Former ACCEPT Singer DAVID REECE Signs With EL PUERTO RECORDS For Next Solo Album

Former ACCEPT frontman David Reece has inked a deal with El Puerto Records for the release of his next solo album. The singer had previously worked with El Puerto on the two albums from his SAINTED SINNERS project.

El Puerto label boss Torsten Ihlenfeld commented: "[It is] great to work with David again. Reece released an amazing album lately, followed by a great tour and extensive live activities, but looking at what is on the recording machines right now, this was just the beginning of something big to come. We are stoked to the max and can't wait to bring this masterpiece to life!"

Reece's latest solo album, "Resilient Heart", was released last November through Mighty Music. The follow-up to 2013's "Compromise" featured Reece alongside Danish musicians Marco Angioni (guitar), Martin J. Andersen (guitar), Malte Frederik Burkert (bass) and Sigurd J. Jensen (drums).

Reece was recruited by ACCEPT for the "Eat The Heat" album in 1989 following the departure of Udo Dirkschneider. Reece's higher-pitched delivery was in sharp contrast to Udo's distinctive style, and overall, the album was a critical and commercial disappointment. Midway through the "Eat The Heat" tour, differences between the band and Reece had come to a head, leading to the altercation between the singer and bassist Peter Baltes in Chicago. By the end of 1989, ACCEPT had hung it up.

Reece has also played with BONFIRE and BANGALORE CHOIR.
