After spending an unbelievable last six months on a promotion and live performance marathon, Accept have now confirmed their next European tour.

Accept have been criss-crossing the planet with a speed and frantic energy that could be topped only by a worldwide epidemic. The European warm-up tour and the stadium shows with AC/DC, the headlining spots at the European Sonisphere Festivals. The US Warm-up Tour, The Japan Festival... these all added up to more than 65,000 miles traveled since May!

Accept are now ready to announce that they will indeed return to the European Stages for a 30-show tour starting in January with shows throughout the entire continent. The band's latest album 'Blood of the Nations' has already blown away the entire media world, the music industry and of course all the hard rock and metal fans around the world. Accept have returned to the hard rock forefront stronger than ever.

'Blood of the Nations' has reached the highest chart debuts ever for the band. Eddie Truck, the US hard rock and TV icon has just announced that 'Blood of the Nations' is the Highlight of the Year. "A huge comeback for Accept and we all agree. This is definitely the metal album of the year. It is amazing!" he stated.

Eddie Truck is joined in this sentiment by most music media reviews of the last few months, all of whom nominate 'Blood of the Nations' to be the Metal Album of the Year!

While the recent warm-up shows were mostly a low key and intimate, fan focused affairs, Accept are now ready to bring a new show concept to the stage that is guaranteed to a extravagant rock spectacle. Accept have always been known for their fan appreciation like no other, and this new tour will be no exception.

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
