The attack of the mad axeman hit NYC this past Wednesday as the BB King Blues Club and Grill saw one of rock’s greatest guitar masters hit the stage in support of he’s new record “Bridge the Gap”. Michael Shenker and company have been on a relentless pace touring the world since Schenker got he’s act together and made a return to the scene in 2011 with “Temple of Rock”, if you enjoyed that record, the new one “Bridge the Gap which is out now is even better!!!. Some tasty treats we’re played off the new one on this cold and bitter night in the big apple. Below you’ll find the exquisite shots courtesy of photographer David Turcotte for MGM. Enjoy the snap shots they tell a story.

Official Press Release

Award-winning, legendary guitarist Michael Schenker will release a brand new studio album entitled “Bridge The Gap” in the UK on Monday December 2nd. Released by in-akustik, the album features Schenker’s band Temple of Rock which consists of ex-Scorpions Herman Rarebell (drums) and Francis Buchholz (bass), plus ex-Rainbow’s Doogie White (vocals) and Wayne Findlay (guitar, keyboards).

The new album features 13 hard-hitting, adrenalin fuelled melodic rock’n’roll songs that showcase Schenker’s distinctive and explosive guitar playing, valiantly underpinned by the ferocious rhythm section of Rarebell and Buchholz, marking the first time Schenker, Rarebell and Buchholz appeared on the same album together since the Scorpions’ 1979 Lovedrive.

Scottish vocalist Doogie White, who co-wrote the album with Schenker, soars across every song, and stamps his enthusiastic personality with every note and phrase. Wayne Findlay adds another dimension to the dynamic, classic Schenker sound with his Dean 7 string guitar and keyboard orchestrations.

Bridge the Gap is a thunderous, explosive collection of brand new songs steeped in shades of dark and light. Musically and lyrically, the new album shows a re-energised guitarist at the top of his game, surrounded by top drawer musicians.

The album was recorded from January to March 2013 at Kidroom Studios, Germany and was produced by Michael Schenker and Michael Voss, and engineered by Voss.
