ACCEPT: 'Platinum Edition' Reissues Of First Four Albums Due In April

The first four classic albums by ACCEPT"Accept", "I'm A Rebel", "Breaker" and "Restless And Wild" — will be available as CD re-releases in digipak format on April 14. These reissues were compiled in close collaboration with original ACCEPT vocalist Udo Dirkschneider. The booklets include the song's lyrics, old photos from the archives and liner notes by Udo; "I'm A Rebel", "Breaker" and "Restless And Wild" also come with exclusive live bonus tracks, performed by Dirkschneider.

Note: The "Accept" album, instead of written liner notes, includes an audio interview with Udo in which he gives insight on the foundation of the band.

These "Platinum Edition" reissues will only be available in North and South America, Asia, Russia, Turkey and the Baltic Countries.

Udo insists that he has no interest in reuniting with his former bandmates, even if it's just to play one last show with the group. "If Peter [Baltes, bass] and Wolf [Hoffmann, guitar] called me [to play with them again], but I don't think [they would], but [if they did], I would say, 'Have fun. Bye bye,'" he told Greece's Rockpages.

Last year Udo told Spark TV that he has "no relationship at all" with the members of ACCEPT. "We don't talk to each other," he said. "It's, in a way, also sad, but what can you do?"

The current lineup of ACCEPT includes American vocalist Mark Tornillo, who joined the band in 2009.
