New Accept Album ‘The Rise of Chaos’ + Special Wacken Performance
ACCEPT will release their new album “The Rise Of Chaos” on August 4th, 2017 via Nuclear Blast. To celebrate the release, the band will play a ‘special show’ at Wacken Open Air, Germany, the day before, on August 3rd.
The Wacken set will consist of three parts:
Part 1 – A classic set, packed with new and old hits.
Part 2 – 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. Wolf covers famous opuses by composers such as Beethoven, Vivaldi, and Mozart, in a metal guise.
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.
Wolf Hoffmann stated: “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.”
“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,” stated Thomas Jensen, organiser of Wacken Open Air.
