Copenhagen, Denmark VOLBEAT has revealed legendary German heavy metal pioneers ACCEPT and Denmark's KONKHRA will join the band for their largest headlining appearance to date on August 1 at Tusindårsskoven in Odense, Denmark. With barely two months to go until the band takes the stage for the final time in 2015, limited tickets remain which can be purchased via www.volbeat.dk .
With a back catalogue dating all the way back to their self-titled debut in 1979, ACCEPT have managed to impress the Danes on several occasions in recent years. In 2012, they initiated their Danish charge with a packed Amager Bio, and the following year saw them back in Denmark performing at the constant growing Copenhell Festival. They released their latest studio offering, Blind Rage in the summer of 2014 to critical acclaim across the globe. The band will perform at a few select festivals over the course of this summer, alongside this special appearance in Odense on August 1.
Opening on the night will be Copenhagen based death metal band KONKHRA. Forming under the name Vicious Circle in the late 1980s, the band settled for the name KONKHRA with their first demo 25 years ago. They quickly proved to be the leading metal force in Denmark up through the 1990s, issuing the groundbreaking releases Spit or Swallow and Weed Out the Weak. Historically, when Michael Poulsen was a young, rising front man, the band invited his first band Dominus to open for them in Ringsted Medborgerhus in the early 1990s. That evening marked Dominus' very first live performance. The addition of KONKHRA marks the deeply loyal Poulsen returning the favor to Anders Lundemark and company.
