Scottish rock singer Doogie White (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, RAINBOW, CORNERSTONE, TANK) makes a guest appearance on the second studio album from Polish hard rockers KRUK, due on June 6 via Metal Mind Productions. White contributes his vocals to a track called "In Reverie".
KRUK members Piotrek Brzychcy, Tomek Wisniewski and Krzysztof Walczyk first met White in 2005 when they shared the stage with YNGWIE MALMSTEEN in Katowice. "We were extremely happy that, after the gig, we could give each other high five, that we could make some commemorative photos," Piotrek says. "Now [Doogie] sings in our song, he sings our lyrics... on our album. It's hard to believe!"
He adds, "I remember one of my first conversations with Krzysiek Walczyk, when we expressed our utmost delight over RAINBOW's 'Strangers in Us All'. It was back when we were just starting to form KRUK and we had never dreamed that we would ever have the honor of cooperating with Doogie White. We adored White for having set new standards in the PURPLE-RAINBOW family with the way he sang with Blackmore.
"What he recorded for 'In Reverie' is to our utmost satisfaction because you can hear passion and joy in every single note. I don't think there's a more happy band today in the entire universe than us!"
