U.D.O. - the band created and fronted by former Accept frontman Udo Dirkschneider - issued the new single "Rising High," which can be heard in the player above. The song is the first taste of the new album "Steelfactory," which is set to drop on August 31st via AFM Records/Soulfood Music.
After honoring the classic Accept songs live with his other project Dirkschneider over the last couple of years, it’s definitely about time to release a new U.D.O. studio album. Pre-order the album now over at this location.
The songs on "Steelfactory" are clearly influenced by the past Dirkschneider shows - the simple straightness of the anthem-like songs make it a timeless record. With its earthy handmade sound – with the help of danish producer Jacob Hanson (e.g. Volbeat) - "Steelfactory" catches the spirit of the age perfectly!
