French rock/metal crossover group VOLKER recently announced the release of their upcoming melodic assault, Dead Doll, hitting North American retailers on May 26, 2017 via Overpowered Records/AISA/RED distribution. North American pre-orders for Dead Doll are available now via Amazon in digital and CD formats.

Today, VOLKER are pleased to reveal the first single off of the new album, entitled "Voodoo Baby". The track charges forward with a raucous hard rock-meets-punk sound, weaving eerie throwback sci-fi film sounds throughout. "Voodoo Baby" is propelled by frontwoman Jen Nyx's signature horror-driven lyricism.

Watch the lyric video and hear "Voodoo Baby" now below.

Guitarist and lead composer Ulrich Wegrich says, "It may come as no surprise that this song is about Voodoo stuff! It's about a lady magician owning her mystical powers and using her spells on men... for revenge! With its energetic beat and touch of 80's pop/punk/rock, this track definitely gives listeners an idea of what VOLKER is all about!"

In addition to the influences heard on "Voodoo Baby", Dead Doll blends assorted heavy music styles such as 90's grunge rock, retro power metal, classic rock and even horror punk to create an accessible, engaging sound.

Whether soaring at the top of her impressive range above striking guitar harmonies, or deftly growling amidst pummeling double bass and searing solos, singer Jen Nyx more than proves her equally-diverse skills on Dead Doll. Conjuring visions of the macabre, Nyx leads with a seductive aggression, flanked byseasoned French musicians John Aupeix on drums, Emmanuel Pliszke on bass and lead composer Ulrich Wegrich on guitars.

Founded in 2014, VOLKER is comprised of a group of friends forged by the French metal scene. Nyx - whose lyrical works have always been inspired by themes of horror, sorcery, dark romance and death - formerly fronted the local metalcore group NOEIN. When musicians Aupeix, Pliszke and Wegrich formed VOLKER as a side project (all three are currently members of extreme black/death group OTARGOS, and Wegrich is also the former vocalist of REGARDE LES HOMMES TOMBER), they brought in Nyx with the intention highlighting her clean vocal abilities. As a band, their ultimate goal was to break out of the extreme metal scene and delve into a heavy, dark rock sound. Thus, VOLKER was born, and went on to record an EP and tour with major metal artists such as MOONSPELL.

Stay tuned for more tracks and other exclusive material to be premiered prior to the release of Dead Doll.
