Accept Recruit Dangerous Toys Singer Jason McMaster For Jim Thorpe, PA Show

Accept will be joined by vocalist Jason McMaster (Dangerous Toys) during their October 20 show at Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe, PA. He will be filling in for Mark Tornillo, who is currently suffering from a “virus infection.”

The band issued the following statement:

“Update for Accept show in Penns Peak 20th October

Accept announce Jason McMaster from Dangerous Toys and Watch Tower, to rock the stage with them tonight!!

As Mark is still on the road to recovery, he has been advised to rest a little more before hitting the stage for the remainder of the current US tour. ( We’ve sent him all the soup on earth 😉)

However, Accepts friend and outrageously brilliant Metal/ Rock singer, Jason McMaster, has been awesome enough to step in until Mark is back….for what will now be a one of a kind, unique Accept show!

History in the making!!

Jason is extremely familiar with Accepts vintage material, is a world class lead singer with spectacular stage presence and the guys are totally fired up to give you a sensational performance!

See you there!!
It’s gonna be a unique and thrilling show!

We thank you again for all the kind wishes regarding Marks health. He is very grateful and says they help tremendously!”

Accept Cancel Vineland, NJ Show

Accept have revealed that singer Mark Tornillo is currently suffering from a “virus infection.” As a result, the band’s October 18 show in Vineland, NJ has been cancelled.

The group commented:

“Dear fans,

As you might have heard, we had to modify our show in Toronto, Canada on Oct. 16th.

Our singer Mark had developed severe vocal strain over the last week due to a virus infection (not Covid!).

Being the trooper that he is, he pushed through three shows in a row, but the doctors now insist he take a break , otherwise the entire rest of the tour would be in jeopardy, as would his voice and health.

This morning, with the heaviest of hearts we had to make the difficult decision to call off the concert on Oct. 18th in Vineland, NJ.

This is so Mark has time to rest and recover, and we can make sure we can finish the rest of the tour in full force.

We understand the disappointment for our fans in Vineland, and we share this too.
We apologise from the bottom of our hearts.

We strive to put on the best show possible, for every show and want to give you all we can.

Thank you for understanding, and we’ll see you soon at a later date!

Stay metal,

Ex-Accept Singer Udo Dirkschneider Says He Will “Never” Work With Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann Again

During a recent appearance on the “Scars And Guitars” podcast, ex-Accept singer Udo Dirkschneider opened up about his relationship with the band’s guitarist Wolf Hoffmann. Dirkschneider had the following to say when asked if he has had any contact with Hoffman:

“Never. And I don’t wanna have any contact with him… I’m really good friends now again with [former ACCEPT bassist] Peter Baltes; he did all the bass guitars on [my new] cover album [‘My Way’], for example. I still have a good relationship with [ex-ACCEPT drummer] Stefan Kaufmann. Over the years, he was the guitar player in U.D.O. [and] he was producing U.D.O. and stuff like that. And the only guy I don’t wanna talk to — let’s say it this way — is Wolf. There’s a lot of reasons why. I wish him all the best. [He’s] a great guitar player anyway, but for me to work with him again — never.”

Accept Sign Worldwide Deal With Napalm Records

Accept have signed a new worldwide deal with Napalm Records. Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann commented:

“I am really looking forward to working with a renowned, independent and strong label like Napalm Records. There are hard-working metallers at work here; that suits us. We are convinced that together we will reach the next level.”

Napalm Records CEO Thomas Caser added:

“We are extremely proud and excited to welcome Accept — an absolute heavy metal heavyweight to the Napalm Records family! Together we will drive this steel machine with full power and are very much looking forward to further musical milestones.”

Accept Postpone European Tour To 2023

Accept have postponed their headlining European tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The trek will now take place in 2023 with new dates set to be announced soon.

Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann commented:

“As much as we want to, the current COVID situation just doesn’t allow us to go forward with this 2022 tour. It’s a super-tough call, but we have no choice but to postpone once again. We wanted to play this tour badly. We had a killer setlist prepared with lots of new songs from the ‘Too Mean to Die’ album. I’m very sorry for the fans and of course everybody in the band is very disappointed. But hey, life goes on… Please stay safe, stay metal and stay ‘too mean to die’! We’ll see you soonest!”

Promoter Gerald Wilkes of Continental Concerts added:

“The Accept tour was planned through a total of 16 countries with very different regional infection situations, which are currently changing very quickly and therefore are incalculable for all involved. The legal requirements vary from country to country — even often from city to city. It all looked so promising a few months ago, but the situation right now simply doesn’t allow it. The tour is confirmed for 2023 and tickets remain valid.”

In other news, Accept have also released a digital live single for their song “The Undertaker.” You can check that out below. Furthermore, Nuclear Blast will also be releasing a silver limited edition vinyl pressing of the band’s latest album “Too Mean To Die” on February 18.
