VOLBEAT To Hit The Studio Later This Year

It's coming.


If you were one of those who absolutely loved Volbeat’s last album (I did), you’ll be pleased to know that according to main man Michael Poulsen, the follow-up to Servant Of The Mind is on track for a 2025 release.

Poulsen recently shared a video message, in which he spoke about the songwriting process for the record: "I'm home. I'm dusting off the new Volbeat songs. All the songs have been written for the next album. I'm almost done with the lyrics. Volbeat is gonna enter the studio later this year. There's gonna be a new Volbeat record out next year. We're gonna tour Europe, the U.S. — big tour. So, I can't wait to go out with my Volbeat brothers again and see the Volbeat fans out there."

Last October, Poulsen underwent a significant throat surgery. He mentioned this procedure during an interview with Paltrocast host Darren Paltrowitz. Poulsen explained how Volbeat wouldn’t tour this year, yet he will be able to hit the road with his death metal project Asinhell.

"It's an operation I've been through before. This one is just a little bit bigger and it's gonna take some time to get back in vocal shape. So, Volbeat is not playing in 2024. I'll use a lot of time to get my voice back after the operation. But at the same time, I will actually be writing a new Volbeat album. So hopefully later in 2024, I can put down the vocals for the next Volbeat album. But in the meantime, I will go out and play shows with Asinhell."

When asked if he might need to adjust his singing technique and incorporate vocal warmdowns after performances, Michael commented: "I do warm up before a show, but there's no way I'm gonna use my voice after a show. I'm very optimistic about the whole thing. As I said, I tried before and I got good people around me. I've got a great coach in Melissa Cross who has been helping out a lot of singers. She will help me out again to get my voice back in shape after the operation. So, I like to stay positive, and I'm pretty sure everything's going to be all right."
