Danish metallers Volbeat have just revealed they're in the studio recording a new album. Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies will hit stores in the spring and is being produced by former Anthrax guitarist Rob Caggiano, alongside Jacob Hansen, who also produced and mixed the band's prior four releases. Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies will be released on Vertigo/Republic Records.

Singer/guitarist Michael Poulsen reveals; "We're back in the studio, this time breaking some of our old habits and this sometimes means leaving our comfort zone. We are recording in a new environment, producing with a new set up breaking new sonic ground and it's exciting! Together with our long time collaborator Jacob Hansen we also have the honor of having producer Rob Caggiano on board in the producer's seat. Expect lots of surprises and some of our most rocking heavy songs to date. We feel more than ever that we are taking the Volbeat sound to another level without changing what we're all about. Can't wait for it to get out there!"
