Michael Schenker Fest debuted the video for its new single this week.
The band debuted the lyric video for its new single ‘The Girl With The Stars in Her Eyes‘ on Tuesday. The song is featured in the band’s debut album Resurrection, which was released last year through Nuclear Blast Records. The band is named after its founder, former UFO/Scorpions guitarist Michael Schenker.
The video features a young woman dancing in a variety of settings, such as a dimply lit club, an open space with flaming twirlers and against a starlit background. The song itself boasts a very 80s influenced hard rock sound while its lyrical theme obviously is about a young woman.
Michael Schenker Fest will release its sophomore album Aug. 23 through Nuclear Blast Records. According to Schenker, the album’s title is Revelation. He talked about that and the album in whole in a recent interview.
“Based on the fun that we had recording Resurrection, the success of the album and the surrounding tours we undertook that were just fantastic, I was deeply inspired to make a start on writing new songs for a new Michael Schenker Fest album,” Schenker said. “It is even a step up from Resurrection, with amazing input from all singers and all musicians. I could not ask for a better result. The songs are blazing, snappy, energetic, melodic, and with drummers like Simon Phillips and Bodo Shopf we got amazing results. this time we even managed to record three great mid-tempo songs with all singers involved, singing their hearts out.”
Schenker added, “The album title and cover concept expresses things that have happened in my past as well as what is still happening at the present time. It’s about passion and purity versus greed and corruption. There is much to say. It’s about time I let people know about some of this.”
Revelation was co-produced by Schenker and Michael Voss. It was mastered by Christoph ‘Doc’ Stickel for CS Mastering/Vienna, Austria.
The video’s debut comes as the band has launched a new string of live dates. the latest tour schedule launched Monday and is set to run through May 18 in Austin, TX. The tour’s schedule is noted below.
