German rock icons Scorpions have released the lead single “Peacemaker” from their upcoming album Rock Believer.
Rock Believer, scheduled to be released on February 25, 2022, is the band’s 19th album.
“Peacemaker” is described as a musical foretaste of the new album that promises to forge an arc between yesterday and tomorrow.
Even at 50 years into their musical career, there is still enough gas in the tank to keep going, as the band sings, “Let’s play it louder play it hard / Laid back and a little dark / Give me a dirty riff my friend / There’s gotta be more gas in the tank.”
Scorpions singer Klaus Meine, who wrote the lyrics to the song, says, “At a time when so many people have died and are still dying of COVID, from devastating wars and other senseless crimes, it makes you feel that the undertaker must be working overtime. In a peaceful world after the pandemic, it will be time for the peacemaker to rule… that’s an image that really appeals to me”.
In March and April 2022, the rock band is set to perform at the Planet Hollywood Resorts & Casino in Las Vegas as part of its residency, followed by a European tour scheduled to kick off with a number of shows in Germany in June 2022 – with more concerts on a global level in the pipeline.
