Ghost and Volbeat will be co-headlining across the U.S. beginning on January 25, and to commemorate the monumental tour, the bands have teamed up with Blackened Recordings to release a limited-edition double-A-side seven-inch single featuring each band’s contributions to The Metallica Blacklist charity album – Ghost’s cover of “Enter Sandman” on “Side G” and Volbeat’s “Don’t Tread On Me” on “Side V”.
The seven-inch will be pressed on crystal clear vinyl and limited to only 3,000 units with 115 copies available at each tour stop on a first-come, first-served basis (limit one per customer). All proceeds from the split seven-inch will be split evenly between the All Within My Hands Foundation and the charities of the artists’ choice: Camp Aranu’tiq (Ghost) and Børne Cancer Fonden (Volbeat).
The two bands’ 26-date U.S. arena tour will feature support from Los Angeles’s Twin Temple. Tickets for all dates on the Live Nation-produced tour are on sale now, with tickets and band-specific VIP packages available at the Ghost and Volbeat official websites.
Volbeat’s latest album, Servant Of The Mind was released on December 3 via Republic Records. “Rarely has such a successful band sounded so ravenous,” Kerrang! magazine said of the album.
Upon release the album hit the top of many international sales charts, reaching No. 1 in Germany, Denmark, and Austria, No. 2 in Switzerland, No. 4 in Finland, No. 5 in the Netherlands, No. 6 in Sweden and was No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, on the Billboard Current Hard Rock Music Albums chart and Current Rock Albums chart.
The album, which features the number one Billboard Modern Rock singles “Shotgun Blues” and “Wait A Minute My Girl”, is now available in standard CD, deluxe 2LP vinyl (in various limited-edition variants, full info below) and a deluxe digital edition.
