Accept sign with Nuclear Blast

After a long hiatus, the German based Metal legends Accept have completed work on a new album, with Mark Tornillo – formerly lead singer of TT Quick – brought into the fold as the new vocalist.

Born in the eighties, Accept quickly set about conquering the world with their loud proud heavy metal: Gold status in the USA, top chart positions in Europe and Japan and tours with the likes of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Mötley Crüe, Ozzy Osbourne and KISS led to huge success across the globe. Accept truly created their own legend.

In 2010, 14 years later, Accept is about to release their 15th album “Blood Of The Nations“. The record will be published worldwide by the highly respected record label Nuclear Blast.

Quotation by Gaby Hoffmann and Deville Schober / Accept Management:

“We really appreciate the cooperation with Nuclear Blast. Accept finally found a powerful partner to create a big international impact.

Nuclear Blast got a lot of experience and the power to push Accept into new dimensions!“

Quotation Andy Siry / Labelmanager Nuclear Blast:

“We are very proud to declare the signing of Accept! Like a lot of people out there, employees of Nuclear Blast have grown up with songs like ‘Restless & Wild’, ‘Breaker’ and ‘Balls To The Wall’. It‘s an honour to us! Accept found a new voice with Mark Tornillo and working together with successful producer Andy Sneap will cause an amazing record – a gift for the fans out there! This album will become a milestone in the history of Accept!“

The new record “Blood Of The Nations“ will be released all over the world in the late summer of 2010. Andy Sneap, the international renowned UK producer (Megadeth, Bullet For My Valentine, Machine Head, Exodus, Killswitch Engage) produced “Blood Of The Nations“. 14 songs – proof of a new ACCEPT decade, brutal and melodic at the same time- in a classical style, but with a modern sound!

US-European special tour in May 2010 confirmed!

The band will also play a special one-off show as a “thank you“ for the fans – all concerts will be played in a private setting, close to the audience as a reference to the early rock‘n roll shows of Accept.

26. May – Islington O2 Academy – London, UK
