Accept Posts “Restless And Live” DVD Trailer

The metal icons from Accept will release “Restless And Live” in early 2017. This package will include the entire show Aceept played at Bang Your Head!!! Festival 2015 on Blu-ray/DVD plus two Live CDs with different recordings during the European tour.

“Restless And Live” will be available in stores from January 13th, 2017 via Nuclear Blast. To provide you with a taster of this new release, the band led by axe man Wolf Hoffmann today presents a first trailer. In this clip, Wolf and Accept producer Andy Sneap talk about the set list and new as well as old classics from Accept. Hoffmann comments:

“When you do a live show you obviously have an opener and an ending, and in between you only have a certain amount of songs that you can choose from, because especially at festivals you only get a limited amount of time to play. When we do headline shows we have a little more room to play with and we can pick a few more songs.

“What is interesting to me is, that when you listen to the stuff back to back there doesn’t seem to be any discrepancy between the stuff that we recorded or wrote 30 years ago and our more recent material! And the fans tell me the same thing, it really blends together rather well.”
