Experience classic rock artists Status Quo as you’ve never encountered them before. On June 7th 2013, the band will release their new double album, “Bula Quo!” via earMUSIC/Edel.
“Bula Quo!” has been inspired by their incredible adventures filming their first ever feature-film of the same title. The first disc features 9 brand new tracks, written as the soundtrack for the duo’s madcap escapades in the movie.
Disc 2 contains exclusive reworked studio songs or live versions of 10 classic Quo hits, as well featured in the film (including an amazing Fijian-style rendition of ‘Living On An Island’).
Both CDs show Quo rocking hard at their best, showing once again how the band is enjoying an exciting phase in their long and successful career, after the critical acclaim and the reward received by their loyal audience for the previous studio album “Quid Pro Quo” and the relative tour.
The 90-minute action movie “Bula Quo!” features the band as themselves and stars Craig Fairbrass [‘Cliff Hanger’, ‘Rise Of The Footsoldier’, ‘Eastenders’] and Laura Aikman [‘Keith Lemon The Movie’, Freight’, ‘Surviving Picasso’] with Jon Lovitz [‘Saturday Night Live’, ‘Friends’, ‘The Wedding Singer’]. The film was directed by Stuart St. Paul, who has worked on projects ranging from Duran Duran’s seminal ‘Wild Boys’ video, to ‘Aliens’, ‘Batman’ and three “Bond” films. The movie will hit the stores and theaters soon after summer.
Francis Rossi said, “Making the film in Fiji was a fantastic experience and we couldn’t help but be inspired by our surroundings. We had no plans to write and release a new studio album as well as filming our parts for the movie, it just happened.”
Rick Parfitt added, “We hope that Quo fans will enjoy the film, which is certainly something new for the band, but we know they are going to love the music.”
Status Quo are quite right, as the new material sounds inspired and fresh, it is one album not to be missed for all the people who will love the film, destined to become a cult for Quo fans (and not only).
For everybody else… “Bula Quo!” will “simply” be one of their strongest releases ever!
