ACCEPT have parted ways with guitarist Herman Frank and drummer Stefan Schwarzmann.

Says ACCEPT in a statement: “ACCEPT would like to thank Herman Frank and Stefan Schwarzmann for being with us these last four-plus 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!

“The ‘Blind Rage’ world tour continues in 2015.”



Herman joined ACCEPT in 1982 shortly before the release of the band’s “Restless And Wild” album and exited the group for the first time after the arrival of 1983’s “Balls To The Wall” LP.

When ACCEPT reunited for festival appearances in 2005, Herman handled second-guitar duties alongside founding axeman Wolf Hoffmann, with Schwarzmann sitting behind the kit.

Frank and Schwarzmann were involved in ACCEPT’s comeback with new singer Mark Tornillo and have appeared on their last three studio albums: 2010’s “Blood of the Nations”, 2012’s “Stalingrad” and 2014’s “Blind Rage”.

Frank and Schwarzmann are currently involved in a new project called PANZER, also featuring vocalist and bassist Schmier, best known as frontman of DESTRUCTION.

PANZER’s debut album, “Send Them All To Hell”, was released on November 28 via Nuclear Blast.
