Accept Radio

Accept's lineup is changing once again. The veteran metal act has announced that guitarist Herman Frank and drummer Stefan Schwarzmann have left the band, but they're "parting as friends." 

Both members returned to Accept after the group ended its hiatus in 2005.  But a statement on the band's website says they all knew Frank and Schwarzmann had their own projects, and would eventually have to go their separate ways.They're set to release a new album and hit the road with their own band Panzer, while Accept is gearing up for another year of "heavy touring."  They have yet to reveal who will be taking over for Frank or Schwarzmann.
