U.D.O. release new single and bonus track “Wilder Life”

U.D.O. release new single and bonus track “Wilder Life”, off upcoming ‘best of’ compilation “The Legacy”, out on 18th November on AFM Records.

Rounding off a special anniversary year for the band (35 years since foundation of the group as well as launching the debut album “Animal House”) and its fearless leader & voice Udo Dirkschneider (who turned 70 this April), November 18th 2022 will see iconic heavy metal act U.D.O. release a career-spanning ‘best of’ compilation, entitled “The Legacy”, via AFM Records.

“The Legacy” proves that U.D.O. produced classics throughout their entire career. Their longevity and quality of output is almost unmatched within the heavy music scene. With such an impressive back catalogue gathered within the past three and a half decades, it’s simply an impossible task to compile a double CD of material and satisfy everyone, but, The Legacy is by far the most extensive retrospective the band has ever released. Featuring 33 tracks overall and including songs from all U.D.O. studio albums, the compilation also includes 4 rare bonus songs which a lot of U.D.O.‘s loyal followers will hear for the first time.
