This past January, it was announced that ACCEPT will perform at all European festivals in 2024 and the South American tour in May with Joel Hoekstra.

Hoekstra will be standing in for Phil Shouse, who will remain with the band as their permanent live guitarist for all other gigs.

New York-based Joel Hoekstra is best known to fans as a current member of the legendary band WHITESNAKE and is part of TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA. He has also played with Cher, NIGHT RANGER and FOREIGNER, to name just a few of his numerous collaborations.

Hoffmann commented: “It is a great honor for us to be on stage with Joel Hoekstra. Joel is an exceptional guitarist and I have huge respect for him. The whole band is really looking forward to playing with this string magician.”

Hoekstra added: “I’m super honored and excited to riff out and rock out with Wolf and the guys! I’m really looking forward to meeting all the ACCEPT fans in South America and Europe! Let’s rock!!”

Last June, Wolf said in an interview with Cassius Morris about the progress of the recording sessions for the follow-up to 2021’s “Too Mean To Die” album: “Well, we have this place in Nashville that we have made the last five albums in. And we basically do drums at a place — it’s not quite sure where we’re gonna do it this time. And then guitars are usually happening here in Nashville and mixing happens in England. Nowadays, with technology, we don’t really need to be together in the same place for four weeks at a time; we do it here and there and everywhere. But it’s still important to know that we’re doing it kind of together; we’re not just sharing files over the Internet. ‘Cause that has never worked for us. So, in other words, Andy has to be in the room, if possible, and then whoever gets to record their tracks, and then a bunch of others are usually around. So it’s a group thing, for sure, but it’s not [like] everybody’s there the whole, all the time together.”

In the fall of 2022, ACCEPT completed a North American tour with support from NARCOTIC WASTELAND. The band played a career-spanning set of new and classic tracks, including mega-hits “Balls To The Wall”, “Princess Of The Dawn”, “Fast As A Shark” and many more.

In February 2022, it was announced that ACCEPT had inked a worldwide deal with Napalm Records.

“Too Mean To Die” came out in January 2021 via Nuclear Blast. The LP was the group’s first without bassist Peter Baltes, who exited ACCEPT in November 2018. He has since been replaced by Martin Motnik. ACCEPT‘s lineup has also been expanded with the addition of a third guitarist, the aforementioned Philip Shouse, who originally filled in for Uwe Lulis during 2019’s “Symphonic Terror” tour, before being asked to join the band permanently.

“Too Mean To Die” was recorded in Nashville with Sneap (JUDAS PRIEST, MEGADETH),who has been responsible for the studio sound of ACCEPT since 2010.

Mark Tornillo joined ACCEPT in 2009 as the replacement for the band’s original lead singer, Udo Dirkscheider. He can be heard on ACCEPT‘s last five studio albums, “Blood Of The Nations” (2010),“Stalingrad” (2012),“Blind Rage” (2014),“The Rise Of Chaos” (2017) and “Too Mean To Die”.
