“Dirty Dynamite”, the 17th studio album from Swiss hard rock veterans KROKUS, has 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.

KROKUS has tapped Dani Löble (HELLOWEEN) to sit behind the kit for the band’s upcoming “Dirty Dynamite Tour”, which is scheduled to kick off in early May.

KROKUS‘s official video for the title track of their new album, “Dirty Dynamite”, can be seen below.

“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”.

KROKUS 2013 is:

Marc Storace – Vocals
Chris Von Rohr – Bass
Fernando Von Arb – Lead Guitar
Mark Kohler – Rhythm Guitar
Mandy Meyer – Guitar

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.
