Scorpions Announce Retirement

The Scorpions have announced their plans for retirement after the release of their forthcoming album and tour.  The news was suggested by their manager and shocked the band initially, but it appears that they can now see the financial benefits of turning their next tour into a retirement tour.  Here is an excerpt from their latest interview:

Noisecreep: First off, why the hell are you guys packing it in?

Schenker: We were sitting in the studio after we finished tracking "Sting of the Tail", and we realized something rather quickly. We heard these songs together, and it just captured the essence of the '80s SCORPIONS sound. It sounds like a combination of the best material on the "Lovedrive" and "Crazy World" albums. The songs have that feel and spirit. Then our manager had the idea to finish the band on a high note with this record. At first, we thought he was joking. (laughter) But then we noticed he was completely being serious. And it turns out, he was right.

The rest of the interview can be read HERE.
