MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST Premier "Take Me To The Church" Music Video
August 17, 2018, a month ago
After conquering Japan at the end of this month, Michael Schenker Fest will be touring Europe and the UK in October/November in celebration of their latest studio album release, Resurrection (out now via Nuclear Blast).
Earlier this week, the band released a teaser for their new official video for "Take Me To The Church". The video was shot during a recent trip to St. Petersburg in Russia and can now be seen below.
Michael Schenker comments: "Today we are releasing the new video for ‘Take Me To The Church’, released from Michael Schenker Fest’s debut album Resurrection. We filmed the video in an old church in St Petersburg, Russia as well as at our live show there that same evening. The process was an interesting experience! The fans in Russia were great for the video, too."
Doogie White adds: “‘Take Me To The Church’ was the obvious choice, given the terrific response in the live arena and from fans and reviewers alike, so we decided to bite the bullet and shoot a video. This was the first of three songs Michael and I wrote for the Resurrection album continuing the partnership we started with Temple Of Rock. It is always fascinating to see how others interpret lyrics and bring them to life visually. We also knew that fans would want to see live footage of the line-up, we added some of that too.So once you have watched the video and learned your lines you can sing along when we come to a town or city near you. ALRIGHT...”
