After just finishing a lengthy European tour, heavy metal pioneers Accept are proud to announce their new studio album The Rise of Chaos. The album will be released on August 4th through Nuclear Blast. This will be the group's fourth studio record.
To help premiere the new record, Accept will hold a special show at Wacken Open Air, Germany on August 3rd. The set will consist of three different parts:
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 last year. The album was recorded 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.
With part 3, all elements can be 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 commented; "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, the organizer of Waken Open Air added, "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."
