KRAKOW playlist 2012 by Krakow Official
Krakow have also revealed the cover art for Diin, which has been designed by one of America’s foremost tattoo artist Thomas Hooper. Brooklyn-based Hooper, who, as well as being a tattooist is also well known for his paintings and designs, has previously worked with bands such as DOOMRIDERS, TOMB, SCOTT KELLY and OLD MAN GLOOM.
According to Krakow guitarist and vocalist René Misje the chance to work with Hooper is something the band relishes: "We are proud to have had such a talented and renowned artist to create the artwork for our new album. We are big admirers of his work and we were honoured when he agreed to work with us. We are eternally grateful and can only hope that our music does justice to his art".

Formed in 2005 by Frode Kilvik (bass, vocals), Kjartan Grønhaug (guitar) and René Misje (guitar, vocals), the band recently added KAMPFAR and MONDVOLLAND drummer Ask Ty Arctander to their line up. More information about the band can be found at Krakowofficial.com.
