Volbeat Take Flight With ‘Cape of Our Hero’ Video


With a title like ‘Cape of Our Hero,’ you’d expect something pretty inspiring, and Volbeat definitely deliver with the clip for their latest single. The track, which is featured on their upcoming ‘Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies’ album, just debuted and the video has arrived, as well (watch below).

In the clip, the story is told from the point of view of a young man looking back on his youth and his biggest hero of all — his father. The man revisits the room of his childhood and begins reminiscing about his imaginary adventures, donning a red cape and flying through the sky with his invincible military veteran father. The clip does have its share of tragedy, but also ends on a positive note with the grown youth embracing his father’s uniform and reflecting on the good times.

Volbeat recorded the new album with producer Rob Caggiano. The process went so well that the band invited the former Anthrax guitarist to join the group as a permanent member.

‘Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies’ arrives April 9. As for ‘Cape of Our Hero,’ the song can be found on iTunes here.
