Rob Caggiano quits his kush gig as guitarist of the legendary band Anthrax, to pursue a career as a producer. Rob jumps right into the deep end of the pool by taking on the job of producing the new Volbeat album.According to loudwire.com

Caggiano has entered the studio with Danish rockers Volbeat to twiddle the knobs on their fifth studio album, which is titled ‘Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies’ and due this spring.

“We’re back in the studio, this time breaking some of our old habits and this sometimes means leaving our comfort zone,” reveals Volbeat frontman Michael Poulsen. “We are recording in a new environment, producing with a new set up breaking new sonic ground and it’s exciting! Together with our long time collaborator Jacob Hansen we also have the honor of having producer Rob Caggiano on board in the producer’s seat. Expect lots of surprises and some of our most rocking heavy songs to date. We feel more than ever that we are taking the Volbeat sound to another level without changing what we’re all about. Can’t wait for it to get out there!”

 

Lets all pray that the new album will be in stores before their SOLD OUT show at the Wilma. They say it will be released Spring of 2013, but that usually means sometime around Christmas.
