Long-running Swiss rockers KROKUS — who recently announced that they were reforming in their classic formation featuring Marc Storace (vocals, 56), Fernando Von Arb (guitar, 53), Chris Von Rohr (bass, 56) and Freddy Steady (drums, 55) — have issued the following update:

"It's official! No more speculation on who's gonna be the last part of the most-anticipated KROKUS comeback puzzle. No other than Mark Kohler will complete the return of the 'originals' on rhythm guitar. He played in KROKUS's most successful international lineup that stormed the charts worldwide in the early '80s. You heard Mark on 1982's 'One Vice At A Time' album for the first time, then on their most successful release 'Headhunter' in 1983, followed by 'The Blitz' album in 1984. He also was featured on 1986's studio album 'Change Of Address' and the same year on the first KROKUS 'live' album called 'Alive And Screaming'. He joined Marc, Fernando and Chris on 1988's 'Heart Attack' and one more time in 1995 on their release 'To Rock Or Not To Be'. With the exception of 'The Blitz' tour we also saw him rocking the USA and be part of most worldwide tours. And now we will see him in action this coming August, reunited with his famed bandmates and rocking the stage again."

On August 2, KROKUS will play its only concert planned for 2008 in the band's native Switzerland at Stade De Suisse stadium in Bern. Afterwards, the group will begin work on its comeback album, tentatively due mid-2009.

The classic KROKUS lineup reunited for an appearance on November 18, 2007 on a TV show honoring the greatest Swiss songs of all time. The "Die grössten Schweizer Hits" program featured KROKUS performing a medley of the tracks "Tokyo Nights", "Bedside Radio" and "Heatstrokes".

Unfortunately, as the news hound that's one of the more unpleasant aspects of my job. :?

This just in from the Krokus newsdesk:

See and hear KROKUS rhythm guitarist Mark "Koki" Kohler in a rare interview. As the previous video interviews with bassist Chris Von Rohr, drummer Freddy Steady and lead guitarist Fernando Von Arb, this is a continuation of our Globe Club interviews. This one was captured especially for you outside the "Kofmehl" Youth Center in Solothurn. Switzerland, the birthplace of KROKUS (the band rehearsed at this location during the week preceding past year's magic concert in Bern) and at the "Stade De Suisse" Football Stadium in Bern at sound check a day before the concert.

Koki played on 7 KROKUS albums (studio & live albums) over a time period between 1982's "ONE VICE AT A TIME" release and up to 1995's "TO ROCK OR NOT TO BE".

Find out what's behind his nickname "Koki", who his guitar teacher was in his teens, how he got to join the band in 1982 and then in 2008 again, what his favorite KROKUS album is and much more..

To view this interview, visit our web site http://www.krokusonline.com and follow/click the following:
GLOBE CLUB > GLOBE CLUB INTERVIEWS > VIDEOS > 2008 REUNION > 2008 BERN - KOKI

Sports and weather next.
