Danish metallers VOLBEAT have announced that their new album, "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies", will be released in Germany, Austria and Switzerland on April 5th, rest of Europe April 8, on North America on April 9th via Vertigo/Republic Records/Universal Music.

Check out the artwork below:

The band has also shared that former ANTHRAX and THE DAMNED THINGS guitarist Rob Caggiano has officially joined the band. Caggiano served as producer on "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies", alongside long-time production partner Jacob Hansen, who produced and mixed the band's prior four albums. Caggiano was a member of ANTHRAX for two tenures from 2001-2005 and again from 2007-2013.

Singer and guitarist Michael Poulsen shared: "The band is very proud and happy to announce that he will also be the new guitar player in VOLBEAT. The collaboration with Rob in the studio was so inspiring and in good spirit that we the decided to keep him. Basically we went into the studio as a three piece and came out as a whole band!”

Poulsen also offers additional detail on the recordings sharing: "We are still ‘rocking out’ in the studio, and working on the last details. We are very excited about this album. We feel that we’ve achieved the goals we set out. The heavy stuff on the album is perhaps more old school heavy riffs than earlier, and the Rock songs rock out with tons of melodies and take us into unchartered territory. All that without losing the VOLBEAT sound that is the cornerstone of our band."

VOLBEAT will finally return to Denmark after nearly two years of absence to world premiere brand new material from their forthcoming album. The band will allow their fans a unique opportunity to hear brand new material plus VOLBEAT classics in intimate club surroundings.
