Accept Debut Lyric Video for ‘Final Journey’

With the release of their latest album ‘Blind Rage’ less than a week away, the legendary Accept are unleashing another song from the album. Check out the fiery new lyric video for ‘Final Journey’ in the player above.
As for the subject matter of the song, frontman Mark Tornillo told NPR that ‘Final Journey’ is not referring to them: “‘Final Journey’ is certainly not about Accept, but about all of us,” the vocalist revealed. “Eventually, we all take that final journey and when we do, we will most surely travel alone. ‘Where to?’ is the question!”
Accept have been on a roll since the addition of Tornillo for 2010’s ‘Blood of the Nations.’ They have also worked with producer Andy Sneap on each disc since 2010, including ‘Blind Rage.’
Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann says the decision to work with Sneap again was far more than a “never change a winning team” situation. “There is so much more behind this”, says Hoffmann. “It’s getting easier by the time, because the blueprints are getting clearer and you get to the point so much faster — meaning, the dynamics are already shown during the first recordings.”
They’ll kick off the touring cycle for ‘Blind Rage’ with four U.S. shows beginning Sept. 11 in Solana Beach, Calif. before tours in Europe, Japan and Australia. For all of their concert dates, go here.
