Volbeat Announces 2014 North American Tour Plus Nominated For A Grammy

Volbeat returns to North America on April 3rd for a tour of the U.S that brings the Danish quartet coast-to-coast. The run begins at The Fillmore in Denver, CO, and will wrap the second week of May on the East Coast with Trivium and Digital Summer supporting.
 
The band will arrive on North American shores on the heels of their first Grammy Nomination in the Best Metal Performance category for "Room 24" (Volbeat Featuring King Diamond).  Alongside this industry honor, Volbeat has become a staple at Active Rock radio, cementing the band's relevance with five consecutive #1 singles at the format.  The most recent "Lola Montez" follows "The Hangman's Body Count" which held on to the top spot for five weeks, and prior chart toppers "Warrior's Call," "Still Counting" and "Heaven Nor Hell."
 
In the U.S., Volbeat's most recent album release via Republic Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies has exceeded 200,000 copies sold, while overseas the title has been certified platinum in their home country of Denmark, Germany and Austria, with gold sales in Finland.
 
Since forming in Copenhagen in 2000, Volbeat has released five studio albums, and two live offerings that have turned the band into superstars, collecting platinum discs and prestigious awards making them one of the most talked about bands around the world. Volbeat's fifth album, Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies, debuted at No. 1 in the band's home country of Denmark alongside Canada, Germany, Norway, Switzerland and Austria. The new release saw a debut at No. 2 in Finland, No. 4 in the Netherlands and Sweden, and No. 9 in The United States.  Volbeat is Michael Poulsen (vocals/guitar), Anders Kjølholm (bass) and Jon Larsen (drums), joined by former Anthrax/The Damned Things guitarist Rob Caggiano, who produced the new album with longtime Volbeat co-producer Jacob Hansen.
 
The upcoming tour marks Volbeat's fourth visit to North American this album cycle, and follows an excursion as headliners of the Monster Energy Rock Allegiance Tour in August and September, 2013.   This past year, the band has been one of the largest touring draws on the European continent headlining both festivals and a arena tour, and they appeared at the major Japanese festival Summer Sonic 2013 in both Tokyo and Osaka.  Cumulatively, Volbeat has performed for over a million fans since the current album was released.  Confirmed appearances for Spring, 2014 include:
