Status Quo to release In Search Of The Fourth Chord album

Watch out - the Quo's about! With a self mocking album title, no less. The band will release their 33rd album, In Search Of The Fourth Chord, on September 10 via their own Fourth Chord label in the UK (and through Edel in Europe and Scandinavia).

For this album, the band reunited with Pip Williams, the man who produced the likes of Rockin' All Over The World", Whatever You Want and the politically charged In The Army Now.

Ticket purchasers for the UK winter tour will have the exclusive opportunity to pre-order a limited-edition12" vinyl version of the album in a gatefold sleeve. The vinyl album will not be available in the shops. QUO fans are also warned to look out for a very special album-linked initiative to precede the release date… "if you dare, then join the quest; but remember, what you find rather depends on what you are looking for. You have been warned!" reads the press release.

No we haven't got a clue what they're on about either.
