Michael Schenker Group ready new album and massive tour (coming to NYC)


English hard rock veterans Michael Schenker Group, commanded by German guitar god Michael Schenker (ex-Scorpions, ex-UFO), will release a new studio album titled Spirit On A Mission this March through in-akustik. The new LP, featuring 12 fresh rock anthems, almost did not see the light of day as the band suffered an unfortunate setback during the recording process when thieves broke into the studio and stole four guitars and computers containing the album’s mixes. Michael Schenker and Co were able to recover and push forward from the mishap and are now ready to unleash their colossal record upon the masses.

To celebrate the new album’s release, the band will embark on an immense North American tour this spring, hitting major markets such as Las Vegas, Dallas, Toronto, Chicago and New York City at Gramercy Theatre on April 15 with locals Atom Strange and Metalfier. NYC tickets are on sale now.
