Kaspar Boye Larsen, who played bass for VOLBEAT on the band’s recent U.S. tour, has been named a permanent member of the Danish/American rock ‘n’ roll outfit.

“Ten years ago I returned from VOLBEAT’s very first European tour that I joined as a tour session bass player,” Kaspar said. “I was so proud of playing with one of my favorite bands and loaded with great memories of good times but also sad that it was over.

“A lot of things have happened in the meantime, but the songs are as great as ever and I’m super stoked to be joining one of my favorite bands on stage, only this time on a permanent basis.

VOLBEAT guitarist/vocalist Michael Poulsen recenty said about Boye Larsen: “Kaspar did an amazing job in the U.S. I’ve been knowing the guy pretty much since I was 18. Actually, the first European tour we had in VOLBEAT, he was the bass player, because Anders [Kjølholm], our former bass player, couldn’t make the first two weeks because of his kids at home. So Kaspar is not actually that new; he’s just an old member [that’s playing with us] again.”

VOLBEAT’s sixth full-length album, “Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie”, will be released on June 3 via Republic Records.

Produced by longtime collaborator Jacob Hansen and co-produced by Michael Poulsen and lead guitarist Rob Caggiano, “Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie” includes a total of 13 new tracks, reflecting their signature hybrid of rock prowess, metal power, blues soul, and rockabilly swing.
