Udo Dirkschneider teams up w/ two former Accept members for video for single “Where The Angels Fly”
Former Accept frontman Udo Dirkschneider has teamed up with two of his former Accept bandmates — bassist Peter Baltes and guitarist Stefan Kaufmann — to release a video for the song “Where The Angels Fly.” The trio is joined by Udo Dirkschneider‘s son Sven on drums and Manuela Markewitz on vocals.
The following message was posted on Dirkschneider‘s Facebook page earlier today (with slight edits):
“Three of the former Accept mates are reunited again!
After having released our new record WE ARE ONE successfully, we are proud to present a very special video:
“Where the Angels Fly“.
It also contains another aspect of the “We Are One” philosophy: for the first time for ages, Udo Dirkschneider and Peter Baltes are singing together again on one song! Next to them, also Stefan Kaufmann is involved in the song and in the songwriting.”
Baltes was in Accept from 1976 to 1989, 1992 to 1997, 2005 and 2009 to 2018. Kaufmann played drums in Accept from 1979 to 1989 and from 1992 to 1994. Dirkschneider was in Accept from 1976 to 1987, 1992 to 1997 and 2005. All three of them have been in Accept for longer than any of the current Accept members except guitarist Wolf Hoffmann who has been in all incarnations of the group since 1976.
