U.D.O. Parts Ways With Drummer FRANCESCO JOVINO

Drummer Francesco Jovino has left U.D.O., the German metal band led by former ACCEPT frontman Udo Dirkschneider, for personal reasons. The group is hoping to find a permanent replacement in time for its next world tour, which is scheduled to kick off in early March.

U.D.O.'s new studio album, "Decadent", will be released in Europe on January 26 via AFM.

With recordings having taken place in Udo's current home, Spanish island Ibiza, and also at Redhead Audio Productions in Wilhelmshaven, this new album looks set to be yet another great statement of intent from a rock idol whose place in rock history is already well cemented.

U.D.O.'s most recent studio CD, "Steelhammer", was released on May 24, 2013 via AFM Records. The effort was produced by Dirkschneider and Fitty Wienhold.

U.D.O.'s latest concert DVD, "Steelhammer - Live From Moscow", came out in May. The first live release of U.D.O.'s new lineup (with a Russian bandmember) was filmed on September 28, 2013 at the Arena Hall in Moscow to highlight the "Steelhammer" tour.

The band put together an exceptional setlist, including many classics that haven't been played for a long time, fan favorites and tracks from "Steelhammer".

"Steelhammer - Live From Moscow" was made available as DVD/2-CD, Bluray/2-CD and triple-vinyl in Russian national colors (tricolor).

U.D.O. in 2012 announced the addition of guitarist Andrey Smirnov to the group's ranks. He replaced Stefan Kaufmann, who left the group for health reasons.
