Rob Caggiano Says Volbeat Have Been “Writing A Bunch” For Their Next Album

During an interview with Belfast Metal, Rob Caggiano talked a bit about Volbeat’s new album plans. He said the following: “We’ve been working, actually, on some ideas. We’ve been writing a bunch, actually. So, yeah, we’re planning on going into the studio at some point at the end of this year.” He went on to say the band are “constantly coming up with ideas” for new songs. He also added:

“There’s no real set formula or time frame, really. When you’re in a band and you’re doing this for as many years as we’ve been doing it, the cycles kind of reveal themselves, I think. We all know when it’s time to start working on stuff and thinking about the next album and all that stuff. So it all kind of just happens naturally.”

Volbeat Tentatively Planning To Release A New Album In 2019

Volbeat are planning to hit the studio before the year’s end to begin recording a new album for a tentative 2019 release. Rob Caggiano told “The Liquid Conversations” host Shawn SixX the following at last month’s Kilpop Awards in Las Vegas:

“The immediate thing that we’re doing, in about a week and a half, is we’re going down to South America. Then we’re gonna do a bunch of European summer festivals — we’re headlining a bunch of festivals. And at the end of the year, we’re gonna be recording new stuff. So expect a new album next year at some point. That’s the tentative plan right now.”

Volbeat To Release 15 Años Rum

Last year, Volbeat released 23 Años rum, and now the band will be returning with a new 15 Años batch. Unfortunately, it is only available in Europe, but if you do happen to live overseas you can preorder it HERE (Denmark customers go HERE). You can read a description of the beverage below:

The Volbeat 15 Años is a blend of the finest Caribbean rums for the outlaw gentlemen and shady ladies. Rums from Guyana and Dominican Republic form the foundation, like the bass and drums. Jamaican pot still rums add a bit of shimmy while Trinidad lays down the harmonies. Barbados rocks the lead guitar while Trinidad delivers the high notes. The Volbeat 15 Años kicks ass beyond hell/above heaven with rich notes of wood, caramel and dried fruits and seals the deal with a long, groovy finish.
