Just after finishing their latest extensive European tour, Accept have confirmed that they are immediately back in the studio working on their latest album, their fifteenth overall and fourth with frontman Mark Tornillo.

The album will be titled 'The Rise Of Chaos' and will be unleashed on August 4th 2017. It's also the German pioneers' fourth studio release through Nuclear Blast Records.

Accept will celebrate the album's live premiere exclusively on August 3rd, 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 Accept 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: Accept 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 told us:

"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 and we hope we can give something really special to the fans."

Thomas Jensen, organiser of Wacken Open Air, told us:

"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."
