Volbeat has entered the studio to begin recording its new album for a tentative early 2019 release. Guitarist Rob Caggiano told Loudwire about the follow-up to 2016's Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie, "It's definitely not going to be the same thing as the last record or the record before it. It'll be slightly different. Obviously, we're right smack in the middle of it right now, so it's hard to say, but (it) definitely has a big rock feel to it, which I think is a cool thing."
Frontman Michael Poulsen said on Greek television this past summer that he couldn't say what direction the new LP would take musically, explaining, "You can have certain ideas when you sit down and write your songs, and going through the material that what kind of direction you're going, but at the end of the day, when I write, everything changes every day."
Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie arrived in June 2016 and featured the chart-topping "Black Rose" and "The Devil's Bleeding Crown," in addition to the Top Five title track.
Volbeat released an album and concert film, both titled Let's Boogie! Live From Telia Parken, on December 14th. They documented the band's August 26th, 2017 show at Denmark's Telia Parken, which made Volbeat the first Danish act to headline and sell out that venue.
