Volbeat has released a new video for the track "The Nameless One" from its latest album, Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies. The performance clip is taken from the DVD portion of the "tour edition" of the record, which will arrive in stores on November 5th. This version of the Danish/American rock act's fifth studio album will contain new bonus tracks in addition to the live DVD, which will feature footage of the group performing at a number of major summer festivals in Europe.
Frontman Michael Poulsen told us that "The Nameless One" is actually the first chapter in a story that he plans to continue on the group's next studio effort: "Yeah, that's one of the stories, when I first got into it, I just had so many ideas for that song that I, you know, decided that that song should be continuing on the next record. My brain is already working on it a little bit (laughs). But yeah, that's gonna continue."
- Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies debuted at Number One in several countries when it arrived last April, with the disc entering the Billboard album chart at Number Nine.
- The latest single from the record, "Lola Montez," broke into the Active Rock Top 10 two weeks ago and is currently Number Six.
- Volbeat's four previous U.S. singles -- "The Hangman's Body Count," "Still Counting," "A Warrior's Call" and "Heaven Nor Hell" -- all went to Number One on the rock chart.
- The quartet launches a European tour on October 19th in London.
