The heavy metal pioneers from Accept just finished an extensive European tour and have announced that they are immediately back in the game with a new studio album. This record, entitled “The Rise Of Chaos,” will be unleashed on August 4th, 2017.
The band’s 4th studio release through Nuclear Blast will continue the tradition of its three predecessors – “Blood Of The Nations,” “Stalingrad,” and “Blind Rage” – with grandeur and precision.
And if this wasn’t enough, Accept will celebrate the album’s live premiere exclusively on August 3rd, on the day before its release, as a part of a special show at Wacken Open Air, Germany. The set will consist of three parts, which represent the band’s creative power:
– Part 1 will bring fans a classic Accept set, packed with new and old hits.
– Part 2 will present another premiere: Wolf Hoffmann will be playing tracks from his solo album “Headbangers Symphony” released in 2016, with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra for the very first time. On this record, Wolf has covered famous opuses by composers such as Beethoven, Vivaldi, and Mozart, in a metal guise.
– Part 3 features all elements seen and heard together: Accept will make the holy Wacken ground shake by sharing the stage with the orchestra, supported by a complex multimedia show.
Wolf Hoffmann stated: “It’s always impressive to see how bands take this evening seriously and how much love the artists and the organising team put into their work to get a varied result. It’s a great tradition which underlines and documents the top-notch level of the international rock community like nothing else. We also want to present something that Accept has never done before, we hope we can give something really special to the fans.”
Thomas Jensen, organizer of Wacken Open Air, comments: “Accept have been and are still a very important part of Germany’s heavy metal scene. We’re really looking forward to having them with us once more. With this epic concept, the Thursday evening will be one to remember for sure.”
