VOLBEAT DEBUT NEW SONG, “PELVIS ON FIRE”

Multi-platinum Danish rock band Volbeat debut their new song “Pelvis on Fire,” a cheeky nod to the fun and frivolous rock of yore. “It’s a pure rock ‘n’ roller,” according to Poulsen. “When you hear songs from the ‘50s and ‘60s, and read the lyrics, they are not that deep. But it sounds great. It is a feeling. It’s a movement. It’s sexuality. It’s emotional and that thing we feel when we hear good rock ‘n’ roll.” Listen to “Pelvis on Fire,” off Volbeat’s forthcoming Rewind, Replay, Rebound (August 2nd, Republic Records) here.

Volbeat’s 29-date tour tour in support of Slipknot, on their extensive Knotfest Roadshow North American Tour as special guests, will kick off today in Mountain View, CA with additional stops in Salt Lake City, Phoenix, and Austin (full dates below).  Tickets for these dates are on sale now here.

The Tigers square off today against The Sheep for the Championship in one of the most anticipated matchups of the basketball season. Fans can watch the big game online now HERE.

Coaches Molly Shannon (Tigers) and Terry Crews (Sheep) promise this will be a must-see game for basketball fans around the world. Given the stellar season the Sheep have had, some commentators have predicted that this David vs. Goliath competition will be “the hottest mess in history.” However, Katy ‘Kobe’ Perry, Team Captain for the Tigers, remains optimistic, anticipating an epic game where anything can happen. Hafþór Júlíus ‘Thor’ Björnsson, Team Captain for the Sheep, concurred.

Announcers Bill Walton and Rich Eisen will be on hand to deliver the play-by-play. Fans won’t miss a move thanks to Dave Meyers and his production crew, who will be courtside, capturing all the action. The game marks the GRAMMY® Award-winning video director’s first foray into sports broadcasting.

Both the Tigers and the Sheep have welcomed new players from other walks of life, as reflected in the draft recaps below. Some of the picks proved bewildering for announcer Bill Walton, who asked incredulously, “Where do they find these people?”
