Heavy metal pioneers ACCEPT are back in the game with a new studio album! The 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.
Today, the band releases their first album trailer, which was filmed at the recent ACCEPT media day in Hamburg on June 13th. A press conference took place on the day featuring Wolf Hoffmann and Holger Hübner, the WACKEN Festival organiser, both looking ahead to ACCEPT’s exclusive upcoming Wacken performance. [More info on ACCEPT’s Special Wacken Show – below.] To wrap up the day, Wolf signed the infamous ‘Golden Book’ which belongs to the Hard Rock café in Hamburg.
Vinyl single tracklist:
A: The Rise Of Chaos
B: Dark Side Of My Heart (live @ BYH 2015)
“»The Rise Of Chaos« is something I have been thinking about often. Wherever we go – there is some hidden as well as some visible destruction and it kind of changes the world we know. What was there today – can be gone tomorrow and it’s somehow irritating, because it happens on so many levels and no one knows what comes next. The cover portrays our last stage set-up – but now clearly “destroyed” – like… after a catastrophe”, explains Wolf Hoffmann.
