Accept: "Balls to the Wall"; Expanded Edition 2CD Out In May

Hear No Evil Records/Cherry Red Records has announced a May 27th European/28th North American release date for the Expanded Edition of Accept's 1983 breakthrough album, "Balls To The Wall". 

Controversial at the time for its cover and some of the album’s themes, it was also their greatest commercial success, reaching number 75 in the US Billboard Hot 100. "Balls To The Wall" received gold status in the US, partly off the back of the heavy rotation the title track’s video received on MTV. 

The album is now backed by the bonus CD "Staying A Life: Live In Japan 1985", a live album recorded at the Festival Hall, Osaka, Japan on September 18th, 1985. As well as storming live versions of key tracks from "Balls To The Wall", it features many Accept classics including "Breaker", "Princess Of The Dawn", "Restless And Wild", "Son Of A Bitch" and "Fast As A Shark". Watch the full concert below.

An expanded booklet features new liner notes from Classic Rock and Metal Hammer’s Malcolm Dome, commissioned for this release.
