Multi-platinum Danish rock band Volbeat recently revived their long-running “Official Bootlegs” series with the release of a live video of “Leviathan,” the latest single off their seventh studio album, Rewind, Replay, Rebound (Republic Records).
The live video of the song, recorded last year at the Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany, was edited and directed by Brittany Bowman and Shelby Cude with audio mixed by Jacob Hansen.

Volbeat emerged from Copenhagen in 2001. Since then, they’ve tirelessly clawed their way to hard rock’s upper echelon with endless touring, including opening for Metallica, Motorhead, and Slipknot, and a string of seven beloved full-length albums.
Their 2010 album Beyond Hell/Above Heaven, which features hit singles “A Warrior’s Call” and “Heaven Nor Hell,” has received RIAA Gold Certification. 2013’s Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies, which includes the Grammy nominated “Room 24,” bowed at No. 9 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release, marking the highest US chart entry for a Danish act since 1997.
It was a distinction that Volbeat topped in 2016 when Seal the Deal & Let’s Boogie debuted at No. 4. The band also released Let’s Boogie! Live at Telia Parken, a concert film and album documenting their landmark 2017 Copenhagen show in front of 48,250 fans, the largest show a Danish band has ever performed in Denmark.
