UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC’S VOLBEAT ANNOUNCE RETURN TO NORTH AMERICA FOR SUMMER TOUR
Eleven Seven Recording Artist Cold Chosen as Direct Support for All U.S. Dates

TOUR TO BEGIN IN TORONTO JULY 24 AND END WITH TWO-NIGHT STAND AT THE HOUSE OF BLUES ANAHEIM SEPTEMBER 3&4
All Dates Go On-Sale June 10 & 11

New York - Universal Republic’s Volbeat has announced a Summer tour across North America that brings the band coast to coast, and in to Canada for multiple dates.  Following a near sold-out run in March and April of this year, the Danish metal band continues to sell-out larger venues with each tour of North America.  The quartet’s recent release BEYOND HELL / ABOVE HEAVEN has now sold in excess of 300,000 copies worldwide.  Overseas, the album debuted at number one on the sales charts in Denmark, Finland and Sweden, and Top 10 in a half dozen additional countries.  For the first time in the U.S., Volbeat is currently riding a national hit at commercial radio.  The song ‘Fallen’ is now Top 15 on the Active Rock Chart, and Top 20 at Mainstream Rock, with significant momentum heading for the top ten at both formats.  Volbeat is Michael Poulsen (Vocals / Guitar), Anders Kjølholm (Bass), Jon Larsen (Drums) and Thomas Bredahl (Guitar).

Jacksonville, FL rock powerhouse Cold is set to release their new album Superfiction on July 19 on Eleven Seven Music. Combining vivid, vibrant storytelling with elegantly heavy hard rock, on Superfiction, Cold preserve the alluring darkness that made them a rock mainstay, while honing their approach into an intricate, introspective, and inspirational style. ‘Wicked World,’ the first radio single from the upcoming album, is currently climbing up the Active Rock radio chart.

The tour will begin in Toronto, Ontario on July 24th at Metal TO, and conclude with a two-night stand on September 3 & 4 at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA.  Cold will be direct support on all U.S. dates, but not in Canada.  Tickets for all appearances will go on-sale June 10th and 11th.  The majority of these performances will be promoted by Live Nation.  The itinerary includes appearances in:
