2014- Live Collage KROKUS Press Shot - Low

“This is the definitive proof that, in a ridiculously digital, cold and anti-septic world, there is still a place for honest, dirty, handmade music – for the eternal flame of Rock n’ Roll – our medicine of life.” – from the liner notes of Long Stick Goes Boom.

Ready for some Krok n roll? The boys in Krokus are back with a monster live album defining the current era of the band as well as touching on their lengthy career as die hard devotees of gritty, blue collar hard rock. In the last four decades, Krokus have played over 2,000 shows across 5 continents
and Long Stick Goes Boom: Live from da House Of Rust reflects the miles under their feet and the many friends made along the way. Recorded August 30th, 2013 the show featured on this killer live record was a full circle moment for the band, coming home to where it all started in 1975 – Rockcity Solothurn.

Krokus drummer Freddy Steady leaves band

Posted by jessepac on Monday, May 23, 2011 at 9:01 PM (PST)

freddy steady pictureFreddy Steady, original drummer for Swiss band Krokus, has announced his departure from the band after reuniting with them only three years ago. The remaining members each chimed in on the split, but no word from Steady himself.

Guitarist Fernando Von Arb:

“The split was not of personal nature but solely a professional decision. Freddy 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.”

Vocalist Marc Storace:

“We surely did not reunite in 2008 and carefully planned our comeback just to stop now! We enjoyed three extremely successful and productive years with exciting live shows and our new platinum CD, ‘Hoodoo’. This isn’t the beginning of the end for the rest of us. We have so much more planned for the future. We are in charge of our destiny and we will decide when the final curtain call will come.”

Guitarist Chris Von Rohr:

“We want to finish the possibly last round with power, pride and gratification. That has nothing to do with money or anything else. Simply joy to play our style of music and the feeling we get at live shows when we pull the trigger — long stick goes boom!!!””

Krokus’ last album Hoodoo (AFM Records) was the 16th in their career and had a song featured on the “Saw 3D” soundtrack.
