This Just In: Peter Baltes Leaves Accept!!!

The Press Release:
ACCEPT’s founding bassist Peter Baltes has announced his exit from the band. He said in a statement: ” To all ACCEPT fans: I hereby announce my departure as bass player from ACCEPT. I have been with the band from the very beginning. Many of you were there as well. I‘d like to thank you all for the great years we shared together. Keep it metal.“

ACCEPT’s founding guitarist Wolf Hoffmann commented: “We spent four decades together through thick and thin, ups and downs and I remember some incredible moments on stage. There was a blind understanding between us, personally and musically, which is very rare in this business! Looking back, I will forever cherish the carefree early years, the countless hours we spent writing songs, goofing around or roaming cities together on tour – just having a good ol’ time! Especially these last 10 years, after the revival of ACCEPT being so much fun and so successful that I thought we would continue forever and sail into the proverbial sunset together – maybe until one of us would drop dead on stage. But I guess I was wrong, it wasn’t meant to be. To see Peter leave ACCEPT now saddens me immensely but there’s nothing I can do but to wish him well – hoping that this is the right decision for him and that he will find whatever he is looking for… I will certainly miss my musical brother! One thing is certain, however: ACCEPT will continue full steam ahead!”

Comments vocalist Kyle Thomas:
“The excitement level of EXHORDER being in contract negotiations once again is higher for us than we can express. Coming to an agreement with Nuclear Blast has inspired us to bring our writing to new heights. People still want to hear this band, as was evident in the reaction to our performances in 2018. Nuclear Blast strongly wants to help facilitate this venture, and for that we are truly excited and grateful. I am looking forward to seeing what we can make happen together over the next few years. The roster at Nuclear Blast speaks for itself, as well as the presence of Monte Conner and Jaap Wagemaker on the team. Be on the lookout, because EXHORDER is heading your way once again!”

Witchcraft Cancels US Live Shows :(

It was just about a month ago when I shared the news that the Doom Metal masters in Witchcraft would be returning to US soil after something like a twelve year span of having done so (seen HERE). Well, sadly there have been some bad developments around this visit which you can see in the brief statement that the guys made on their Official Facebook page.

The Statement: US shows Cancelled. Dear friends. Due to serious health issues Witchcraft will not be able to perform the planned shows on NYC and Boston. We apologise deeply to our fans, the promoters and everyone involved. Ticket refund at place of purchase. Witchcraft.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Well that sure does suck, but I hope whatever serious illness is being dealt with is over and done with quickly and the band is back to good health once more. Be sure to set something else up soon Witchcraft, you don’t want people to think that you don’t like us after so long an absence. Remember to get your refunds back my readers because at the time of this notification there are NO rescheduled dates to mark on your calendar.
