Volbeat frontman Michael Poulsen was the guest on Full Metal Jackie’s radio show this past weekend. Poulsen spoke all about the band’s latest album ‘Outlaw Gentleman & Shady Ladies’ and what their new bandmate Rob Caggiano brings to the band both on the record and as a whole. The vocalist also spoke about being influenced by older artists as well as newer musicians. If you missed Full Metal Jackie’s show, check out her interview with Michael Poulsen below:
Danish rockers Volbeat have always been extremely popular in their home country, and with each album they've gained more momentum and fans. However, 2010‘s ‘Beyond Hell/Above Heaven’ was their true breakthrough in North America, spawning hit singles such as ‘Heaven nor Hell’ and ‘A Warrior's Call,’ which both topped the Billboard Active Rock chart.
Volbeat's 'Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies' album arrives next week, but the band has an early treat for their fans. They've made 'Room 24,' their collaboration with famous Mercyful Fate leader King Diamond, available to their fans as a free download.
Guitarist Rob Caggiano's exit from Anthrax has been a confusing one. At first, Caggiano chalked up his departure as wanting to focus primarily as an in-studio producer, specifically with Volbeat, but exactly one month after leaving Anthrax, Caggiano joined Volbeat as a full-time guitarist. The reactions of Anthrax band members have been mixed, but now Caggiano has gone further in-depth as to why he chose to leave the thrash legends.
