Bridge The Gap

Michael Schenker – Bridge the Gap

Award-winning, legendary guitarist Michael Schenker will release a brand new studio album entitled “Bridge The Gap” in the UK on Monday December 2nd.

 

Released by in-akustik, the album features Schenker’s band Temple of Rock which consists of ex-Scorpions Herman Rarebell (drums) and Francis Buchholz (bass), plus ex-Rainbow’s Doogie White (vocals) and Wayne Findlay (guitar, keyboards).
The new album features 13 hard-hitting, adrenalin fuelled melodic rock’n’roll songs that showcase Schenker’s distinctive and explosive guitar playing, valiantly underpinned by the ferocious rhythm section of Rarebell and Buchholz, marking the first time Schenker,Rarebell and Buchholz appeared on the same album together since the Scorpions’ 1979 “Lovedrive”. 
“I wanted to combine the old with the new,” saysSchenker.  “That’s why the album’s called Bridge The Gap. 
With Wayne playing 7 string guitar we created some low, heavy modern sounds.
Since I play and experiment on a regular basis, I always have some new, fresh sparks to share when I record a new album.  I am inspired from within.  It’s infinite like a kaleidoscope. 
Continues Schenker – “As former members of the Scorpions, Herman, Francis and I have been out of the loop of rock’n’roll for quite a while.  Getting together for the first time since the Love drive album is an incredible jump. We’re connecting the past with the present.  We’re bridging the gap.”
