U.D.O. To Release New Album, "Touchdown," August 25.

Added 20 May 2023, 11:59 AM

After touring Australia and Japan as well as kicking off this year's festival season by introducing new bassist Peter Baltes last month, U.D.O. - the iconic heavy metal five-piece led by legendary vocalist Udo Dirkschneider - let the next cat out of the bag today: In between various live activities throughout the year, the band have been very productive having recorded a massive, 13-track album, at various locations. Crafted with producer and mixing engineer Martin "Mattes" Pfeiffer at Redhead Studio (Wilhelmshaven, Germany) and mastered by Stefan Kaufmann at ROXX Studio (Solingen, Germany), »Touchdown« is scheduled to land in the end zone of the heavy metal world on August 25th, 2023 through Atomic Fire Records. The record also includes a guest appearance by violinist Stefan Pintev on the closing track, and bass tracks were recorded by Baltes. Artwork was provided by Martin Häusler who was also responsible for shooting band photos in support of the new album campaign.

First single 'Forever Free' as well as album pre-order options will become available on Friday, June 23rd. Pre-save 'Forever Free' now, here:
