Countdown begins!!! We all are feverishly awaiting the release of KROKUS’s 15th studio album called “HELLRAISER”.

For our fans in Germany & Switzerland we have 2 special “treats” that you might not want to miss:

As already mentioned in a previous newsletter, as part of their “pre-release parties” all over Germany, AFM Records cordially invites you especially to the one taking place on September 23rd, 2006 at the “Rockfabrik” in Ludwigsburg. It is simply a showcase to celebrate the release of the new album with band presence. It’s your chance to meet the band. And as a special treat, for the first time in Europe, they will play a short “acoustic set” of 4-6 songs, similar to what they did in Denver at the “Lewis & Floorwax” radio show last October during their USA tour (go to our web site and click on “backstage”). Except this time the entire band will perform the acoustic set.And one week later, on September 30th, 2006 they will visit the “Mediamarkt” in Lyssach/Switzerland with an “acoustic set” of 4-6 songs, followed by signing autographs and the new CD “Hellraiser”. Do your Christmas shopping early and give some good ‘ole rock to someone you love, KROKUS style.

Starting October, KROKUS will embark on their “HELLRAISER” world tour, starting out in Scandinavia and Continental Europe, continuing in the first half of 2007 with the Americas. And make some noise, fans from “down under”. Maybe this time we come and visit you in Australia & New Zealand as well. A special treat for fans and KROKUS alike will be a concert in late November in Malta, Marc’s original home country. Last time Marc toured Malta with a band was with TEA in the seventies and Malta is getting ready for a special “welcome” of KROKUS and their native son!

Rather than waiting for the complete tour schedule (some dates still have to be confirmed), we decided to give you the dates that are definitely confirmed. And as new dates are added on, we will keep you posted accordingly. You can also check our web site and click on “tour” or under “KROKUS”.
