Swiss hard rock veterans KROKUS Releases New Video "Dög Song"

Swiss hard rock veterans KROKUS have posted the new video for "Dög Song". The clip focuses on the band's the new mascot, the English Bulldog Da Dög, who is pictured on cover of KROKUS' latest album, "Dirty Dynamite". The video clip can be seen below. 

Krokus was founded in Solothurn in 1975 by bassist (and original lead vocalist) Chris von Rohr and guitarist Tommy Kiefer. Former Eazy Money vocalist Marc Storace joined the band as frontman in time for their Metal Rendez-vous album in 1980. They enjoyed moderate success in North America during the 1980s

The band name Krokus is German for crocus, a flower common throughout Europe. Early in the spring of 1975, band founder Chris von Rohr observed a field of these flowers while traveling by train. He was returning from L'Ecole des Chefs located in France after an aborted career in the culinary arts, and it was around this time the idea for the band was formed. The band members stated that it was the perfect name, since it featured "rok" in the middle.
