Volbeat: On The Long And Winding Path

With the North American leg of their 2013 world tour winding down, Volbeat will make their final three U.S. dates right on the East Coast, as they’ll be playing Starland Ballroom on Sept. 25, Skyline Stage At The Mann in Philadelphia on Sept. 26, and Brooklyn Waterfront on Sept. 28. With influences that include American rock ‘n’ roll legends Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash, Volbeat are in no way your average band. They’ve infused rockabilly, schlager, classic rock and heavy metal to shape a sound all their own, and singer Michael Poulsen leaves the dissonant straining and raspy screams for clean vocalizations that, while not common in metal, give Volbeat an interesting, unique sound.
