Happy Holidays to ev´rybody! Just before we start to lighten the tree we´d like to give a life sign and a "christmas present" to all our friends and of course to those of the "FRANTIC FOUR"...

Just in case these words are read by somebody who´s under the age of 40: The members of the original STATUS QUO-line-up" are called the "FRANTIC FOUR"...;-)

As we´ve already told you in August the work on a new PILEDRIVER album is in progress, and it´s bound to be released in early summer 2014.

15-tracks are recorded in a demo-version so far; drums and bassguitars exist already in the final versions. Initially we intended to record an album consisting only of self-penned original PILEDRIVER numbers, but then a few weeks ago Peter and  me stumbled across "Don´t think it matters", a song that was published on the 1974 QUO-album, written by Alan Lancaster and Rick Parfitt. To us it´s a real "jewel" because it shows the "hard edge" of the "real Quo". A track that is not as popular as it deserves...

So we made our minds up and reworked this little masterpiece of rock music; we attached an "intro" that lasts about 2 minutes to use this for our upcoming shows. "Don´t think it matters" will be the opener of the "2014 season".

As it happens – the song we started working on last is the first one finished. But it´s only a "rough mix"; for the final album verson it has to be polished a bit more in terms of sound...

Well, we hope you all like our latest recording – it should be heard at maximum volume, of course...

You´ll find the song here.

All the best to you, your buddies and families – we´ll let you know when there´s news about our upcoming album and PILEDRIVER gigs.

Between March 18th and April 12th you´ll probably meet us at one of the FF-gigs across Europe. Then we´ll remember what it was like to go to a SQ-concert in 1978/1979 – very exciting...

Merry xmas ev´rybody - cheers, Michael
