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 Schenkerís band TEMPLE OF ROCK, which consists of ex-SCORPIONS Herman Rarebell (drums) and Francis Buchholz (bass), plus ex-RAINBOWís Doogie White (vocals) and Wayne Findlay (guitar, keyboards).

Listen to the world premiere of new song "Where The Wild Winds Blow" below.

The new album features 13 hard-hitting, adrenaline fueled melodic rock 'n roll songs that showcase Schenkerís 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.

"I wanted to combine the old with the new," says Schenker. "Thatís why the albumís called Bridge The Gap. With Wayne playing 7 string guitar we created some low, heavy modern sounds. Since I play and experiment on a regular basis, I always have some new, fresh sparks to share when I record a new album. I am inspired from within. Itís infinite like a kaleidoscope."

Continues Schenker - "As former members of the SCORPIONS, Herman, Francis and I have been out of the loop of rock 'n roll for quite a while. Getting together for the first time since the Lovedrive album is an incredible jump. Weíre connecting the past with the present. Weíre bridging the gap."
