‘Touchdown’ is the new album of iconic German heavy metallers U.D.O. ‘Touchdown ‘also marks the musical reunion of singer Udo Dirkschneider and bassist Peter Baltes (ex-ACCEPT) who joined the U.D.O. ranks a few months ago, and to celebrate those happenings, the group have launched a lyric video for new song ‘Fight For The Right,’ which can be found on their new offering. It’s an anti-war track that continues U.D.O.‘s tradition of delivering heavy old-school riffing, this time garnished with a grand, classical music dominated guitar solo. Watch the visualisation by Ingo Spörl (Hard Media)

Watch the previously released lyric video for “Forever Free” below.

U.D.O. drummer, and Udo‘s son, Sven Dirkschneider explains the meaning behind the song: “‘Forever Free’ is supposed to make people not simply believe facts they hear or get shown, for example by media, but to think individually. Of course, we don’t mean that one should question everything. The song shall just express that it’s better to create own opinions about conflicts and other topics one stands for, even when they’re wrong sometimes, than to follow the mass blindly. It’s a musical tribute to our privilege of living in a free world as we luckily can.”
