Volbeat announce new album ‘Servant of the Mind’

Danish rock and metal favorites Volbeat have announced their eighth studio album by the title of ‘Servant of the Mind,’ which is scheduled to be released on December 3rd through Republic Records (pre-order). For a first taste of the impending full-length, the band have released fresh single “Shotgun Blues,” which you can stream below in official lyric video form.

A presser says, “For Servant of the Mind, the band, which consists of Michael Poulsen (guitars/vocals), Jon Larsen (drums), Rob Caggiano (guitars) and Kaspar Boye Larsen (bass) took their signature heavy metal, psychobilly and punk ‘n’ roll sound up a notch while showcasing Poulsen’s keen ability for songwriting and storytelling.”

I wrote the whole album in three months,” comments Poulsen, “I was in a good place and mood while at home, and had a captive audience of myself… There are a lot of Volbeat signatures in it. If you go back to the first record and compare it to where we are now, you can hear how the band has developed its style, while keeping the signature sound.”

Every time you move into a house, you bring dead people with you,” explains Poulsen regarding the new single, “Shotgun Blues.” “Weird stuff happens when I move into a [new] house… it’s very otherworldly.”
