KROKUS Reunite With Guitarist Mandy Meyer





30 years after his departure from KROKUS, guitarist Mandy Meyer has now officially returned.


Founder Chris Von Rohr and Fernando Von Arb are thrilled to have him
back in the fold. Fernando adds: "Now the Krokus family is complete
again".





Mandy Meyer replaced original guitarist Tommy Kiefer (RIP) for the
remainder of 1980's Metal Rendez-Vous tour and 1981's Hardware tour. And
witnessed the growing popularity of Krokus worldwide including the
band's first US tour. Those two albums sold millions of copies around
the world.


Mandy left Krokus and moved at the tender age of 22 years old to Los
Angeles to pursue his musical dreams. And it worked out pretty good, as
time would tell.


In the mid-nineties Mandy moved back to Switzerland and joined
GOTTHARD, another successful Swiss band. In 2004 he left that band and
concentrated on his solo career. Between 2005 and 2007 he toured with
Krokus
in support of the Hellraiser album, which he recorded and
contributed to.


In 2009, Meyer joined forces with vocalist Michael Kiske
(ex-HELLOWEEN) with Dennis Ward (bass) and Kosta Zafiriou (drums) of
Germany's PINK CREAM 69 in UNISONIC.


Towards the end of 2011 Chris Von Rohr approached Mandy and asked
him whether he would be game to play a couple of shows in Japan. Recalls
Mandy: "I agreed in a New York minute". The concerts proved to be
totally successful. "And we got along great, it was as if time stood
still," reminisces Mandy.


Chris Von Rohr along with vocalist Marc Storace recently laid down
bass and vocal tracks at no other than London’s Abbey Road Studios for
the band’s 17th album, Dirty Dynamite. Coincidentally, THE BEATLES, the
band who made this studio famous are celebrating their 50th anniversary
this year. Sound engineer for the recording sessions is again Dennis
Ward, who also recorded our last album Hoodoo.





Chris Von Rohr promises: “The new songs sound like dirty dynamite: pure, dirty, in your face hard rock with a touch of blues.”


Adds Marc Storace: “We’ve been taking the time it needs writing for
our next rock album and we guarantee that it definitely will contain no
fillers!”


Krokus 2012 is:


Marc Storace - vocals

Chris Von Rohr - bass

Fernando Von Arb - lead guitar

Mark Kohler - rhythm guitar

Mandy Meyer - guitar
