Smashing Scorpions

(PR) SCORPIONS, Germany's most successful international music export, are poised to "sting" once again and are planning a frontal attack on the musical artery of rock fans all over the globe with their new album, HUMANITY - HOUR 1. Thirty five years after the release of their debut album, LONESOME CROW, SCORPIONS believe they have reached a new creative high in their impressive career. They plan to prove it with the release of album #21 on August 28 (New Door Records/UMe).

Smashing Pumpkins singer/guitarist Billy Corgan makes a special appearance on the album as a featured guest on "The Cross."

The band--Klaus Meine (vocals), Rudolf Schenker (rhythm guitars), Matthias Jabs (lead guitars), James Kottak (drums) and Pawel Maciwoda (bass)-enlisted acclaimed songwriter/producer Desmond Child (Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, KISS) and producer James Michael to work behind the boards on the album, which was recorded at several Los Angeles studios. "Desmond is a fabulous visionary who took us to musical levels we had never reached before," declares lead guitarist Jabs.
