GRAMMY Award®-nominated, gold-certified Danish hard rock outfit VOLBEAT storm to the top of multiple charts with their sixth full-length, Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie debuting at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart. This marks not only the band’s highest charting album debut but one of the highest Top 200 Album Chart debuts by a Danish artist (previously held by Lukas Graham) in history. In addition, the quartet captures #1 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums chart and #2 on the Top Album Sales Chart.
Internationally the album has also hit #1 in seven countries and counting. On day of release the album soared to #1 on iTunes in over 15 countries and hit single “The Devil’s Bleeding Crown” has remained #1 at Active Rock Radio for 6 straight weeks! The song also created another record for the band as it had the highest single sales week in the band’s history.
Adding to their news, week VOLBEAT announced a massive North American tour kicking off at Rise Above Festival in Bangor, ME and includes appearances with Metallica and Avenged Sevenfold at the first ever rock show in the brand new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, MN as well as appearances at Heavy MTL in Montreal, High Elevation Fest in Denver, CO and Rock Allegiance Festival in Philadelphia, PA.
Special guests Killswitch Engage and Black Wizard will be supporting the band throughout the tour. The summer of Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie is underway.
Produced by longtime collaborator Jacob Hansen and co-produced by frontman Michael Poulsen and lead guitarist Rob Caggiano, the record includes a total of 13 new tracks, reflecting their signature hybrid of rock prowess, metal power, blues soul, and rockabilly swing. The full tracklisting is included below.
VOLBEAT emerged from Copenhagen in 2000. Since then, they’ve tirelessly clawed their way to hard rock’s upper echelon with endless touring and a string of five beloved full-length albums. Recently, their 2010 album Beyond Hell/Above Heaven received RIAA Gold Certification which features hit singles “A Warrior’s Call” and “Heaven Nor Hell.” 2013’s Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies bowed at #9 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release marking the highest U.S. chart entry for a Danish Act since 1997. It also spawned the GRAMMY Award®-nominated “Room 24” [featuring King Diamond] and was certified Gold in Canada. They’ve been invited to support Metallica on the road worldwide in addition to show-stopping main stage turns at festivals such as Coachella, Download, Rock on the Range, KNOTFEST, and more.
