U.D.O. har rekryterat 21-årige Sven Dirkschneider som bandets nya trummis.
Sven som är son till bandets legendariske sångare Udo Dirkschneider har varit bandets trumtekniker sedan fyra år tillbaka.
U.D.O. kommenterar; “His drumming has simply convinced us most. His style of playing drums is fresh and really grooves heavily. It simply is exactly what we need for U.D.O. We also know that Sven fits perfectly into the band family. He has been working as a drum tech for us for more than four years and we know from several world tours that everyone likes him and gets along with him perfectly.”
Sven Dirkschneider kommenterar; “It is a very special feeling to be a part of my father’s band,” says Sven. “I somehow have always been around with the band since I can remember. But I have never dreamed of being a real band member one day.”
Sven gör sin livedebut med U.D.O. den 6 mars i Würzburg, Tyskland.
Francesco Jovino som var U.D.O’s trummis mellan åren (2004-2014), lämnade bandet den 23 december av privata skäl.
