VOLBEAT’S OUTLAW GENTLEMEN & SHADY LADIES #1 SOUNDSCAN DEBUT!
(Toronto, ON – 17 April 2013) - Danish rock band Volbeat has debuted at #1 on the Neilsen Soundscan Top 200 chart with over 8000 units sold. Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies is their fifth studio album, released on 09 April through Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The title Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies tells you everything you need to know about the album. It’s a phrase that evokes another time, an era when elegant lawbreakers were the rock stars of the day. It tips its fedora to everything from the bad men (and women) of the old west to the old school metal bands who influenced the young Michael Poulsen. Volbeat’s last recording; Beyond Heaven/Above Hell and the corresponding live DVD, have both been certified gold in Canada. The band also just completed a SOLD OUT nation-wide tour. www.volbeat.dk
