Volbeat has unveiled the video for “Shotgun Blues,” the third track preview from their eighth studio album Servant Of The Mind.

The video, directed by Adam Rothlein, is based in New York City in 1902 and follows a death row prisoner on his way to the electric chair.

As for Volbeat’s new album, Servant Of The Mind is due out December 3 and is currently available for pre-order here. Frontman Michael Poulsen said in a statement on the album, “I wrote the whole album in three months. I was in a good place and mood while at home, and had a captive audience of myself… There are a lot of Volbeat signatures in it. If you go back to the first record and compare it to where we are now, you can hear how the band has developed its style, while keeping the signature sound.”
