Udo Dirkschneider: New U.D.O. Album in 2018

Former Accept vocalist Udo Dirkschneider will release his upcoming album in August 2018. For the past two years, the singer has been revisiting Accept’s catalog with his latest project Dirkschneider; however, the forthcoming album will be released under the U.D.O. moniker.

In a recent interview with Spark, Dirkschneider spoke about his decision to reactivate U.D.O: “Some people came up with this idea, you know, ‘Why aren’t you going to continue under Dirkschneider?’ No, we are working on the 16th U.D.O. album. We have a big following also with U.D.O. It may make the people confused. Dirkschneider continued for nearly two years for Accept songs. I can’t imagine coming up with an album called Dirkschneider. People would get confused. We discussed this already and then we said ‘We’ll definitely continue under U.D.O.'”
