Wolf Hoffmann hopes to have new Accept album ready for July or August 2017
Long-time Accept guitarist Wolf Hoffmann was recently interviewed by Metal Shock Finland senior manager Alison Booth and stated the following about the new upcoming Accept studio album, which will be the fourth consecutive Accept album with producer Andy Sneap at the helm:
“This is the fourth time in a row with the same producer, it’s a world record for Accept for sure! Every time we work together it turns out fantastic, we love what the final result is. We have a great working relationship, so why change it if it works, right?“
“The only thing I can tell you is that it feels as Accept as ever. It feels maybe a slightly bit heavier for now, but these things are always hard to say when you’re in the middle of it. Man, it’s gonna sound like Accept as always, there’s not gonna be any weird surprises – we’re not gonna go soft, we’re not gonna go jazz! We’re really just trying to get better at what we already do.
We’re trying our best to get it done in time for next year, July or August. We’ve got a bunch of basic tracks done, a lot of vocals are done, so we’re looking pretty good at this point.”

Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Accept‘s last studio album Blind Rage: “There is only one band I can think of that, 25 to 30 years after its ’80s heyday, is producing better music today than during that stellar period. Since reforming with diminutive but powerful lead vocalist Mark Tornillo less than five years ago, Accept has produced not one, not two, but now three absolutely jaw dropping CDs of pure heavy metal bliss. Those three records — Blood Of The Nations, Stalingrad and now Blind Rage — rival Accept‘s best during their golden era, namely Restless And Wild, Balls To The Wall and Metal Heart. Frankly, I think that the three Tornillo led albums are better — yes, better — than those three iconic ’80s albums.
In the last month or so I saw that Accept were receiving excellent review after excellent review for Blind Rage but I did not read any of them as I wanted to hear the band’s latest studio offering without any outside influences — or at least without any substantive opinions. Blind Rage follows off where Blood Of Nations and Stalingrad left off — if anything, Accept have kept the same formula more or less in terms of writing and song structure and did not try to re-invent the wheel. Why should they when the band is producing some of the best music of their long and storied history?”
Accept are scheduled to release their new live CD/DVD Restless & Live via Nuclear Blast on January 13, 2017.
