German heavy metal icon Udo Dirkschneider will turn 70 years old on April 6, 2022.

He is THE constant among the German metal scene. Born in Wuppertal during the post-war period, when heavy metal hadn’t even been envisioned, he is one of the decisive characters who helped shape the genre so significantly over the course of about five decades. Originally becoming world-famous as a founding member of Accept, he continues to steadily expand upon his international successes with his U.D.O. and Dirkschneider outfits. Dirkschneider has remained true to himself over the years, and he has now decided that it’s time for another change in his career: today, U.D.O. announces his official signing to Atomic Fire Records.

Udo states, “As a globally active artist, it is very important for me to work with our respective partners in a trusting and highly professional way since large parts of our careers depend directly on their work. But, a friendly relationship and fun in day-to-day cooperation are just as important. With my U.D.O. and DIRKSCHNEIDER bands, I have always paid attention to long-term partnerships, which really did not make the decision to change labels again after nearly 20 years of cooperation with AFM Records easy for me. I would like to specifically thank Jochen Richert and his team once again for the very trusting and personal cooperation over the last two decades!
