August 27th, 2020 by

Scorpions says they are not interested on drive-in concerts

According to Mikkey Dee, SCORPIONS have completed the “first leg” of the pre-production sessions for their upcoming studio album. The drummer and his bandmates are scheduled to regroup in October to resume work on the effort, which is tentatively due in 2021.

The initial session for SCORPIONS‘ new LP took place at Peppermint Park Studios in Hannover, Germany. The disc will mark the German hard rock legends’ first release since 2017’s “Born To Touch Your Feelings – Best Of Rock Ballads”, which was an anthology ofSCORPIONS‘ new and classic material.

SCORPIONS originally intended to record the new album in Los Angeles with producer Greg Fidelman, whose previous credits include SLIPKNOT and METALLICA. However, because of the pandemic, most of the work so far has been done remotely, with Fidelman taking part via Zoom.

SCORPIONS Reunite At Hannover Studio To Resume Work On New Album

July 27th, 2020 by

The five members of SCORPIONS have reunited at Peppermint Park Studios in Hannover, Germany to resume work on their upcoming studio album. Tentatively due in 2021, the disc will mark the German hard rock legends’ first release since 2017’s “Born To Touch Your Feelings – Best Of Rock Ballads”, which was an anthology of SCORPIONS‘ new and classic material.

SCORPIONS originally intended to record the new album in Los Angeles with producer Greg Fidelman, whose previous credits include SLIPKNOT and METALLICA. However, because of the pandemic, most of the work so far had been done remotely, with Fidelman taking part via Zoom.

Earlier today, SCORPIONS posted a short video message from Peppermint Park, letting their fans know that they have finally been able to come together as a band and work on the new LP in a more traditional way.

In the clip, which can be seen below, frontman Klaus Meine said: “Hi everybody out there. We are the SCORPIONS. Believe it or not, after all these months, we are all together here in Hannover. We’re joined in the studio, at Peppermint Park. And we’re very excited to be all back together in one room and to keep going with this new record. It feels great that the band finally rejoined forces.

“We just want to let you know it’s all good in the SCORPIONS camp, and we’re excited to make a new album. And, of course, hopefully we see all of you next year on the road, wherever it is.

“Take care of yourselves, stay well and safe, and we love you.”

Meine recently told Talking Metal that the goal with using Fidelman to produce the new LP is to bring “the old vibe from albums like ‘Blackout’, ‘Love At First Sting’ or even‘Lovedrive’. We try to focus on those albums and this attitude,” he said. “If we get there, who knows — it’s so many years later. But it’s the spirit and it’s the whole vibe around this album. This time, the focus is on the harder songs.”

According to Meine, SCORPIONS‘ new LP will feature “no outside writers at all,” unlike 2015’s“Return To Forever”, which was largely co-written by the album’s producers, Mikael Nord Andersson and Martin Hansen.

Mikkey Dee Addresses Covid-19 Health Issue

July 6th, 2020 by

Mikkey Dee - DRUMMERWORLD

Hello guys!

I just want to set some rumors straight regarding Don Dokkens statement about my Corona situation. I did get Corona and was sick for about 1 month. I am now fully recovered since mid April. I was already playing hockey and drums by the end of April. Unfortunately my good friend Don got some info wrong. I did not get Corona in Australia, the virus was contracted in Sweden. I did not loose 35 pounds, I lost 15 pounds. But as I just mentioned, I am now fully recovered and have registred antibodies so that feels great. I can’t wait for things to go back to normal so we can hit the road again. Thank you guys for caring and my heart goes out to each and everyone affected by the current situation our world is in.

Stay safe! Mikkey

Pollstar Live! Digital Session: The Scorpions

Pollstar took a close look at the incredible career of the Scorpions, which came out of West Germany in the late 1960s and conquered the world “one sting at a time.”
It’s an incredible 55-year history that would require several books to be told in all detail. We focused on the live milestones, like the Scorpions’ first concert in North America at the “World Series of Rock” in 1978; the 1983 US Festival, where some 300,000 fans saw the Scorpions steal the show; the Moscow Music Peace Festival in 1989, also known as the Russian Woodstock, and many more.
The band has sold more than 100 million records to date, which makes them the most successful rock band of Continental Europe.
We sat down with front man and vocalist Klaus Meine, lead guitarist Matthias Jabs and Scorpions founder Rudolf Schenker for the latest installment of the Pollstar Live! Digital Sessions series of interviews – to delve a bit deeper into some of the most significant moments in the band’s career, and to find out how the production of their 19th studio album is going in times when the band cannot meet LA-based producer Greg Fidelman in person.
Check out the full interview below.

Klaus Meine interviewed by Rock Talk with Mitch Lafon

June 30th, 2020 by

Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon… and Alan Niven present legendary Scorpions’ frontman, KLAUS MEINE (recorded June 2020) Klaus discusses the band’s latest single SIGN OF HOPE as well as working on a new heavier album with (Metallica/Slipknot) producer Greg Fidelman, revisiting older demo songs for the new album, the importance of adding Mikkey Dee to the lineup, working with Desmond Child and vocal coach Eric Vetro on Humanity: Hour 1, being re-energized to continue after the Farewell tour, the 40th Anniversary of Animal Magnetism and much more. Plus, one incredible fan boy geek question… QUOTE: “It’s great to have Greg Fidelman (Metallica/Slipknot) on our side. From the very beginning we said, if we make a new album it’s got to be on the harder edge. It’s got to be an album with attitude. It’s got to take us back to the ’80s – where we had many many big songs and big albums like Lovedrive, Animal Magnetism, Blackout and all that stuff. It was just to try to focus on that kind of vibe. If we can pull this off after so many years, I don’t know. All I know is we started writing last year and we have lots and lots of material. What I hear everyday in the studio feels really good… we’re on the right direction; the right track. We work on an album and we try to really go back to the Scorpions DNA from those years. It’s crazy to think about making a new album, but we’re totally in sync with Greg Fidelman. We want to go to this old vibe… After so many many years and decades to go back into the studio to work on an album and to write new material; I think it’s a blessing that we don’t sit here at home watching the grass grow. It’s so much in our veins to travel, to play shows… It feels so good to go deep into your creative world and create new material, new songs… That feels really really good.”
