ACCEPT Unveil Title Track from Upcoming Album with Official Video!

Heavy metal legends ACCEPT unleash the first single, the title track of their upcoming album Humanoid, out on April 26, 2024! The hard-hitting first single features razor-sharp riffs in true ACCEPT style and comments on our reliance on technology. The dystopian atmosphere of the accompanying official music video compliments the track perfectly, depicting a stark contrast between a video wall and the band performing live in front of it.

ACCEPT was the first heavy metal band from Germany to explode internationally, influencing an entire generation of bands. Founded in 1976, ACCEPT has remained at the top of the scene with countless sold-out shows, headline slots at all major international festivals, Gold certifications, #1 chart positions and a colossal number of albums sold throughout the years.
 
Fans will get their chance to hear the new songs live soon after the release of Humanoid on ACCEPT’s South American tour, kicking off at the end of April, as well as at many big European summer festivals – including Hellfest, Wacken and Masters of Rock. Tickets for ACCEPT’s autumn 2024 European headline tour are also already on sale. Watch the video below and secure your copy of Humanoid now!
 
ACCEPT on “Humanoid”:
“The song plays with the omnipresent topic of Artificial Intelligence (AI). In a strange way, we have entered exciting times now… This Digital Revolution has a huge impact, probably bigger than anything humankind has ever gone through. The Industrial Revolution was huge, but this might be even bigger, and we’re just at the beginning of it. However, I’m also a little afraid that humanity gets lost and pushed aside in all this stuff. The song is pretty impactful and provoking!”

“On Humanoid, ACCEPT once again succeed in channeling the essence of heavy metal: Cutting riffs, sublime solos, big melodies. Must be heard loud!”
– Metal Hammer Germany –

Once again finalized by leading metal producer Andy Sneap (Judas Priest, Amon Amarth, Testament, Saxon, etc.) at his Backstage Recording Studios Ltd. in Derbyshire, UK, Humanoid is a towering musical achievement and another world class entry in the ACCEPT catalog, certain to rally fans from around the world. Humanoid will be available in various formats worldwide, some of them strictly limited.

Humanoid joins absolute genre classics like Balls To The Wall, certified Gold in USA and Canada, Metal Heart, and newer masterpieces like Blood of the Nations and the #1 charting album Blind Rage. Their albums regularly place in national Top 10 sales charts, with global sales in excess of 17 million to date.

ACCEPT have never shied away from hot button issues, and this album is no exception. Yet the band’s 17th studio album is certainly not a concept album. It deals with topics like AI and how our reliance on technology is gradually stripping away our individuality. ACCEPT offers a warning in this new album and title track single Humanoid. Since singer Mark Tornillo will never be an advocate for the digital age, he counterbalances the title track with raw emotions, frailties, significant Rites of Passage we encounter on the path of life and characteristics that make us uniquely human: feeling uncomfortable, getting older, dealing with hurt, disappointment, and the final stop for everyone: death.

Humanoid is a ferociously electrifying, dynamic and subtly nuanced platter with tongue in cheek humor, as heard in biblical references on “The Reckoning” – an ode to concert audiences – a thrilling new spin on the “Frankenstein” story and “Straight Up Jack” – a track that surely would have been a Bon Scott approved drinking song.

The opening track “Diving into Sin” gives listeners a hair-raising energetic jolt with its Middle Eastern influenced intro, and an almost aggressive, screaming vocal from Tornillo setting the rest of the album up for a most bountiful feast. “Unbreakable” is as much about the band as it is the bond between ACCEPT and their fans, in the concert arena – an easy going “Hey, let’s do this” kind of rock song. “Mind Games”, on the other hand, has a vintage feel, circa “Metal Heart”“No One Gets Out Alive” seems tailor made for live shows. It says that regardless of life’s circumstances, rich, famous, or not, death is the great equalizer. Upbeat and aggressive with guitar interplay, “Southside Of Hell” ends the disc with a wonderful bit of wordplay, courtesy of Tornillo.      

Humanoid is an album that targets the head, heart, gut and… balls! Listen for yourself!
