Volbeat appeared to be winding down their support of their ‘Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies’ album, but the band just booked another leg of dates for the spring featuring support from metal icons Anthrax and red hot rising rockers Crobot opening the run.
The tour launches April 24 in Denver with shows booked through a June 2 tour finale in New York City. There will be a pre-sale that goes live this Wednesday (Oct. 29) at 10AM local time in all markets. Visit the band’s website for pre-sale details. Meanwhile, the general on-sale date for all markets is Halloween (Oct. 31), with all markets going on sale at 10AM local time with the exception of Grand Forks (9AM) and Oshawa and Ottawa in Canada (Noon).
Volbeat have been touring the U.S. on one of the fall’s biggest tours, sharing stages with Five Finger Death Punch, Hellyeah and Nothing More. They’ve recently discussed winding down their support of ‘Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies,’ with talk of starting work on their next album in the new year. With that being said, the spring run could be a transitional trek for Volbeat depending on how far along they are with their new album.
Anthrax, meanwhile, have been working on a new album after winding down support of their ‘Worship Music’ disc in 2013. Of course, current Volbeat guitarist Rob Caggiano used to be a member of Anthrax.
As for Crobot, they just released their full-length ‘Something Supernatural’ album after breaking out earlier in 2014 with their self-titled EP.
