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.
