MLTR releases new single to celebrate 25th anniversary

Fans of Michael Learns to Rock can rejoice now as the legendary band has just announced that they will be releasing the 1st of 4 brand new singles over the next 12 months to celebrate their 25th Anniversary!

Says Jascha Richter, the vocalist and lead songwriter in the band;


“We have been travelling to Asia quite often lately in the last few months performing for our fans in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam & the Philippines.  During these shows, we have seen an immense outpouring of love and support from our fans, standing by us these 25 years.  We have all grown up together.  During these trips, we have tried to go everywhere and play for our fans, and  there are still some places we have yet to come and play.  We want to thank you for your patience, and we will definitely come play for you very very soon.  This inspired me to write a new song, and together with the help of a friend, we wrote “I’ll Wait For You” which we can’t wait for our fans to hear it .  So together with our partner Warner Music in Asia, we will release this single on November 6th, 2015.  We have also just shot the music video for the single in a special location, and we are very excited for our fans to see it.”


I’ll Wait For You” will be released simultaneously throughout Asia on November 6th. The music video for the single will also make its debut that same day via their social media properties.  The single will also be made available on all digital retailers and platforms.


“Our recent travels to and in Asia gave us a lot of downtime to write, especially on long haul flights, rest days, and not forgetting jet lag.  One song led to another, and next thing we knew, we had 4 new songs which we are very excited our fans to hear them”.


Michael Learns To Rock is taking a short break from touring to concentrate on completing the new single.   The band will start touring again in December with one show in Bangkok, Thailand (Dec 8th) followed by a series of shows in India (10th till 20th of December).  In early 2016, they will perform in Taipei followed by Indonesia.


Mikkel Lentz (guitarist) has this to add, “We are extremely delighted and excited that we can continue to put out new music for our fans, to continue to give them the music of Michael Learns To Rock which they love.  Nothing gives us more joy than performing these new songs in front of a live audience and have them sing along with us.   We are indeed very lucky and privileged for our fans, that they allow us to keep doing what we love, and that is writing more great music, and coming to play for them in Asia.  We could not ask for more”. ADVT.
