Earlier this week, KROKUS released their new music video, for the Dirty Dynamite album track, 'Dög Song'. Martin Hausler, producer of the video, offers the following background information:

"Working with animals is harder than working with rockers! After talking to a few professional movie life animal trainers none of them had the right bulldog available or was crazy enough to sign up for a three day shoot marathon on a low budget in LA. So I contacted the California bulldog rescue and posted a casting call on their websites. Out of the approximately 40 responses, I invited and met a few dogs and their owners for two days in L.A. Some of the owners had their dogs better trained than any professional dog trainer I’d met before.

"The best dog was Tank and the craziest owner was Cindy Sneller – so they got the deal. Cindy and her boyfriend Fred, who both came along to the shoot days, ended up being the right choice.

"The shoot was crazy! Some things to remember was how difficult it was to find a tattoo shop that would let us and the dog in and give us a shoot permit with all those health laws in the US. I think my producer went to see about 20 tattoo shops before he found one that was up for doing the scene.

"We had a great time shooting the strip bar scenes. Luckily I bumped into a German strip bar owner in North Hollywood who rented us out his place for 500 bucks or so, which is usually a location you’d have to pay much much more for in LA.

"And then we had to find a stripper who was down for having sex with a dog on camera! It was quite a challenge to get this all together."

Prior to the first concert on their sold out Closer Contact Doeg Tour, Krokus' record label Sony Music presented them with Gold and Platinum record awards for Dirty Dynamite.

Said the band: "Krokus would also like to thank our management team and our record label Sony Music for their hard work and dedication!
