Volbeat Frontman Isolated Himself To Write New Album Songs


(Classic Rock) Volbeat frontman Michael Poulsen says the band strives for emotion over perfection when recording in the studio. The group have just released their sixth album, Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie, and the singer reveals they followed their standard approach to writing and capturing new material for the follow-up to 2013's Outlaw Gentlemen And Shady Ladies.

Poulsen tells Finland's Kaaos TV: "I would never really call a writing process, a recording process smooth, because there's always a big challenge. There's a lot of work, a lot of frustration, a lot of emotions. It really takes time to get to the right songs.

"I pretty much isolated myself in my house for a half year to finish up the songs, to be able to write the lyrics and write the music and go to the rehearsal room and show it to the other guys, see what songs needed to be on the record. I think we skipped around 25 songs to get to those which ended up on the record. That's basically how it works every time." Read more here.
