German rockers Scorpions are said to be planning a fall tour of the United States. All the details have not been released yet but supposedly, the plans are almost complete.
The band’s new album, Humanity: Hour 1 appears to be doing well on European charts and it appears the album is currently only available here in the U.S. as an import, which means it could take weeks to get your hands on it here.
I have heard a few cuts from the new album and it sounds to me like classic Scorpions and I think that’s a good thing. I liked every cut I have heard so far.
I’m not a huge fan of ballads generally, but I would have to say Scorpions is one of my favorite ballad bands. For me, they just have a way with that style and I hope they have an offering or two on the new album for Scorpions ballad fans.
