“Blood Of The Nations”, the new album from ACCEPT, sold around 2,900 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 187 on The Billboard 200 chart.
Released in North America on September 14 via Nuclear Blast Records, “Blood Of The Nations” was recorded at Backstage Studio in Derbyshire, England with acclaimed British producer and SABBAT guitarist Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY, MASTERPLAN). The CD marks the recording debut of the band’s latest addition, vocalist Mark Tornillo (ex-TT QUICK).
After debuting their new lineup to a sold-out audience in New York this past May and then traveling to Europe to devastate the masses with shows in 16 different countries in 80 days (including two shows opening for AC/DC), ACCEPT has returned to tour the U.S. for the first time in 14 years on a co-headlining tour with KING’S X. ACCEPT’s first show kicked off the eleventh annual ProgPower USA festival in Atlanta.
ACCEPT 2010 is:
Wolf Hoffmann: Guitar
Peter Baltes: Bass
Herman Frank: Guitar
Mark Tornillo: Vocals
Stefan Schwarzmann: Drums
The October 19 concert by ACCEPT at the Key Club in West Hollywood, California will be streamed live around the world via Stickam.com.
