ACCEPT's WOLF HOFFMANN To Guest On WJCU's 'Metal On Metal'

Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann of reformed heavy metal legends ACCEPT will guest on WJCU's "Metal On Metal" radio program on Friday, August 27 at 6:30 p.m. EST. Hoffmann will discuss the band's new lineup, the "Blood Of The Nations" album and forthcoming U.S. tour.

You can listen to the show live at 88.7 FM in the Cleveland, Ohio area or stream it live worldwide at www.wjcu.org.

"As a longtime fan going back several years before the 'Breaker' album, I never believed the band would sound this good when first hearing the news about Mark Tornillo joining," says "Metal On Metal" host Bill Peters. "It's hard to imagine anybody but the legendary Udo Dirkschneider fronting ACCEPT. They tried it with a different singer (David Reece) in 1989 on the 'Eat The Heat' album but it did not go over too well.

"'Blood Of The Nations' is my favorite album of 2010 so far. This is one of the best heavy metal comeback stories in recent memory.

"Everything you have heard from overseas is true.

"ACCEPT are back!"

After debuting their new lineup to a sold-out audience in New York this past May and then traveling to Europe to devastate the masses with shows in 16 different countries in 80 days (including two shows opening for AC/DC), ACCEPT will return to tour the U.S. for the first time in 14 years on a co-headlining tour with KING'S X. ACCEPT's first show will kick off the eleventh annual ProgPower USA festival in Atlanta.

ACCEPT's new album, "Blood Of The Nations", is being released on the following dates:

August 20: Europe (via Nuclear Blast)
September 4: Japan (via Universal)
September 14: North America (via Nuclear Blast)

"Blood Of The Nations" was recorded at Backstage Studio in Derbyshire, England with acclaimed British producer and SABBAT guitarist Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY, MASTERPLAN).
