Volbeat Honored With Album & Artist Of The Year By Noisecreep

Volbeat has been acknowledged as the sole artist to win multiple categories in Noisecreep’s inaugural fan determined “Creepies” polling. The Danish quartet was awarded both Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies. Volbeat’s Michael Paulson shares, “It is an honor to be acknowledged by Noisecreep for both Album of the Year and Artist of the Year. The fact that the Creepies are determined by those that fill the venues, buy our records, and support rock music, makes this very meaningful to the band. Thank you to each and every fan who took the time to cast a vote.”

Volbeat is currently touring Europe, where they will take the stage to perform for hundreds of thousands of fans over the Summer. This Fall, they join co-headliner Five Finger Death Punch for a North American run that begins on September 16th at the Maverik Center in Salt Lake City, UT. HELLYEAH will be direct support with Nothing More opening for the Fall.

Volbeat’s Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies has sold more than 300,000 copies in the U.S. according to Soundscan, alongside hundreds of thousands of digital singles. The Danish quartet received their first GRAMMY nomination in the “Best Metal Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies Performance” category for “Room 24” (Volbeat Featuring King Diamond), and won Germany’s Echo Award for “Best International Alternative Act.” The band’s repertoire has become a staple at Active Rock radio, cementing their relevance with six consecutive #1 singles at the format. Their latest “Dead But Rising” recently hit the peak of the chart. Overseas, Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies has been certified platinum in their home country of Denmark, alongside 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. Their current release debuted at No. 1 in Denmark alongside Canada, Germany, Norway, Switzerland and Austria. The album 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.
