Fans of guitar great Micheal Schenker have a lot to celebrate this year.

The former Scorpions and UFO guitarist, who has had quite the success as a solo artist, too, will release his latest solo album next month with a support tour to follow its release.  Resurrection is currently scheduled to be released Friday, March 2 via Nuclear Blast Records.

The 12-song album will feature vocals from Schenker’s Temple of Rock front man Doogie White, and from Michael Schenker Group vocalists Gary Barden, Graham Bonnett and Robin McAuley.  Also taking part in the album’s creation were Steve Mann (guitar/keyboards), Chris Glenn (bass) and ted McKenna (drums).  Audiences can hear Resurrection‘s lead single ‘Warriors’ online now here.

Each vocalist will also join Schekner on his upcoming North American tour in support of the new record.  Because they will be part of the tour, it is once again being dubbed Michael Schenker Fest.  The nearly month-long tour is currently scheduled to launch March 6 in Silver Springs, Maryland and run through April 3 in Tampa, Florida with additional dates in Las Vegas, Nevada; Detroit, Michigan; Seattle, Washington and other cities.  The tour’s current schedule is noted below.
