MSG - Drilled To Kill (OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO) - YouTube
This is an anti war song! From Michael Schenker's
new MSG album 'IMMORTAL', out January 29th:


Michael Schenker releases his new MSG album, "Immortal

Today, Michael Schenker releases his new MSG album, "Immortal" via Nuclear Blast. The album title is a perfect statement describing Michael Schenker's legacy and to celebrate his 50th anniversary as a musician.
To commemorate the occasion, MSG have released a new music video for their single 'In Search Of The Peace Of Mind'.

Watch the video here:

"'In Search Of The Peace Of Mind' had to be my 50th anniversary celebration song. It means so much to me, because it was my very first musical composition I wrote at the age of 15. And it was also the first song I had ever put on a record, also at the age of 15.
In addition, this song from the original „Lonesome Crow“ Scorpion’s album, the very first album the Scorpions had ever recorded, has a solo on it that that was so perfect I would never change a note in 1000 years. I have no idea where it came from, alongside the other solos on "Lonesome Crow", where you can hear that I am an amateur, young and developing as a kid. But this lead break came from somewhere else. I have no idea how it happened.
I wanted to re-record this song for „Immortal“, making it an epic and put an additional long solo on the end of the song, which turned out so amazing. The sound describes my 50-year journey expressed on lead guitar. Again it ended up so amazing, like an inner conversation throughout my life - questions and answers; making choices expressed on lead guitar.
With Gary Barden, Ronnie Romero, Robin McAuley and Doogie White making a contribution to my 50th anniversary, it turned out complete. Not to forget the amazing contribution of Simon Phillips on drums, Barry Sparks on bass, as well as Steve Mann on keyboards. Fantastic.
This is the 4th single for "Immortal" - 50th anniversary of Michael Schenker
Have fun,
Michael Schenker"

"Immortal" is available in the following formats:
CD/Blu-ray Digipak (incl. „Michael Schenker Fest Live @ Bang Your Head festival)
Earbook (incl. album CD + live Blu-ray & live 2CD) *SOLD OUT
LP (black, black/white marbled, red/black marbled)

Get the single digitally, here:

"The song 'After The Rain' was coming out of the blue. A power ballad I have never done before. Michael Voss wrote some lyrics and vocal melodies, after I had put down my musically composition on backing track for this song. The next morning Michael Voss played me what he had sang to it and I said: This is so beautiful, only you can sing this song and it turned out amazing“, comments Michael Schenker.
„This is an outstanding mellow tuned power ballad with some unique Michael Schenker clean picking guitarstyle. When I first listened to Michaels rough sketches, I was singing a kinda ‚lala‘ melody that automatically drove me into the line ‚say have you been lonely,...‘ - from there I felt it must deal about a sad loss and a departure of a big love... but there will be sun and light... after the rain“, adds Michael Voss.

The album was predominantly recorded at the Kidroom Studio in Germany, with Michael's long time partner Michael Voss who co-produced the album and also sings on two tracks. The cover artwork of  „Immortal“ was created by Zsofia Dankova (POWERWOLF etc.).
„Immortal“ will continue the tradition of the previous two MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST records „Resurrection“ and „Revelation“ featuring a big list of friends and guests. The album's main vocalist will be uprising Chilean born talent Ronnie Romero (RAINBOW etc.), along with Michael Voss (MAD MAX etc.)Ralf Scheepers (PRIMAL FEAR) and Joe Lynn Turner (ex-DEEP PURPLE,RAINBOW etc.) singing on two tracks each.

„Immortal“ will feature ten tracks, including the magnum opus "In Search Of The Peace Of Mind". „I wrote this song when I was 15 years old, it was my first ever written piece of music which I recorded with SCORPIONS on our first studio album „Lonesome Crow“ in 1970, getting released in 1972. We re-recorded this song for my 50th anniversary as a celebration and it turned out to be an epic; with an extra extension at the end of the song, which turned out absolutely fantastic with Simon Phillips on drums, doing his usual amazing stuff.“ The result is a true highlight and features even more surprises: „Gary Barden sings the first verse,  continued by Ronnie Romero - and in the end we have Ronnie, Doogie White and Robin McAuley screaming their heads off, as a tribute to my 50th anniversary. Absolute amazing. Thanks to the guys for doing this!“
The limited first edition of this upcoming MSG album will feature another unique extra: „It will include the MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST - Bang Your Head – Blu-ray, which was recorded during our headline show in Balingen/Germany two years ago: Unfixed, raw, pure and great! There's a couple of small mistakes, but because the show and recording went so well, I decided to keep it the way it went on the night. It's live, magic and pure.“

Temple Of Rock - On A Mission: Live In Madrid

On a Mission: Live in Madrid Official Website here

The link below has all the details about the upcoming concert release:

Axes & Anchors Cruise

It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that I will not be able
to participate on the upcoming Axes & Anchors cruise. I was genuinely
excited to perform on this unique and amazing musical voyage alongside
some incredible talent. But with the recent tragic passing of my friend
David VanLanding, who was going to be performing with me, I cannot
bring myself to perform that material on board the ship. It would be
doing a disservice to the cruise, its patrons, and the memory of David
to attempt this show without him. I know there will be some
disappointed fans, but the cruise has assembled some of the best talent
out there and I know it will thrive in light of my having to cancel.
I can only hope that after time passes we can come to grips with the
loss of David and adequately honor his memory. I look forward to being
a part of future Axes & Anchors cruises and appreciate the support of
everyone during this trying time. --Michael Schenker

Michael Schenker - Bridge The Gap

Award winning guitar legend Michael Schenker will release a new studio album entitled "Bridge The Gap" on Friday, November 22nd. released byin-akustik, the album features Schenker's Temple of Rock band which consists of ex-Scorpions drummer Herman Rarebell and bassist Francis Buchholz, vocalist Doogie White (ex-Rainbow) and Wayne Findlay (guitar, keyboards).

The new album features 13 hard-hitting, adrenalin fuelled melodic rock 'n' roll songs that showcase Schenker's distinctive and explosive guitar playing, valiantly underpinned by the ferocious rythym section of Rarebell and Buchholz, marking the first time Schenker, Rarebell
and Buchholz appeared on the same album since the Scorpions' 1979 Lovedrive.

Scottish vocalist Doogie White, who co-wrote the album with Schenker, soars across every song and stamps his enthusiatic personality with every note and phrase. Wayne Findlay adds another dimension to the dynamic, classic Schenker sound with his Dean 7 string guitar and keyboard orchestrations.

Bridge The Gap is a thunderous, explosive collection of brand new songs steeped in shades of dark and light. Musically and lyrically, the new album shows a re-energized guitarist at the top of his game, surrounded by top drawer musicians.

The album was recorded from January through March 2013 at Kidroom Studios in Germany and was produced by Michael Schenker and Michael Voss, and engineered by Michael Voss.

Michael Schenker Personal VIP Package

Michael Schenker Personal VIP Package

Michael is proud to announce a very special opportunity to his fans. We will be releasing Michael Schenker’s Personal VIP package shortly.

This package will include an unreleased - never heard before - CD which features a recording Michael Schenker made in 1979. Michael plays guitar and bass on all tracks, he even sings on some of the tracks. This makes it a very unique and special recording. Michael says this about it.

“It’s a 14 track Demo I wrote and recorded by myself in the Dieter Dirks’(Scorpions Producer)mobile studio whilst Rory Gallagher and the Scorpions were recording next door.

It was going to be material for my first Solo Album. There’s some Instrumentals and I even sing on a few. Ringo Funk helped out by playing drums on some tracks. He was the drummer in a famous German Band at the time called Atlantis.

I recorded this after I left the Scorpions Lovedrive Tour in ‘79. Some of this material I rehearsed later with Joey Kramer and Tom Hamilton from Aerosmith. Some of it I rehearsed with Gary Barden, Billy Sheehan (Bass from Mr. Big) and Denny Carmassi (Drums from Montrose).”

As part of this, very personal package, a once in a lifetime chance to have your name printed on Michael's new guitar model is also available. This is strictly limited to 1000 names. Michael Schenker’s new Dean Signature model and will be available to purchase once created. This has not been done before and will never be repeated again!

This package will also contain a box of goodies such as a unique T-shirt only available with this package.
