Accept Announce New Album ‘The Rise of Chaos’, Reveal Cover Artwork

German heavy metal titans Accept have announced their 15th studio album ‘The Rise of Chaos’, slated for release via Nuclear Blast on August 4th 2017. Their fourth release on the label, the album will follow their strong efforts ‘Blood of the Nations’, ‘Stalingrad’ and ‘Blind Rage’, all three of which have established the rejuvenated incarnation of Accept fronted by Mark Tornillo. Check out the cover artwork below, as well as a statement from guitarst Wolf Hoffmann.

“’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!” explains Wolf Hoffmann.

Stay tuned for lots more from the Accept camp in the coming months!
