FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Scorpions To Sting Fans with New Studio Album Unbreakable

First Sanctuary Release for Germany's Heavy Metal Titans

Scorpions will release their new studio album Unbreakable on Sanctuary Records on June 22, 2004. Unbreakable is the band's 20th album.

Vocalist Klaus Meine, guitarist Rudolf Schenker, guitarist Matthias Jabs, drummer James Kottak and new bass guitarist Pawel Maciwoda have created an album that's a return to form for the band. Unbreakable is, quite simply, a lethal dose of Scorpions.

The 13 songs on Unbreakable include: "New Generation," "Love 'Em or Leave 'Em," "Deep and Dark," "Borderline," "Blood Too Hot," "Maybe I Maybe You," "Someday Is Now," "My City My Town," "Through My Eyes," "Can You Feel It," "This Time," "She Said" and "Remember the Good Times."

For 35 years Scorpions have excited the music world with their distinctive style of heavy metal. The band formed in Hannover, Germany, and it remains the only German band to achieve worldwide success. Early albums such as Lonesome Crow, Fly to the Rainbow, In Trance, Virgin Killer, Taken By Force and the double live Tokyo Tapes established a core fan base. Lovedrive and Animal Magnetism rumbled toward mainstream consciousness but Blackout surged into the Top Ten on the strength of the hit "No One Like You." It was the next album, Love at First Sting, that shot Scorpions to superstar status; the songs were remarkable. "Rock You Like a Hurricane" remains an all-time classic anthem and other notable cuts include "Bad Boys Running Wild," "Coming Home," "Big City Nights" and "Still Loving You."

The gargantuan success of Love at First Sting was followed by the double live World Wide Live and Savage Amusement. The next album, Crazy World, yielded the massive global smash hit ballad "Wind of Change," inspired by the fall of the Berlin Wall. Subsequent albums like Face the Heat, Pure Instinct, Eye II Eye and Moment of Glory (with orchestral backing from the Berlin Philharmonic) and Acoustica reinforced Scorpions' stature as one of the most important and successful heavy metal bands of all time.

In addition to the Sanctuary release of Unbreakable this year, a brand-new three-CD box set titled Box of Scorpions was just issued by Hip-O/Mercury/UMe. This is the first-ever U.S.-released box set from the band and it includes 51 digitally remastered songs from 20 albums on multiple labels spanning the band's career from 1972 to 2002. All the major hits, fan favorites and lesser-known standouts are included. Box of Scorpions features a photo-packed deluxe booklet complete with an essay and song-by-song commentary from the band members.

Scorpions will embark on yet another world tour in 2004 to promote Unbreakable.
