Volbeat’s new single is a 1950’s rock n roller
Volbeat have released their new song Pelvis on Fire, a cheeky nod to the fun and frivolous rock of yore. “It’s a pure rock ‘n’ roller,” according to frontman Michael Poulsen. “When you hear songs from the ‘50s and ‘60s, and read the lyrics, they are not that deep. But it sounds great. It is a feeling. It’s a movement. It’s sexuality. It’s emotional and that thing we feel when we hear good rock ‘n’ roll.”

Volbeat will release their seventh album Rewind, Replay, Rebound, which includes Pelvis On Fire, on August 2nd via Vertigo/Universal.
“The whole point for us going into the studio, is because you still have something to prove — not just for the fans, but mostly for yourself,” says Poulsen. “We would not be able to do this record if it wasn’t for the work we have done in the past. No matter how old the band gets or how many records we do, there is always going to be that signature sound.”
Rewind, Replay, Rebound will be available on multiple formats including a 2-CD deluxe edition, a special deluxe edition box set, and transparent and blue coloured vinyl, numbered and limited to 1000 copies each.
Volbeat are currently on tour with Slipknot as part of the Knotfest Roadshow North American Tour as special guests alongside Gojira and Behemoth.
