In the last four decades, Switzerland-based rock legends KROKUS have played over 2,000 shows across five continents. Every gig, every place and every crowd was different but all showed tremendous enthusiasm towards the band. Krokus recorded 20 shows for release consideration, eventually deciding on their last sold out show, recorded in their hometown at the House of Rust on August 30th 2013.
Long Stick Goes Boom Live: From Da House Of Rust will be released in North America on April 22nd via The End Records. Listen to 'Hoodoo Woman' from the new release below.
Marc Storace (vocals) comments: "'Hoodoo Woman'. We take a look back to the roots, memories of the hot humid south in a wild west. New Orleans was one of our favorite watering holes. From the sleazy to the sophisticated, you name it, we tried it! The seafood, the music, the bars, the dancers and that feeling of magic in the air, call it what you may, everywhere that taste, the smell, those looks … unique mystique! The Hoodoo album, released in 2010, is an ode to the spirit of the reunion of the originals. The songs portray some of our wildest dreams. A dirty bunch of unsung heroes from a bygone era get back together to exchange memories and refresh their spirits as slowly they ride on into the sun."
Chris Von Rohr (founder, bassist and producer) adds: "The song 'Hoodoo Woman' showcased the new powerful Krokus magic in 2010 as the first release of the reunited originals. This song was in my opinion the hottest of them all on the Hoodoo album. We chose this song as our encore and when you listen to the CD you can hear from the sing-along of the crowd that we had a great Krokus party at the House Of Rust in our hometown in Switzerland. This new live CD captures the essence of this magical, incredible evening. And you've got the front-row seat."
An ecstatic audience and a killer location, for Krokus it was a truly memorable moment - it was the night where Krok 'n' Roll came back to town- to Rockcity Solothurn where it all started in 1975.
"We're extremely happy to share this moment with all of you. This proves that there is still a place for the eternal flame of rock 'n' roll - our medicine of life. A hell of a big "Thank You" for your constant support and appreciation. This is the fuel we need to go the extra mile. Enjoy and spread the word!" - Krokus
