested in singing on a Volbeat track called “Die to Live.” The track is guns out rock and roll. I’m flattered that Michael asked me to do it and maybe we’ll get the chance to do it live one day!”
