MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST: 'Take Me To The Church' Video Premiere

"Take Me To The Church", the new video from legendary German guitarist Michael Schenker's MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST project, can be seen below. The clip was shot during a recent trip to St. Petersburg, Russia.

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."

Singer 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 lineup; 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..."

After conquering Japan at the end of this month, MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST will be touring Europe in October/November. Joining Schenker will be three legendary MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP vocalists Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet and Robin McAuley plus Michael Schenker's TEMPLE OF ROCK vocalist Doogie White. Chris Glen will be appearing on bass, with Ted McKenna on drums and Steve Mann on guitar/keys.

Released on March 2 via Nuclear Blast, "Resurrection", which was produced by Michael Voss-Schön, was recorded in four different locations over a five-month period and features guest appearances by METALLICA's Kirk Hammett, Wayne Findlay and Michael Voss-Schön along with contributions from Barden, Bonnet and McAuley — plus White. Also appearing on the album are musicians Mann, McKenna and Glen.
