Danish/American rock 'n' rollers VOLBEAT have uploaded short video clip of the band playing a new riff in their rehearsal room. Check it out below.

Asked about the new riff by Nivens of the 98.9 The Rock radio station at this past weekend's (Saturday, June 3) Rockfest at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, VOLBEAT frontman Michael Poulsen said (see video below): "We do have, I believe, around five new songs  that we're jamming, working on, and we've got that one riff also. We  always, when we go out on tour, bring a little bit new stuff with us,  just to tease the audience a little bit, but also just to try it out on  stage."

Poulsen told the 99.7 The Blitz radio station at last month's Rock On The Range festival that three of the five already completed tracks for VOLBEAT's upcoming seventh album "are very heavy [and] more uptempo" while the remaining two are "more melodic rock songs." 

VOLBEAT's sixth full-length album, "Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie", was released in June 2016 via Republic Records. The discs is their highest charting in the United States.

VOLBEAT is currently supporting METALLICA on its stadium tour but is also performing a select few headlining gigs.
