Following the tremendous success of ACCEPT's comeback album, "Blood Of The Nations", and accompanying world tour which consisted of more than 180 shows around the globe the reformed heavy metal legends have now withdrawn from the stage to start work on their next CD.
The band is currently writing material for its new LP, which will be released in the spring of 2012 and will once again be helmed by British producer Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, EXODUS, NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY).
Commented ACCEPT guitarist Wolf Hoffman: "ACCEPT and Andy Sneap have the perfect synergy. This was so clear with 'Blood Of The Nations' and we are excited to continue on that path. Andy is not only an amazing and prolific producer but also a very good friend who has long become a member of the ACCEPT family."
ACCEPT's July 15 performance at this year's edition of the Bang Your Head!!! festival in Balingen, Germany filmed for a future DVD release. The concert marked the band's return to a five-piece format after the group spent a couple of months touring as a quartet due to the fact that guitarist Herman Frank suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung in a stage fall on May 6 in San Antonio.
"Blood Of The Nations" was released in North America on September 14, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records. Recorded at Backstage Studio in Derbyshire, England with acclaimed British producer and SABBAT guitarist Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY, MASTERPLAN), the CD marked the debut of the band's latest addition, vocalist Mark Tornillo (ex-TT QUICK).
ACCEPT 2011 is:
Wolf Hoffmann: Guitar
Peter Baltes: Bass
Herman Frank: Guitar
Mark Tornillo: Vocals
Stefan Schwarzmann: Drums
