Mascot Records will release the 15th anniversary limited-edition vinyl of Volbeat’s second album, “Rock the Rebel/Metal the Devil,” on May 20, 2022.
A glow-in-the-dark pressing will be available in all shops and online, while a limited number of unique marble editions will be available here.
“Rock the Rebel/Metal the Devil” originally was released by Mascot Records in 2007 and quickly became a milestone for Volbeat, hitting the number one spot on the Danish album charts and going on to be certified four-times platinum in Denmark and gold in Germany. The album features several hits, including “Sad Man’s Tongue,” which is still a staple of the band’s live shows (as heard on 2020’s “Rewind, Replay, Rebound: Live in Deutschland” and most recently on the band’s co-headline U.S. tour with Ghost), and the fan-favourite “Radio Girl.” “The Garden’s Tale,” which features Johan Olsen from Magtens Korridorer, spent 18 weeks on the Danish singles chart, peaking at number one.
“Rock the Rebel/Metal the Devil” earned the band its first Danish Music Awards nominations in 2008 for Album of the Year, Rock Album of the Year, Band of the Year and Best Singer, as well as nominations for Best Danish Act at the MTV European Music Awards in 2007 and 2008. Volbeat’s live show was also brought to the mainstage at festivals such as Roskilde and Wacken Open Air, and found the band headlining the Metaldome Stage at Graspop, as well as opening for Metallica in Arhaus, Denmark.
