    "Tell me how I can fly away," declares Volbeat main man Michael Poulsen on "Cape Of Our Hero", the first single from the band's anxiously awaited new album Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies, in stores April 9.

    "Cape of Our Hero" shines light on the band's myriad of musical superpowers. Whether it's the impenetrable riffing, swaggering rhythms, impressive leads, or Poulsen's own inimitable croon, Volbeat might as well be hard rock's very own Superman. "Cape Of Our Hero" builds on the groundwork "Fallen" laid, but it lifts the band to a new playing field as well. This is a heartfelt and hypnotic anthem that'll stay stuck in your head. At the same time, it's got the depth and instrumental prowess that fans have come to expect.

    It's one of the year's most brilliant and best rock songs, and the perfect prelude to one of 2013's best records. Get ready to take flight with Volbeat.
