U.D.O. RELEASES MAN AND MACHINE ON BREAKER/SPV

COLOGNE, Germany - U.D.O., led by the former voice of Accept Udo Dirkschneider, has unleashed its eighth studio recording, Man and Machine, through Breaker/SPV.

“This album is made after along time by the whole band,” said Dirkschneider. “The sound is fresh and straight forward.”

Man and Machine includes a much talked about duet that pairs Dirkschneider's unmistakable voice with the equally unmistakable voice of German metal queen Doro Pesch.

"The idea was not new,” Dirkschneider said. “We had this idea already when we did the album Objection Overruled with Accept in 1993, and when we had the ballad for Man and Machine, Stefan Kaufmann came up with the idea again.”

As frontman for Accept, Dirkschneider defined a sound and an era of German metal, beginning with Accept's self-titled debut in 1978. Nine years later, the singer would go on to form U.D.O. and release the classic albums Animal House, Faceless World, Mean Machine, No Limits, Solid, and Timebomb. U.D.O. was put on temporary hiatus between 1992 and 1996 while Accept reformed for three albums, but soon returned with Holy.

With seven albums under their belts, Dirkschnieder and his crew then put together the ultimate U.D.O. live recording, Live From Russia. The double CD features the best of the U.D.O. catalog, including Animal House, They Want War, Heart of Gold, Independence Day, and Holy, as well as exclusive and previously unavailable live versions of Accept classics like "I'm a Rebel," "Winter Dreams," "Turn Me On," "TV War," and "Heaven is Hell."

Having already completed a European headlining tour in support of Man and Machine, U.D.O. is now preparing for the summer European festivals. This itinerary includes headlining slots at Lillehammer, Norway's Olymia Park/Ice Hockey Arena, Crete's National Stadium Open Air Festival, and Rieneck, Germany's Rock am Tummel.

The entire U.D.O. catalog and releases from Accept have been reissued through SPV USA. Accept's Restless & Wild, released June 11th, is the most recent reissue.
