Accept: New Album Entitled "Stalingrad"; April 2012 Release

We have received confirmation that reformed Accept have set "Stalingrad" as the title of their next album, due in April 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD is once again being helmed by British producer Andy Sneap(Megadeth, Exodus, Nevermore, Arch Enemy), who worked on the band's critically acclaimed comeback effort, "Blood Of The Nations".

Commented Accept guitarist Wolf Hoffman: "Accept and Andy Sneap have the perfect synergy. This was so clear with 'Blood Of The Nations' and we are excited to continue on that path. Andy is not only an amazing and prolific producer but also a very good friend who has long become a member of the Accept family."

Regarding the musical direction of Accept's next album, Hoffmanntold The Rock Pit earlier this year, "We're just gonna have the same attitude, the approach; we're just gonna do more of the same, you know, without it being the same. More similar-style stuff, hopefully fresh new ideas. And I mean, we're not gonna… The intention is not to change it right now. I mean, why would we? . . . But I have to say, it's always easier said than done. It's incredibly difficult to write songs that are sort of reminiscent of the past but they're not, you know, rip-offs of your own music. That sounds incredibly very simple, but it's really not, especially if you have a sort of history of 15 albums or whatever we have. Then there are always similarities that you have to avoid. It can't be too close, but it can't be too far away from it. So it's a pretty fine line that you have to walk sometimes, but, you know, hopefully we'll manage again." 

No track list or cover art work has been revealed yet. Stay tuned...
