VOLBEAT has issued the following via their Official Website:
After a well deserved break from touring Volbeat kick 2014 off with the release of the music video to their hit song “Lonesome Rider”. The video is written and directed by band favorite Plastickid, who also was the genius behind “16 Dollars” and “Cape of Our Hero”. Check it out below:
The story is set somewhere in the past in a dark and somber world unraveling the long lost love story between a dead soldier and a beautiful woman. The song is a duet with Canadian singer Sarah Blackwood of five piece band Walk off the Earth who gained huge success with their cover version of Gotye’s “Somebody that I Used To Know”.
After the release of the video Volbeat will head for live dates in Japan and Australia. They continue their trailblazing triumph arriving 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) for a headliner tour that takes them on yet another pan American stretch. Volbeat will also return to Europe this summer.
