Behind-the-scenes footage from the making of “Leviathan”, a new song from the Danish/American hard rock group VOLBEAT, can be streamed below. The track is taken from the band’s seventh album, “Rewind, Replay, Rebound”, which was released on August 2 via Republic Records.

At this point in their already storied career, VOLBEAT has opened for METALLICA, MOTÖRHEAD and SLIPKNOT, garnered the 2014 “Best Metal Performance” Grammy nomination for “Room 24” and won multiple Danish Music Awards. For this album, they mine their own personal histories and that of their genre: the song “When We Were Kids” finds VOLBEAT ruminating on immortality and innocence we all naively experience in our youth, while “Rewind The Exit” and “Die To Live” both explore how the pursuit of perfection can be a hollow goal.

“Rewind, Replay, Rebound” was produced by longtime collaborator Jacob Hansen and co-produced by Rob Caggiano and Michael Poulsen. This marks the first studio album with Kaspar Boye Larsen on bass. To achieve the album’s sound, the band also drew upon a myriad of guests. In addition to again working with backing vocalist Mia Maja on several tracks, they also reunited with the Harlem Gospel Choir. CLUTCH vocalist Neil Fallon is featured on “Die To Live”, the result of touring together and a love for the singer’s gruff and powerful style. Raynier Jacob Jacildo (piano) and Doug Corocran (saxophone) of JD McPherson‘s band also lend their talents to the song. “Cheapside Sloggers” features a ripping guitar solo by EXODUS and SLAYER guitarist Gary Holt. Ultimately, VOLBEAT have not lost their passion to create and progress. It’s that which keeps them hungry — and musically honest on the new album.

VOLBEAT recently announced the first leg of the “Rewind, Replay, Rebound” world tour, with support from BARONESS and DANKO JONES.
