Status Quo will release their brand new 2CD album "Bula Quo!" on 10 June 2013 [Cat Nos Physical QUOCD007, Digital QUOCD009] via Fourth Chord Records / Warner Artist & Label Services. The first single from the album, entitled "Bula Bula Quo", will be released on the same date. Disc One of this much anticipated release features 9 brand new tracks which are taken from the soundtrack of the band's forthcoming debut feature film "Bula Quo!" The second disc contains exclusively reworked or live versions of 10 classic Quo hits, also as featured in the film, including an amazing Fijian-style rendition of "Living On An Island". There is also a limited edition del
uxe box set - featuring exclusive gatefold LP, 7", postcards, poster and certificate of authenticity, plus the 2xCD edition, housed in a bespoke box - available only from www.statusquo.co.uk [the site for all album pre-sales, tour tickets and more information].

The film itself premieres in London on 1 July 2013 and goes on general release on 5 July. The 2013 "Bula Quo!" tour will see the band perform 11 UK dates in December with 10CC as special guests ? the UK tour goes on sale Friday 12 April 2013 [livenation.co.uk].

"Bula Quo!" itself is a 90-minute action movie, featuring the band as themselves and also starring 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' movies.

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 an 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."
