Danish rockers Volbeat will showcase their groove metal meets rockabilly sound throughout North America on the ‘Live From Beyond Hell / Above Heaven’ summer tour featuring support from Hellyeah.

Volbeat’s stock is finally on the rise in the United States — they’ve already been giants in their native Denmark for years. After grinding it out on tours with some of metal’s biggest names — Metallica, Megadeth, etc. — the band is finally getting some long-overdue attention thanks to their recent No. 1 rock radio hit, ‘A Warrior’s Call.’ On the heels of that single’s success, Volbeat have announced that they will take center stage for an upcoming string of stateside tour dates.

After their spring schedule of headlining dates and festival appearances concludes on May 30, Volbeat will embark on the ‘Live From Beyond Hell / Above Heaven’ summer tour with Hellyeah and Iced Earth. The tour has 13 confirmed stops thus far — more will be announced in the coming weeks — beginning on June 18 at Kool Haus in Toronto, Canada.

Volbeat have employed an unusual strategy for the follow-up single to ‘A Warrior’s Call,’ choosing ‘Still Counting’ — a song from their 2008 album ‘Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood’ — as opposed to selecting a track from their current release, ‘Beyond Hell / Above Heaven.’ The song is currently climbing the Active Rock radio charts and sits at No. 17 after just a few weeks in release — the unconventional method appears to be paying off.
