Michael Schenker has started work on the next Michael Schenker Fest album.
The veteran guitarist, who has worked with acts, such as Scorpions, U.F.O. and McAuley Schenker Group, made the announcement this week in a news release as he celebrated his 64th birthday.
“Thank you to my fans all around the world for all the birthday messages I have received today,” Schenker said. “I’d like to take this opportunity to repay your kind birthday messages by announcing that I am currently in the studio with Michael Voss, recording a second Michael Schenker Fest studio album. With great pleasure, we will once again have Gary Barden, Graham Bonnett, Robin McAuley and Doogie White on vocals with Chris Glenn (bass), Ted McKenna (drums) and Steve Mann (keys/guitar). It’s great to keep the family together for another studio album, and it’s already sounding great.”
Schenker’s new, as-yet untitled Michael Schenker Fest album is currently scheduled for release in August via Nuclear Blast Records. The album’s precise release date has not been confirmed yet.
Schenker will take some time away from the studio this spring for a series of live dates in North America. His current tour is scheduled to launch April 15 in Hollywood, CA and run through May 18 in Austin, TX. The tour’s schedule is noted below.
