VOLBEAT have announced the European/UK vinyl release of Hokus Bonus: a vinyl-only compilation of ‘bonus tracks’ from special editions of the band’s previous albums, many of which have never been available on vinyl before. The LP, limited to 6K numbered copies, features cover art from long-time Volbeat illustrator Karsten Sand and will be pressed on yellow smoke vinyl. Hokus Bonus brings several songs such as “Slaytan,” “Under The Influence,” and “Immortal But Destructable” to the vinyl format for the first time, and also includes early versions of fan-favorites “Evelyn,” “Black Rose,” and “Die To Live.” “We all spend a lot of time in record stores both at home and on tour,” said the band, “and bringing these songs to vinyl, some of them for the first time ever, brings us great joy.” Hokus Bonus will be available on Friday, July 16th and can be pre-ordered here.
VOLBEAT emerged from Copenhagen in 2001. Since then, they’ve tirelessly clawed their way to hard rock’s upper echelon with endless touring and a string of seven beloved full-length albums. Their latest album Rewind, Replay, Rebound was released on August 2nd, 2019 and has spawned the hit singles “Last Day Under The Sun,” “Leviathan” and “Die To Live.” Their latest release, Rewind, Replay, Rebound: Live In Deutschland, features live recordings of songs from Rewind, Replay, Rebound as well as fan-favorites recorded during the band’s sold-out 2019 European tour.
