Earlier this week, the band released a teaser for their new official video for “Take Me To The Church”. The video was shot during a recent trip to St. Petersburg in Russia premiering over on YouTube:
Michael Schenker comments: “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, 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…”

Michael Schenker is one of the most significant rock guitarists in the history of music. He has mesmerized the rock community since the 70’s with his characteristic guitar play and constructed himself a monument during his time in UFO by writing hits like ‘Doctor Doctor’ and ‘Rock Bottom’, as well as SCORPIONS classics such as “Lovedrive”, “Coast To Coast” and “Holiday”, among others. His playing has influenced several generations of guitar players enormously.
Back in 1979, the “German Wunderkind” decided to be his own boss. He founded the MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP aka M.S.G. and released the masterpieces Assault Attack and Built To Destroy, the live legacy One Night At Budokan as well as the McAULEY SCHENKER GROUP pearls Perfect Timing and Save Yourself. M.S.G. also became the home of great vocalists, most notably Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet (ex-RAINBOW etc.) and Robin McAuley. Those guys were also a part of the comprehensive MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST, whose celebrated Tokyo show was released as a live CD, DVD and Blu-ray this March recently passed. Now the time has come for Michael Schenker to move another step forward: by releasing the new MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST studio album, he fulfills the long-awaited dream of all hard rock fans!
