The next Volbeat album won't be out until April 9, 2013, but you can check out some news of the latest offering "Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies" right here, right now.

After adding Rob Caggiano as a co-producer along side Jacob Hansen, heads starting turning, urging many to think that, at least production-wise, this would be the best Volbeat album yet.

More and more details are surfacing and it looks like that may just be the case for all corners of the new Volbeat material.

Word has it that the legendary King Diamond will be featured on the track "Room 24".

Michael Poulsen, vocalist and guitarist for the Danish rockers, says that the album is somewhat new for Volbeat, but that the older elements fans have fallen in love with are still there. Yes, the "western motifs" and "rockabilly" aspects are very alive and well in this new batch of tunes, so don't worry, the Volbeat you know and love is still here.

Be sure to pick up your copy of "Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies" when it hits shelves April 9, and be sure to grab you some tickets to the Volbeat show on Monday, March 11.
