U.D.O. and the Musikkorps der Bundeswehr/Concert Band of the German Armed Forces

Wuppertal/Siegburg – This upcoming summer will hold a musical surprise: Metal legend U.D.O. will publish an album in collaboration with the official Concert Band of the German Armed Forces (Musikkorps der Bundeswehr). The album is entitled `We Are One‘ and will be released on July 17th.

German Rock band U.D.O, including icon Udo Dirkschneider (the original voice of Accept with worldwide hits such as `Balls To The Wall‘, `Metal Heart‘ etc) presents, together with the renowned Concert Band of the German Armed Forces under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Christoph Scheibling, a unique worldwide musical project.

The album contains 15 new songs that will be released through AFM Records /Soulfood Music. All songs have been developed and arranged by U.D.O. together with Christoph Scheibling. The two former Accept musicians  Stefan Kaufmann and Peter Baltes have been part of the songwriting too – as well as the German Armed Forces´ composers Guido Rennert and Alexander Reuber. The title of the album `We Are One‘ has been the driving force for everyone involved.  

Whatever anyone might think about the `rock band meets orchestra‘ collaborations that already exist in the music world, this is far from what `We Are One‘ really is. This is one of the most elaborate concept albums the market has ever seen, the hard rocking sound of U.D.O. has not only been intensified by a 60 piece orchestra, but contains some unique arrangements that underline how characteristic yet versatile U.D.O. is.

This project surprises the listener in every aspect, and is a project with a clear statement: ‘We Are One‘ is a critical reflection of a world in which we all leave our mark, and in which we all have to show responsibility.

The songs on `We Are One‘ are about the different challenges we are currently facing, climate change (`Future is the reason why‘), the worldwide refugee movements (`Live or die‘, `Fridays for Future‘, ‘Children of the world‘) or the pollution of the environment (`Mother Earth‘). With the track `Pandemonium‘, both parties, U.D.O. as well as the German Armed Forces, also take  a clear position against society‘s right wing. The song `Rebel Town‘ is a hymn for a 30 years  reunited Germany.
