VOLBEAT announce today that they will be heading on the road for their new North American tour with Metallica and Avenged Sevenfold. In addition, the band will appear at top festivals including Carolina Rebellion and Rock On The Range.
VOLBEAT will also launch a special Rebels & Angels fan club presale on Wednesday February 15 at 10am EST. General on-sale begins Friday, February 17th at 10am EST. The tour kicks off on May 10th in Baltimore, MD at M&T Stadium, and the full confirmed itinerary can be found below. This marks VOLBEAT’s very first stadium tour with Metallica stateside.
The group is touring in support of their sixth full-length album, Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie [Republic Records]—which claimed #4 on the Billboard Top 200 and made history as “one of the highest Top 200 Album Chart debuts by a Danish artist.” In addition, the album features two songs which hit Top 5 at Active Rock radio “Seal The Deal” and “The Devil’s Bleeding Crown,” which spent over 10 weeks at #1.

On the upcoming tour the band stated, “We’re honored to be invited back out on the road with our friends in Metallica, this time in the United States and with our friends in Avenged Sevenfold. This tour is going to be one for the record books!”
Produced by longtime collaborator Jacob Hansen and co-produced by front man Michael Poulsen and lead guitarist Rob Caggiano, Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie includes a total of 13 new tracks, reflecting their signature hybrid of rock prowess, metal power, blues soul, and rockabilly swing. The full track listing is included below.
VOLBEAT emerged from Copenhagen in 2000. Since then, they’ve tirelessly clawed their way to rock’s upper echelon with endless touring and a string of six 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.
