UDO signs with Atomic Fire Records and plans ‘special album’ for its 70th anniversary
YOU DO, the german metal band led by original I ACCEPT leader Udo Dirkschneider, signed with Atomic fire registers.
You do Says: “As a globally active artist, it is very important for me to work with our respective partners in a confident and highly professional manner, as a large part of our career directly depends on their work. But a friendly and fun day-to-day everyday cooperation is just as important. YOU DO and DIRKSCHNEIDER groups, I have always been attentive to long-term partnerships, which really did not make the decision to change labels again after almost 20 years of cooperation with AFM files easy for me. I would like to thank in particular Jochen Richert and his team once again for the very confident and personal cooperation over the past two decades! But when the opportunity arose to take a new course with the new Atomic fire registers label and experimenting with new inspirations, I grabbed it right away and I never let go. The opportunity to work with an experienced and successful team at national and international level, made up of longtime friends and companions, was too tempting. The team and the concept as well as Atomic fire registers‘the professional installation all over the world has completely convinced me and I look with great optimism and happiness to the future and cooperation with Markus Wosgien, Markus Staiger and Florian Milz and their team. “
Atomic fire registers CEO Markus Wosgien says: “I was nine years old when I first listened to a real metal song, a live version of “Heart of metal” and it immediately hooked me. That day, heavy metal became the center of my life. I started spending all my pocket money on I ACCEPTbefore discovering other groups. I ACCEPT were the ultimate band and the definition of heavy metal – it just had to sound like that. i was working with YOU DO in support of their ‘Master Cutter’ album during my stay at AFM files, but I even had the chance to cooperate with I ACCEPT for four feature films after their reunion in 2009. To welcome Udo Dirkschneider at Atomic fire registers is kind of a chivalrous distinction for us. He is an icon and a former metalworker who still has a lot to say. We are happy to release an exceptional album around its 70th anniversary and look forward to all of these YOU DO hits that are yet to come. “
