Volbeat Release ‘Seal the Deal’ Lyric Video
Volbeat are closing in one the June 3 release of their sixth studio effort, Seal the Deal & Let's Boogie. With two singles already out, the Danish rockabilly enthusiasts have released their third cut off the record with a lyric video for "Seal the Deal."
One of the most unmistakable rock acts out there today, Volbeat have a winning formula in their uptempo, groove-riding swing, rounded out by the unique vocal charm of frontman Michael Poulsen. "Seal the Deal" carries out these aesthetics with perfect execution, standing as the most infectious song so far with an immediate impact. A snare fill leads everything in and a brief, electrifying solo comes in before the verse, heightening the intensity.
The boogie element of the track is most certainly felt, with head-bobbing, toe-tapping rhythms and a sing-song chorus that dials back the momentum just for a bit. The song brings a slight western vibe, never dipping fully into any country elements, but the atmosphere is felt in some of the vocal inflections. The lyric video carries a different visual aesthetic, showing clips of men in boxing rings, so maybe the band's idea of a good boogie is to knock some gloves.
Volbeat recently named touring bassist Kaspar Boy Larsen as their official permanent bassist. Excited for the opportunity he told Billboard, “Ten years ago I returned from Volbeat’s very first European tour that I joined as a tour session bass player. I was so proud of playing with one of my favorite bands and loaded with great memories of good times but also sad that it was over. A lot of things have happened in the meantime but the songs are as great as ever and I’m super stoked to be joining one of my favorite bands onstage, only this time on a permanent basis. I’m very grateful that the guys thought of me after all these years and I can’t wait to see you all out there.”
