Accept to Bring Blood of the Nations to Canada on North American Tour

Accept to Bring <i>Blood of the Nations</i> to Canada on North American Tour

German old-dog traditional metal lifers Accept surprised a lot of metal fans when they burst back on the scene this year with Blood of Nations, a comeback disc that didn't feature longtime staple behind the mic, Udo Dirkschneider, but rocked hard nonetheless. Now, the band have announced a 2011 North American tour in support of the album that will see them play a handful of Canadian shows.

The 20-show North American tour will feature Swedish power metal band Sabaton as openers. The trek begins in Orlando, FL on April 9 and finishes up in Houston, TX on May 7. The band will be playing Montreal, Quebec City and Toronto. Full dates are below.
