Listen to Die Krupps and Ross the Boss Team-Up For  For New Cover of “No More Heroes” Single 

Industrial metal kings Die Krupps and Heavy Metal legend Ross The Boss Friedman, famous from his stints in Manowar, The Dictators, and his solo career have teamed up for a new single, out now via Cleopatra Records. “No More Heroes” is a cover of the 1977 track from The Stranglers, which The Dictators supported on their No More Heroes UK tour. The song, which name-checks several recently passed historical figures, is a fitting tribute to the also recently passed Stranglers keyboardist Dave Greenfield, one of the last heroes of British rock, who died in May of this year from complications related to COVID-19. The single will be featured on a forthcoming full-length effort from Die Krupps to be released in 2021, so jam it out now!
