The first Michael Schenker Fest studio album, 'Resurrection', has just been released on Nuclear Blast and it's already a major contender for Album Of The Year 2018.

The album was recorded alongside producer Michael Voss-Schoen and Michael was joined by the three legendary MSG singers, Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet and Robin McAuley with Michael Schenker's Temple Of Rock frontman Doogie White also making a major contribution.
