Volbeat to play Sturgis Buffalo Chip on 9th August

The unmistakable heavy metal boogie of VOLBEAT will disrupt the Buffalo Chip’s® Wolfman Jack Stage on Friday, Aug. 9.  Critics have referred to VOLBEAT’s blend of heavy metal, rockabilly and punk as “Elvis Metal” and “hooky, major-key hard rock with a beat you can’t keep to yourself.” This unique sound has helped the band become an undeniable rock force, earning them six chart-topping hits in less than five years.

VOLBEAT’s chart-topping songs include “The Devil’s Bleeding Crown,” which clung to the no. 1 spot on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart for nine weeks, and “Seal the Deal,” both from their latest album, “Seal the Deal and Let’s Boogie.” All of the band’s six studio albums have been certified gold in Denmark, and their second album, “Rock the Rebel/Metal the Devil,” received platinum status.

We’ve received so many requests to book Volbeat over the past few years, so we searched them out and started listening. Now we’re big fans! There’s some tremendous talent here with a sound that Buffalo Chip fans are going to love.
