Accept Premiere “Koolaid” Lyric Video

Accept have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Koolaid.” This track is from their new album “The Rise Of Chaos,” which will be released on August 4.

Wolf Hoffmann commented:

“‘Koolaid’ is a well-known flavored drink and has been mixed with Cyanid by a cult leader who made his congregation drink it: men, women and children. All so everybody could get to heaven. Since then, the phrase ‘drinking the Kool-Aid’ refers to a person or group holding an unquestioned belief, argument, or philosophy without critical examination. That common fact, that people believe everything, when sold right, has intrigued me all my life. For me, being critical and alert all the time, is the key to every decision one makes. That is the main message!”

Accept Reveal “The Rise of Chaos” Cover Art

Accept have revealed the cover art for their new album “The Rise of Chaos.” That effort will be released on August 4.

Wolf Hoffmann commented:

“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 kind of irritating, because it happens on so many levels and no one knows what comes next. The cover is our last stage set – but now clearly destroyed – like….. after a catastrophe!”

As previously announced, the band will celebrate the album’s release with a special show at the Wacken Open Air festival on August 3.

Accept To Release New Album “The Rise of Chaos” In August

Accept have announced that they will be releasing their new album “The Rise of Chaos” on August 4. With this news, the band also revealed that they will be doing a special show at Wacken Open Air the night before the release. You can read more about all that below.

The band posted the following:

The new ACCEPT album (and a special Wacken Open Air show) is coming!

The new record is entitled “The Rise Of Chaos” and will be unleashed on August 4th, 2017. The 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, we 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:

Part 1 will bring fans a classic 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.

And in Part 3, all elements can be seen and heard together: This will make the holy Wacken ground shake by sharing the stage with the orchestra, supported by a complex multimedia show.

This unique concert experience will take place on this year’s “Night To Remember” which makes it even more special. The “Night To Remember” is a celebrated, long-lasting Wacken tradition; for one night of the festival a selection of established bands will do something unique and special with their performance.
