Status Quo released a new song entitled “Backbone”. The track integrates the album of the same title, which will reach the public on September 6, through earMUSIC / Edel.
“Backbone”, the album, will be the first of Status Quo without guitarist Rick Parfitt, who died in 2016. The musician joined the band in 1967, a year before their first album, “Picturesque Matchstickable Messages from the Status Quo” be released.
Hear the song below:
Status Quo are an English rock band who play boogie rock. The group originated in The Spectres, founded by Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster in 1962, while still schoolboys. After a number of lineup changes, which included the introduction of Rick Parfitt in 1967, the band became The Status Quo in 1967 and Status Quo in 1969.
They have had over 60 chart hits in the UK, more than any other rock band, including “Pictures of Matchstick Men” in 1968, “Whatever You Want” in 1979 and “In the Army Now” in 1986 and 2010. Twenty-two of these reached the Top 10 in the UK Singles Chart. In July 1985 the band opened Live Aid at Wembley Stadium with “Rockin’ All Over the World”. In 1991, Status Quo received a Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.
Status Quo starred in their first feature film, Bula Quo!, which was released to cinemas in July 2013.
The film coincided with the release of the soundtrack album Bula Quo!, which peaked at number 10 in the UK Albums Chart. The first single from the album, “Bula Bula Quo” was released in June 2013, and is Status Quo’s one hundredth single release.
