RockNLive.org recently conducted an interview with Swiss hard rock veterans KROKUS. You can now watch the chat below.

“Dirty Dynamite”, the 17th studio album from KROKUS, entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 17. This marks the first time in KROKUS‘ history that the band has landed in the Top 20 of the German chart.

“Dirty Dynamite” was released on February 22 in Europe via Sony Music and in North America on March 5 via The End Records. The CD marks the return of KROKUS guitarist Mandy Meyer after 30 years. Sound engineer for the recording sessions was again Dennis Ward, who also recorded the band’s last album, “Hoodoo”.

Drummer Freddy Steady left KROKUS in May 2011 because he “concluded that he really wanted to play music just for fun in small clubs rather than conquering the world, playing arenas on huge stages with pyro props, etc.,” according to guitarist Fernando Von Arb.

KROKUS recently recruited Flavio Mezzodi as the band’s new drummer.

KROKUS“Dög Song” video can be seen below. The clip focuses on the band’s the new mascot, the English Bulldog Da Dög, who is pictured on cover of KROKUS‘ latest album, “Dirty Dynamite”.
