Volbeat Debut Two New Volbangers
And now, we bring you a very Volbig Volbulletin sure to send Volbeat fans into a state of Volbliss.
Has Volbeat Volbuted a new Volbanger?
Has Volbeat Volbuted TWO new Volbangers?
So now you’ve got some fresh material to which you can Volbeat-off.
The new Volbeuphonies are called “Dagen Før,” which is Norwegian for “The Day Before,” and “Wait a Minute My Girl,” which is English for “Vent litt Min jente.” They were written and recorded during the lockdown, with Michael Poulsen (Volcals, rhythm guitar), Kaspar Boye Larsen (Volbass), and Jon Larsen (Volbeats) tracking their parts with longtime producer Jacob Hansen in Denmark, while Rob Caggiano (Volead guitar) worked remotely from New York (remember that Caggiano has previously produced bands like Anthrax, Cradle of Filth, and Bleeding Through).
Additionally, “Wait a Minute My Girl” Volbears the work of saxophone player Doug Corcoran and piano player Raynier Jacob Jacildo, who Volboth previously appeared with Volbeat on 2019’s “Die to Live (feat. Neil Fallon).” Volcalist Mia Maja, who has worked with the band since Seal the Deal & Let’s Boogie, also appears on backing Volcals.
“Dagen Før” features guest Volcals from Danish artist Stine Bramsen, who is known for her solo work as well as being a member of the band Alphabeat (I didn’t add that “beat,” that’s really what they’re called). Like vintage Volbangers “The Garden’s Tale,” “Maybele I Hofteholder” and “For Evigt,” “Dagen Før” has both English and Danish lyrics. It’s also the first commercially-released song that features Stine Volcalizing in her native Danish.
Volbeatifically Voices Volbeat:
“As the weather begins to warm and the days get longer in many parts of the world, we wanted to share two songs that we wrote and recorded over these long, difficult fifteen months that have the vibe and feel of Summer. We’re beyond thankful that even during a lockdown our good friends Doug, Ray and Mia Maja were able to put the pedal to the metal with us on ‘Wait a Minute My Girl,’ and we’re absolutely thrilled that Stine Bramsen, who we’ve known and admired for a long time, was willing to lend her incredible talents to ‘Dagen Før.’ We hope you enjoy this double-barreled blast of Summer tunes as much as we enjoyed creating them, and we can’t wait for you to hear what else we have in store for you. The Fall always brings the thunder and lightning…”
