ACCEPT: New Video Interview With MARK TORNILLO

Annick Giroux (CAUCHEMAR vocalist, “Hellbent For Cooking” author) conducted an interview with vocalist Mark Tornillo of reformed heavy metal legends ACCEPT when the band played in La Paz, Bolivia on May 10, 2011. You can now watch the chat below. A review of the concert with photos is available at the Into The Voidweb site.

ACCEPT was forced to play as a four-piece during its concert in Houston, Texas last Saturday, May 7 after the band’s guitarist, Herman Frank, suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung in a stage fall the previous night in San Antonio. Baltes said in a statement, “Unfortunately, Herman had an accident during [Friday] night’s show in San Antonio. He tripped and landed hard on his back. Even though he managed to finish the show, his pain became unbearable as we arrived in Houston (for the band’s final night of the American portion of its tour). He was taken to the emergency room, where the doctors discovered four broken ribs and a punctured lung. He will remain at the hospital for now. Considering his condition, his spirit is great, and we all need to give our support to him as he recovers from his injuries. In the meantime, the band will continue the tour, and Herman will rejoin us as soon as he is all healed up and good to go.”

ACCEPT kicked off its massive “Blood Of The Nations 2011 Tour” of Europe on January 14.

The entire “Blood Of the Nations 2011 Tour” will involve over 80 mind-blowing concerts around the globe.
