Danish multiplatinum rock group VOLBEAT released the video for “Die To Live (feat. Neil Fallon)” in November, directed by Adam Rothlein for Ghost Atomic Pictures and shot at the Futura Studio in Roslindale, MA. The song and the video see the participation of the Clutch singer Neil Fallon, as well as Raynier Jacob Jacildo and Doug Corcoran of the JD McPherson band.
Last year the band released their seventh studio album Rewind, Replay, Rebound. In making this record, VOLBEAT – Michael Poulsen (guitar / voice), Rob Caggiano (guitar), Kaspar Boye Larsen (bass) and Jon Larsen (drums) – started with their distinctive rock’n’roll, psychobilly, punk sound for who are well known, looking for new creative heights.
The key point for us when we enter the studio is to still have something to prove, not only to the fans, but above all to ourselves. We wouldn’t have been able to make this record if it weren’t for the work we’ve done in the past. No matter how old the band is or how many records we made, there will always be that characteristic sound.Michael Poulsen
At this point in their already solid career, VOLBEAT opened for Metallica, Motörhead and Slipknot, got a 2014 Grammy nomination for the Best Metal Performance 2014 category for “Room 24” and won numerous Danish Music Awards. For this album, they dig into their personal stories and those of their genre. The song “When We Were Kids” sees VOLBEAT mull over the immortality and innocence that we all naively experience during our youth, while “Rewind the Exit” and “Die to Live” explore the fact that the pursuit of perfection can be a vain goal.
Rewind, Replay, Rebound was produced by longtime collaborator Jacob Hansen and co-produced by Rob Caggiano and Michael Poulsen. It is the first studio album with Kaspar Boye Larsen on bass. To get the sound of the album, the band also invited a myriad of guests. In addition to working again with singer Mia Maja on several songs, they also reunited with the Harlem Gospel Choir. Clutch singer Neil Fallon is featured in “Die to Live”, as a result of the tour together and love for the singer’s hoarse and powerful style. Raynier Jacob Jacildo (piano) and Doug Corocran (saxophone) from JD McPherson’s band also offer their talent to the song. “Cheapside Sloggers” features an extravagant guitar solo by Exodus and Slayer guitarist Gary Holt. Ultimately, VOLBEAT have not lost the passion to create and progress. That’s what keeps them hungry and musically honest on the new album.
