DIRKSCHNEIDER & THE OLD GANG releasing "Arising" today!

It is not too often that the names of those who are involved, are enough to document the importance of a new project. DATOG, short for Dirkschneider & The Old Gang, consists of Accept / UDO / Dirkschneider frontman Udo Dirkschneider and his long-time companions Peter Baltes (bass; Ex-Accept), Stefan Kaufmann (guitar; Ex-Accept, UDO) and Mathias Dieth (guitar; Sinner, UDO) as well as Udo's son Sven Dirkschneider (drums; UDO, Dirkschneider) and singer Manuela Bibert.

Musically, the new project is in the tradition of its legendary predecessors. Todays release “Arising”, is the best proof that the musicians have not forgotten anything over the last years. The EP will be released as a 12“-vinyl and download.

"It was great fun creating new music with my old companions," says Stefan Kaufmann. “Adding the influences of two young musicians to this was a completely new and great experience for me. And the fact that we were able to win Mathias for the project is the icing on the cake for me."
