Accept ready to launch 'Blind Rage'

Heavy metal legends Accept will release their 14th studio album, ‘Blind Rage,’ Aug. 15 via Nuclear Blast Records. Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Napalm Death, Arch Enemy) produced the follow-up to 2012's ‘Stalingrad.’

     The first single from Blind Rage, "Stampede", is already available.

 

       "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," he concludes.

        Built around the songwriting nucleus of Hoffmann (guitars) and bassist Peter Baltes, Accept's beginnings can be traced back to the late 1970's. The German band played a pivotal role in the development of speed and thrash metal, and along with Judas Priest and Iron Maiden has had an undeniable impact on the global metal scene.

                  

    Track listing:

 

     1.) Stampede

     2.) Dying Breed   

     3.) Dark Side of My Heart     

     4.) Fall of the Empire   

     5.) Trail of Tears   

     6.) Wanna Be Free   

     7.) 200 Years      

     8.) Bloodbath Mastermind      

     9.) From the Ashes We Rise

   10.) The Curse

   11.) Final Journey 

     Accept will promote ‘Blind Rage’ with a European headlining tour kicking off on Sept. 19 in Copenhagen. Just prior to the Euro tour launch, the band will perform a series of exclusive US live performances including shows in Las Vegas (Sept. 13) and NYC (Sept. 14) as well as a show at the historic Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills (Sept. 12) where Accept will be joined by special guests Metal Church and Raven, for what promises to be the most metal of evenings.

       Sept. 11    Solana Beach, Calif.,   Belly Up Tavern (w/ Metal Church)

     Sept. 12    Beverly Hills     Saban Theatre (w/ Metal Church, Raven)

     Sept. 13    Las Vegas        Count's Vamp'd (ACCEPT only)

     Sept. 14    New York, NY         Gramercy Theatre (w/ Raven)

In addition to Hoffman and Baltes, Accept features Hermann Frank (guitars), Stefan Schwarzmann (drums), and vocalist Mark Tornillo.
