Volbeat are one of the hardest touring bands going, but it's been a little while since they've set foot on the concert stage. Instead, they've been applying their focus to finishing up their next album. But that respite from the road will conclude in April when the band returns for a string of shows.

The band had previously been announced for the two weekends of Coachella in April, but now a string of mostly West Coast shows have been booked around those two stops. The trek kicks off April 13 in Los Angeles at the Roxy and concludes Aug. 26 at the Lodestar Amphitheater in Lubbock, Texas.

For the upcoming dates, Black Stone Cherry and Monster Truck will serve as support. A special pre-sale goes live tomorrow (Feb. 17) at 10AM PT for the band's Rebels + Angels fan club, with general on sales set to start this Friday at 10AM PT. Check here for ticketing details.

“We’re thrilled to be heading back out on the road in the United States this April, and to have the chance to get up close and personal with you at the legendary Roxy Theater in Los Angeles for our first show of 2016," stated the group. "We’re also beyond psyched to be making our first appearances at the amazing Coachella festival and to play some shows with our friends Black Stone Cherry and Monster Truck. This is just the beginning for Volbeat in 2016, more news coming soon!”

As revealed, Volbeat are working on new music. The band is currently putting the finishing touches on their sixth full-length studio album which is expected to arrive later this year. But while we wait for a release date, fans can get excited about the existence of new U.S. tour dates. Check out the itinerary below.
