Accept Enter World Charts At #14

Cover - Accept - Blind Rage

The new Accept album “Blind Rage” is an international success, having just debuted on the World Charts at #14 – the highest ever World Chart placing in the band’s 30 year history.

Tickets for the upcoming 2014 “Blind Rage World Tour” are quickly selling out too. Two weeks before the international release of “Blind Rage”, Accept headlined shows, playing to audiences of 80,000 at Wacken 2014 and 750,000 at Woodstock Festival. These shows fired up the fans to buy “Blind Rage” and comfortably placed the band at #1 on the charts in both Germany and Finland, the top 10 in many other countries and #35 on the Billboard Top 200 in the US. The 2014 world tour kicks off with some very special US shows starting September 11th in California. The “Blind Rage World Tour” will pay special tribute to the tracks from the new album. Tickets and tour dates are available at http://www.acceptworldwide.com/tour/.

Statement Markus Staiger (Owner, Nuclear Blast):

“We are proud and thankful to be part of Accept‘s rebirth in 2010. With a number one position in the German Charts they climbed the to the top of Mt. Olympus.
This is the reward of the consequent hard work of the band, their manager Gaby Hoffmann and Deville Schober and the whole Nuclear Blast team – together we stand strong!”

Statement Accept:

“Four years ago we decided to start Accept anew. Of course we hoped to reach the fans of Heavy Metal and leave a few more marks in its history. None of us would have thought that we could reach number one in the official German Charts. We would like to thank our team, our label partner Nuclear Blast, Warner Distribution and Brainstorm Music Marketing, all of who gave us enormous strength and the will to continue in order to make this happen.”
