The Danish rock band Volbeat has had its most profitable year ever, according to Ekstra Bladet newspaper.

Its most recent accounts show a profit of 18.4 million kroner for the last year – a marked increase from their 2012 profits of just 1 million kroner.

In April last year, ‘Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies’, the band’s fifth album, reached number 9 in the American Billboard chart, selling 39,000 copies in its first week alone.
