HAPPY NEW YEAR - THE FUTURE IS LOOKING BRIGHT

KROKUS wishes all of you “hoodoo men” and “hoodoo women” a healthy, prosperous and HAPPY NEW YEAR! Thank you for making last year such a memorable and magical one!

Let’s have one last “flash-back” to last year. The band played their last concert in 2009 on December 18th as part of the “Rockin’ Christmas” festivals. To view pictures from that concert, go to our GALLERY page:
GALLERY > PICTURES > 2010 - "Rockin' Christmas" Festival Wetzikon

Thirty years after the original line-up conquered the world with their straight forward/no-nonsense rock’n’krok, the band’s long anticipated new CD “Hoodoo” was released last year. And sold worldwide more than 100,000 copies!

Marc Storace: “It exceeded our boldest expectations, we never expected such a huge success!”

With all the commercial success of KROKUS since the reunion, most importantly there is finally total harmony amongst the band members. Gone are the heated arguments and heavy disputes that troubled KROKUS in the past and resulted in constant line-up changes and are non-existent these days. KROKUS founder and bassist Chris Von Rohr sums it up best: “We finally learned to accept the flaws and individual characteristics of each other and live with it”.

And what will the (immediate) future bring? The only Swiss rock band ever to have sold 13 million albums worldwide since 1976 is planning a follow-up to 2010’s “Hoodoo” release. Chris Von Rohr confirms: “Beginning of the year we start writing new songs”. Those of us that know Chris’ talent as a producer and the rest of the band as song-writers/composers as well, also know that with the success of “Hoodoo” the bar is set even higher for KROKUS to deliver a worthy follow-up album. And it is an exciting challenge they are looking forward to take on!

Once the first step of writing songs is completed, recording will start most likely in the second half of 2011 with a release date in 2013 the latest. By then the rockers from Solothurn, Switzerland will be on average 60 years old. Asked by the largest boulevard paper of Switzerland: “No slowing down?”, Chris Von Rohr answers quickly: “No way”. Reflecting a moment, he laughs and adds: “We are the prime example that rock music keeps you young – besides AC/DC and the Rolling Stones of course”.

Stay tuned for updates down the road…
HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM KROKUS!

KROKUS LASSENS WIEDER KRACHEN

Live Konzert Bilder vom letzten "Rockin' Christmas Festival" Konzert am 18.12. in Wetzikon kann man auf diesem Link sehen: http://krokusonline.seven49.net/Web/en/Gallery/PICTURES/2010_Rockin_Christmas_Wetzikon.htm

Es war die Rocksensation des Jahres: Nach knapp 25 Jahren brachten KROKUS in ihrer Urformation die neue CD «Hoodoo» heraus – und verkauften davon weltweit mehr als 100,000 Stück! «Unsere kühnsten Erwartungen wurden übertroffen», freut sich KROKUS-Sänger Marc Storace. «Wir hatten nie mit diesem Mega-Erfolg gerechnet!»

Doch was die Band im Frühjahr fast noch mehr verblüffte: Von den Streitereien, mit denen sich die Mitglieder bis dahin das Leben schwer gemacht hatten, blieb nach der «Reunion» keine Spur. «Wir haben endlich gelernt, die Fehler und Eigenheiten des anderen zu akzeptieren», sagt Bassist Chris von Rohr.

Die legendäre Rockformation vom Jurasüdfuss, die seit ihren Anfängen Mitte der 70er-Jahre rund 13 Millionen Alben verkauft hat, plant nun die Nachfolge-CD zu «Hoodoo». «Anfang Jahr beginnen wir mit dem Schreiben von neuen Stücken», so Chris Von Rohr zu “SonntagsBlick”.

2011 gehen KROKUS wieder ins Studio, spätestens 2013 soll das neue Album in den Läden stehen. Dann sind die Solothurner Rocker über 60 Jahre alt. Keine Ermüdungserscheinungen? «Ach was», winkt Von Rohr ab. Dann denkt er eine Sekunde nach, lacht und sagt: «Wir sind das beste Beispiel dafür, dass Rockmusik jung hält – nebst AC/DC natürlich und den Rolling Stones".
