Following a #1 hit on American radio with "A Warrior's Call," Volbeat is enjoying great success with the follow-up single crowd favorite "Still Counting." †The song has risen to number 7 on the Active Rock charts.† Volbeat has just completed a Spring tour that took the band through the festival circuit to widespread raves.† Over the past several weeks, Volbeat staged appearances at The Beale Street Music Festival, Carolina Rebellion, RockFest, Bamboozle, Rock On The Range, Rocklahoma, and many others with individual radio stations.

The band's latest album BEYOND HELL / ABOVE HEAVEN debuted at number one on the sales charts in Denmark, Finland and Sweden, and Top 10 in a half dozen additional countries.† In the U.S., it continues to see strong sales on a weekly basis, and had scanned over 100,000 albums.† Since the Danish metal quartetís formation in October, 2001, Volbeat has become one of the major attractions in the European scene.† This success has followed as a headliner in the U.S., with the band now selling out venues across the country coast to coast.

Hard rock supergroup HELLYEAH is back with their third album, Band of Brothers (July 17th; Eleven Seven Music).† The album was recorded in Dallas at drummer Vinnie Paulís home studio, VPís Upstairs Studio and sees the band returning to their collective metal roots with the influences and style of Mudvayne, Pantera, Damageplan and Nothingface.† ICED EARTH has been touring non-stop since last October in support of their latest, highly-acclaimed outing Dystopia (Century Media/EMI).
