They debuted their new line-up to a sold-out audience in New York in May and then devastated the masses in 16 different countries in Europe in 80 days and played two shows opening for AC/DC.  Now, Germany’s legendary metal band ACCEPT will return to tour the U.S. for the first time in 14 years on a co-headlining tour with King’s X in support of their new album, Blood Of The Nations, scheduled for North American release on September 14th.  The tour will kick-off with an appearance at the eleventh annual ProgPower USA festival in Atlanta, Georgia.


Guitarist & songwriter Wolf Hoffman checks in about the band’s time in Europe & their upcoming trek through the U.S.:


“Believe me, the European tour was boot camp, but we loved every minute of it!  Twelve months ago, there was nothing on the horizon that would have made us believe we would be on the stages of the world again as ACCEPT… and here we are!   [New lead vocalist] Mark Tornillo inspires us to get it all out in a way we have not been challenged before.  We can’t wait to be on stage with him!!!!   He is the new kid on the block and he is the reason we are back again.  It is such a relief, such vitamin shot!!!  And if we could, we would never stop!!!”
