SCORPIONS: ‘We Gotta Be Strong And United In This Very Difficult Time’

#StayHome: A Message From SCORPIONS; Video

German hard rock legends SCORPIONS are the latest musicians to stress the importance of international solidarity as we address the effects of COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus.

There have been more than 169,000 confirmed cases and more than 6,000 deaths so far, putting public health systems and emergency services under immense pressure.

Earlier today (Monday, March 16), SCORPIONS took to their social media to share the following message: “Dear Fans all over the World, wherever you are … please take good care of yourself … more than anything we’re wishing all of you good health … we gotta be strong and united, in this very difficult time … with lot’s of love … SCORPIONS

There is no known cure yet for the flu-like virus, which originated in China.

Officials have made it clear that the elderly — especially those with heart, lung and immunological conditions — are particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus, with at least 25 deaths linked to one nursing home in Washington.

In Italy, which has one of the oldest populations in the world, one hundred percent of the people who have died have been over 60, and the vast majority over 80.

According to the Centers For Disease Control And Protection (CDC), coronavirus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person — between people who are in close contact with one another (within about six feet), and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

SCORPIONS guitarist Matthias Jabs has confirmed to New Zealand’s “The Metal Bar” that the band is putting the finishing touches on the songwriting process for a new studio album. The upcoming 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.

“We’ve been writing some material before we went on tour, before we went on tour this summer,” Matthias said (hear audio below). “It’s always difficult to come up with stuff on tour. You get the inspiration, but to actually put it down, that’s a different story, when you travel every day. So we have songs — about 10, I guess — but we will have to do some more writing once this tour is over, and then prepare for the rehearsals and recordings right after our shows in New Zealand and a couple in Asia. So we will be back in early March. And we know that we work with the producer Greg Fidelman, who is known for doing METALLICA and SLIPKNOT and others, and he’s a great guy. And he came to visit in our studio in Hannover, Germany already. So the plan is to record until the first of July, where we have a residency in Las Vegas for a whole month. And then, during that time, we can either do the final touch-ups or mix. And then the album should come out in the fall of 2020. And then, of course, we go on the road again.”

Asked where he gets the inspiration for new SCORPIONS material nowadays, Matthias said: “It works slightly different than in the early days. In the early days, I took the guitar and came up with some great riffs and was excited about that. And we took it from there. Today, almost every riff has been played already by myself and by others. What else do you wanna do? So the approach is slightly different — it’s more about the song and the melody and even the lyrics, sometimes, they could be the inspiration. And you do the riff and all the guitar work, you do that later on. Not always, but it’s not the main source for songwriting anymore, as it used to be in the beginning, when we were so excited. ‘Oh, listen to this new riff. It’s great. Let’s turn it into a song.’ It’s a little bit the other way around now.”
