September 2010, Status Quo will release a brand new version of their
classic hit "In The Army Now" through Universal / UMTV. The original track
is approaching its 25th anniversary and, upon release in 1986, became one
of the biggest-selling records of the '80s worldwide. All profits from this
updated and lyrically-reworked version of a true fan favourite will be
donated equally to the British Forces Foundation and Help For Heroes
charities. The former boosts the morale of servicemen and women on the
frontline and in operational theatres all over the world, primarily through
high quality entertainment, and the latter provides direct, practical
support for injured service personnel.

Francis Rossi said, "It seemed like the right time to do this. This release
is intended to show our support for the Allied Forces around the world, but
in particular, of course, the British Armed Forces. We want people to
celebrate what they do, say thank you and also support these vital

The stunning video was recorded at the Kiwi Barracks of the 4-Rifles
regiment and on location at the National Tank Museum and is rammed with
hilarious footage of the band being put through their paces on the drill
square, getting behind the wheel of some seriously heavy military hardware,
and much more. The video is an unalloyed triumph and a testament to the
work of the British Army. The band were so enamoured by the Sergeant Major
who took charge of them that they asked him to deliver the classic "Stand
Up And Fight!"
line on the single.

Recorded just weeks ago at the Vestry Hall of the London College of Music,
the track was, once again, produced by Pip Williams. This 2010 recording
also features male and female backing singers from the Corps of Army Music.

The "In The Army Now" single is aimed at refocusing attention on the
amazing job being done for us around the world by the Armed Forces and also
in raising some much needed funds to better support those who need it most.
Status Quo are delighted to get involved with these two charities and hope
that the British public connect with the campaign too.
