Accept Announces Festival Appearances

Accept is gearing up to release "Blind Rage" worldwide on the 15th of August. Nuclear Blast has also now issued the following announcement about upcoming festival appearances by the band:

"There is a storm brewing! The message of the international press represents an unanimous opinion: Accept's 'Best of all albums ever!' Accept is a phenomenon. The current news of success for the new album sets the bar high and demonstrate in a powerful manner that Accept does not only belong to the elite of the heavy metal scene over decades, but actually are on the fast lane.

"A big masterpiece entails big moments. In September, Accept starts the 'Blind Rage World Tour Part 1.' Prior to the world tour, Accept exclusively enters the stage for two mega events in Europe.

"Wacken 2014/Germany and Woodstock 2014/Poland are certainly the biggest open air festivals in the world in their genre and therefore a worthy stage for Accept.

"Three big brands cross their way on one weekend; each taken separately a highlight with characteristics like: tradition, fan solidarity, and even more up to day as it has ever been before.

"Accept is going to play exclusively these two festivals in front of a gigantic crowd and the band will give the people at the Wacken and Woodstock festival an unforgettable live experience. We are looking forward to this hot weekend full of superlatives in August." More...

Dave Blass Comments On Accept Video Shoot

Accept will release new studio album "Blind Rage" on August 15th and last week the band revealed the video clip for the "Stampede" single, which can be seen below.

Now the video's director Dave Blass, an Emmy nominated production designer and director, reports from the shooting:

“It’s 4 in the morning and I am in a van with one of the hottest metal bands in the world Accept. But right now, they are one of the coldest metal bands in the world because it’s -¬-7 degrees out and we had to rush back into the van to warm up. It was so cold that they couldn’t hold their guitar pics, and the rocky peaks they were climbing over still had a slick layer of ice on them. When we scouted the location 3 weeks ago it was a nice toasty 33 and we were worried that they were going to roast in the sun. We would all love that heat right about now.

"This is the third video that my team and I have done with Accept going back to 'Teutonic Terror'. Wolf Hoffmann and I had met years before their reunion and I had told him that if they ever wanted to do a video that we should get together. With 'Teutonic Terror' we wanted to go with a Classic Metal video. No story, no visual effects, just the band with brand new lead singer Mark Tornillo, some fire and Wolf doing his guitar solo up on a tank. I wanted to keep it about the music, but with some iconic imagery which is why we closed the video on the twin burning flying V guitars that was a call back to the »Restless And Wild« album. Next we tried to shake it up with 'Pandemic', which we shot the morning after the 14 hour 'Teutonic Terror' shoot.

"The band was about to embark on a massive worldwide tour, so I knew I wouldn’t be able to get them for another shoot. We had no concept for the video when we shot it, we just did a clean capture of the individual band members on Green Screen, and knew we could do a wide variety of things. I didn’t want to do the standard deal of putting the band on a virtual set that looks like a cheap video game, so we later came up with the concept to make the video look like you were reading a graphic novel, which wasn’t something that had been done before.

"The overall theme of the Accept videos have always been about the band and the music. No matter how many shows the band does, there are fans all around the world who never get a chance to see them perform, and these videos fill that void. Even so, you still have to mix it up a bit. Even tanks and fire get boring after a bit. So here we are, freezing our asses off in the high desert of California at the Devil’s Punchbowl, a rock formation that looks like it’s from another world. It is actually. It’s right around the corner from where Captain Kirk fought the guy in the green lizard suit in the old Star Trek TV series. More...

Accept Announces U.S. Shows

Accept will release new album "Blind Rage" on August 15th via Nuclear Blast Records.

The influential group's 14th studio album was produced by audio engineer Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Napalm Death, Opeth) and is the follow-up to 2012's "Stalingrad" (reviewed here).

The first single from the album, titled "Stampede," will precede the full-length release on July 11th, available digitally and as a limited vinyl edition. The band also recently filmed a video for "Stampede," which will make its online premiere this summer.

"Whatever we do on record, it's there for eternity," says Accept guitarist Wolf Hoffmann. "If you do something great it's not something people throw away tomorrow. Songs we wrote 30 years ago are still loved by fans today. That teaches you to be careful with what you release and make sure you like it yourself. With Blind Rage, we have a collection of songs with the classic Accept feel, and -- as always -- there's an overriding theme of aggression and rage in our music. Otherwise, it wouldn't be metal."
