News from the German metal machine Accept. Herman Frank and Stefan Schwarzmann are no longer part of the band and will focus in the future on Panzer; the new band (including Schmier from Destruction) that released recently their debut album.
Here is the official statement from Accept:
"ACCEPT would like to thank Herman Frank & Stefan Schwarzmann for being with us these last 4 + years, for making themselves available whenever needed and for rocking their asses off! We and the fans all knew that they had their own careers and that eventually we would run into scheduling and other conflicts beyond our control. Herman and Stefan are now ready to take on the world, with their own band “PANZER”, a Nuclear Blast Record deal under their belts and a new album!
We are parting as friends and wish them nothing but success!
We ourselves are getting ready for 2015 – another year of heavy touring! We would like to say thanks again to our fans around the world for their huge support and for the fantastic year 2014!"
