Three years after announcing plans to retire, and just weeks after completing their farewell tour, The Scorpions have revealed plans to continue on as a band.
Front man Klaus Meine explains, "As the emotion built, not retiring became a gradual decision. It's one thing to say, 'This is going to be the end of the Scorpions' and another to do it. Our 'Sting In The Tail' album  was such a success that a whole new generation of fans joined the party. It was amazing. And you know that with all the best parties it's sometimes hard to find the door?"
He also confirmed that there are plans for a new Scorpions album, featuring leftovers from the early 1980s, saying "We started that over a year ago. It will be material that was never finished; songs with pure Scorpions DNA from a very exciting time. Once we close the book on the crazy touring schedule that's something we'll pick up again."
