Michael Schenker and MSG have released a video for the song Fighter, a bonus track on the CD edition of their latest album, Universal, released in May 2022.
“Here is our new video, Fighter, from our latest album Universal,” Schenker said. “It’s a catchy little song. Enjoy. We are currently playing festivals, and it’s a lot of fun seeing all of your happy faces out there. Not long from now, we will be touring the States and Japan. We are very much looking forward to it. See you all soon. Keep on rocking.”
“He may be well into veteran status,” MetalTalk’s Paul Hutchings said in his Universal album review, “but Michael Schenker continues to deliver. For those who appreciate well-crafted songs with outstanding musicianship and some sweet guitar work, then Universal is an album to enjoy.”
Schenker will be joined by Ronnie Romero, Steve Mann, Barend Courbois and Bodo Schopf on the MSG North American Tour, which kicks off in California on 27 September 2022, along with Eric Martin and Images Of Eden.
November 2022 sees five dates with W.A.S.P. and Armored Saint before the band head out for three dates in Japan later in November.
“Basically, I am like a kid in a sandbox,” Schenker told MetalTalk in an interview last year (Part One , Part Two). “I just play and discover, having fun. I do not compete, I do not compare, I do not look for money, I do not look for success or fame. Everything that happened to me in my whole 50-year career just happened simply because I wanted to be Michael Schenker. I get my musical inspiration from the infinite spring of creativity, the inner world.”
