A statement on the band's website January 24, 2010
"It was always our pleasure, our purpose in life, our passion and we were fortunate enough to make music for you - whether it was live on stage or in the studio, creating new songs."
"While we were working on our album these past few months, we could literally feel how powerful and creative our work was - and how much fun we were still having, in the process. But there was also something else. We want to end the Scorpion's extraordinary career on a high note. We are extremely grateful for the fact that we still have the same passion for music we've always had since the beginning. This is why, especially now, we agree we have reached the end of the road."
"We finish our career with an album we consider to be one of the best we have ever recorded and with a tour that will start in our home country Germany and take us to five different continents over the next few years. We want you, our fans, to be the first to know about this. Thank you for your never-ending support throughout the years!"
The thing is: the Scorpions were being compared to Kiss, at least here in Brazil. I've seen some news talking about that and that's why we wanted to know what they think about these kind of comments. But, in fact, we can't say they are just like Kiss. Kiss IS, without a doubt, a comercial band... don't get me wrong, I really like Kiss, I even attended their concert in november last year and it IS amazing, spetacular! But they are comercial, this is what it is. I mean, they are there mainly for the money. Are the Scorpions there for the money? Of course they are, or the Brazilian fans wouldn't need to pay R$600 (about $300) to be able to be in front of the stage, but, there is something more important than that and we can feel it.
.... I just can't imagine the Scorpions being like Kiss. I do believe they are being honest and we must not forget that the Scorpions, after all, are also business and we live in the capitalism system. [/color]
