Following the release of their successful debut album Resurrection, have completed the recordings for their second studio album, which is scheduled to be released on August 23rd this year worldwide through Nuclear Blast.
 
“Based on the fun that we had recording Resurrection, the success of the album and the surrounding tours we undertook that were just fantastic, I was deeply inspired to make a start on writing new songs for a new album“, says Michael Schenker and explains: “It is even a step up from Resurrection with amazing input from all singers and all musicians – I could not ask for a better result. The songs are blazing, snappy, energetic, melodic and with drummers like Simon Philips and Bodo Shopf we got amazing results. This time we even managed to record three great mid-tempo songs with all singers involved, singing their hearts out.“
 
The album will be titled Revelation. “The album title and cover concept expresses things that have happened in my past as well as what is still happening at the present time. It’s about passion and purity versus greed and corruption. There is much to say. It’s about time I let people know about some of this…”, comments Michael Schenker.

Revelation was produced by Michael Schenker and Michael Voss. It was recorded and mixed by Michael Voss at Kidpool Studio Greven & Kidwood Studio Münstertal, Germany (December 2018 – March 2019). “Michael Voss is a fantastic musician with great input as a co-producer. Our chemistry is something else. We have a way of working together that is extremely creative.

The album was mastered by Christoph Doc Stickel for CS Mastering/Vienna, Austria.
Additional recordings were completed as follows: Simon Phillips‘ drums recorded by Jason Mariani at Brotherynstudios in Ojai, CA. Bodo Schopfs drums recorded by Rolf Munkes at Empire Studios, Bensheim, Germany. Graham Bonnets and Robin McAuleys vocals recorded by Jimmy Waldo at “Where’s That Track Studio” in Los Angeles, CA.
