Denmark’s VOLBEAT have released a video for the Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies album track, ‘Care Of Our Hero’. The clip can be seen below:
Volbeat has recorded an album that seamlessly brings together all of the band’s influences and reshapes them into something gleaming and new. Planned for release in Germany, Austria and Switzerland on April 5th, in the rest of Europe on April 8th, and in North America on April 9th via Vertigo/Republic Records/Universal Music, Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies is a record that’s rich with stories and characters woven throughout its lyrics. Some are real – like the noble lady outlaw Pearl Hart, who held up a stagecoach to buy medicine for her dying mother, or Lola Montez, the erotic dancer with her infamous ‘Spider Dance,’ or ‘Black Bart’, the gentleman highwayman who wrote poems for the people he robbed. Others are entirely fictional. ‘The Nameless One’ is a cautionary tale of dabbling in the dark arts, featuring the mysterious and sinister character of the title. Elsewhere, ‘Room 24,’ featuring KING DIAMOND, was inspired by a terrifying experience in a hotel room somewhere in the heart of America.
