Volbeat's New Bassist Left For Tour 12 Hours After Son's Birth


(TeamRock) Volbeat bassist Kaspar Boye Larsen has revealed how he left his wife and one-day old son behind to take the job with the Danish rock outfit. Larsen was brought in to replace Anders Kjolholm and was confirmed as a full-time member in May of this year. And while the opportunity was one he couldn't turn down, it meant he had to miss out on some important family time.

Speaking at Heavy Montreal, Larsen says: "On 11 April we had a son and 12 hours later I was flying for the US tour. Having a small kid back home is kind of hard. But my wife is really into it as well, she is supporting me all the way.

"I miss them. This was the beginning of a real long tour, like six or seven weeks. And I haven't been away from my wife for that much in 11 years." Read more here.
