U.D.O.: New Album Pushed Back To May

The release date of "Rev-Raptor", the new album from U.D.O., the German metal band led by former ACCEPT frontman Udo Dirkschneider, has once again been pushed back — this time to May 20, 2011. The delay was caused by the back problems experienced by guitarist Stefan Kaufmann, the same issue that forced him to quit playing drums for ACCEPT back in the day. Stefan recently received medical treatment for this condition and had recovered enough to have played with the band on November 6 at the Rock Antenne festival at Schwabenhalle in Augsburg.

As previously reported, 17 new songs were written for "Rev-Raptor", with 11 of them set to appear on the final product.

U.D.O.'s last album, "Dominator", entered the official chart in Germany at position No. 27. This marked the highest German chart entry in U.D.O.'s history.
