Axl’s dislike of Volbeat sat on the backburner for the group’s new single, ‘The Cape Of Our Hero,’ which has just been released along with a video (above). The song’s pretty good and all, but it’s not even the most interesting Volbeat song out there, which makes Axl’s tolerance of this one in particular odd. Different strokes, I guess. I think the song’s cool, though it’s clearly the token radio single. Hopefully the group hasn’t forgotten their thrashier side, which would be silly considering they have a former Anthrax guitarist in their ranks now!
The new Volbeat record Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies is out April 9th.
