"Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie" was released on Friday, June 3. The Danish-American act took its time making the disc and frontman Michael Poulsen told The Pulse Of Radio that he couldn't be happier with the final product. "I'm very proud," he said. "Totally proud of this one, you know. I'm proud of every record we've done so far, but this time I took the right time to get through every song, every idea, every detail, you know, and I think we managed to — if you ask me — write our strongest album so far."
The first single from the disc, "The Devil's Bleeding Crown", recently hit No. 1 on the rock radio airplay chart, joining previous VOLBEAT chart-toppers "Still Counting" from 2010's "Beyond Hell/Above Heaven" and "Lola Montez" and "The Hangman's Body Count" from 2013's "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies".
VOLBEAT will spend most of the early summer in Europe.
