Michael Schenker Fest are set to invade the UK in November in support of their superb new album, ‘Resurrection’, and today the new official video for ‘Take Me To The Church’ is premiering.
Michael Schenker tells us: “Today we are releasing the new video for ‘Take Me To The Church’, released from Michael Schenker Fest’s debut album – ‘Resurrection’. We filmed the video in an old church in St Petersburg, Russia as well as at our live show there that same evening. The process was an interesting experience! The fans in Russia were great for the video, too.”
Doogie White adds: “‘Take Me To The Church’ was the obvious choice, given the terrific response in the live arena and from fans and reviewers alike, so we decided to bite the bullet and shoot a video.
“This was the first of three songs Michael and I wrote for the ‘Resurrection’ album continuing the partnership we started with Temple Of Rock. It is always fascinating to see how others interpret lyrics and bring them to life visually. We also knew that fans would want to see live footage of the line-up, so we added some of that too.
“So once you have watched the video and learned your lines you can sing along when we come to a town or city near you. ALRIGHT…”
And in case you missed it earlier this week, here’s the ‘Making Of’ video.
Doogie and guitar maestro Michael will be joined by the legendary Michael Schenker Group vocalists, Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet and Robin McAuley on tour. Chris Glen will be appearing on bass with Ted McKenna on drums and Steve Mann on guitar/keyboards.
Support will be from Eden’s Curse.
