Still crazy to see Acceptance in the studio recording.
Jason Tate on 08/19/15 - 11:38 AM
The Stranger have posted an article on Acceptance addressing the long discussed rumors that their drummer was kicked out for being gay (and also revealing that the band is thinking of releasing a new album).
Acceptance released their first new song, "Take You Away," in May—a track that wouldn't sound out of place on Phantoms. "We want to find a new home for the band and hopefully try to put out a record at some point, keep the band alive," McAlhaney said. "I don't think I could ever see us going on tour in the normal sense of the word. But it's fun to do this weekend stuff and work on Acceptance songs here and there."

Acceptance played at Gramercy Theater in New York last night. Hit the replies for a couple videos from the performance.
Jason Tate on 05/16/15 - 11:00 AM
New Acceptance is a thing. Hit the replies to hear "Take You Away." The band have launched a new merch store as well.

Acceptance have announced two shows in California in July. They're in the replies.
Jason Tate on 05/06/15 - 03:49 PM
Ten years ago today was a pretty special day. Arguably two of my favorite records that came from this "scene" of ours were released. Acceptance's Phantoms and The Receiving End of Sirens' Between The Heart and The Synapse were both released on April 26th, 2005. If you're having a lazy Sunday like me, throw on these records on and take a trip down memory lane. Jump to the replies to talk about both of these classic albums and share your memories with everyone.

Want to win a pair of tickets to see Acceptance at their Gramercy Theatre show in New York or the Showbox in Seattle? Of course you do. If you can go do the show ... tell us why you're the biggest Acceptance fan and should get the tickets in the replies to this post. I'll pick a winner this Friday.
Jason Tate on 04/21/15 - 01:22 PM
I can't think of many bands that have had the kind of legacy Acceptance have had on this website. We knew they were special when they first launched and their full-length album has reached "cult classic" status for many of us over the years. They've been the band I've most often wondered "what-if" while spinning Phantoms for the thousandth time. After the band announced their upcoming Skate and Surf appearance, and two shows, many have been wondering what is next for the band. Today, we've got some answers. Check out my Q&A with the band to find out what brought the guys back together, that their future is now, and what we can expect now that the band's been writing again.

Acceptance have announced their first headlining shows in 9 years (Seattle and NYC), tickets on sale Friday and more shows will be announced. More news coming soon.
Jason Tate on 04/07/15 - 10:24 AM
Acceptance hung out together "for the first time in about a decade" over the weekend and snapped some new promo photos. Look for more news to be coming in the next few weeks.
Jason Tate on 02/23/15 - 11:48 AM
Hey ... did you hear Acceptance is playing Skate and Surf? I'm going to be talking with the band in the near future and I've obviously got a bunch of questions I want to ask; however, I started thinking: is there a bigger collection of Acceptance fans online than here on the website? It's always seemed like we've been ground zero for Acceptance fandom. So, with that, I think it makes the most sense that I ask questions you guys want to know. Hit up the replies and let me know -- I'll end up asking the ones I see the most often.

Acceptance's Phantoms came out 9 years ago.
Jason Tate on 04/28/14 - 01:18 PM
Ok that wasn't too catchy, but I tried. Bad Timing Records is offering a 20% discount on Acceptance's Phantoms. Use the coupon code "TAKECOVER20" at checkout or click here for it to be applied automatically. BTR002 will be announced and in the label's hands in early December.

Congratulations to battalionaffair, Ponyboy, and whitelipstickkk, who are the winners of the Acceptance vinyl giveaway. The winners can send an email to Bad Timing Records with their mailing address. If you did not win, there are still white with blue splatter copies available and three test presses will be randomly inserted into orders.
Christian Wagner on 09/27/13 - 10:56 AM
The second pressing of Acceptance's Phantoms has been made available via our friends at Bad Timing Records. The webstore version is limited to 500 white splatter copies.
Christian Wagner on 09/25/13 - 11:32 AM
Bad Timing Records have announced second press details on Acceptance's Phantoms.
The records will be getting to us within the next 2-3 weeks. Like the first pressing, we'll put it up for sale once we have the records in hand, so probably around the third week of September. Here's the pressing info:
White w/ Blue Splatter – 500 units – available in the Bad Timing Records webstore
Solid White – 500 units – available exclusively via Hot Topic
So there it is. See you in a couple weeks.

Acceptance's Black Lines to Battlefields is now available on vinyl. Pick it up from Enjoy the Ride Records, Thunderbeard Records or Interpunk. Pressing info is in the replies.

Seattle Weekly has written an article on Acceptance's vinyl pressing and Bad Timing Records. You can read it here. There is one paragraph that stuck out to me, you can interpret it for yourself.
Following the vinyl’s success, the band is receptive to the idea of a reunion of sorts, though no one seems to want to pull the trigger. The logistics alone are daunting, with members spread across the country, many with families of their own and those full-time jobs.
Christian Wagner on 07/31/13 - 11:04 AM
Just a reminder, since so many of us are ecstatic about it - the vinyl pressing of Acceptance's Phantoms is available for purchase today at 2 pm EST (11am PST) via Bad Timing Records.

Update: There were some hiccups, but all is well - head over to their site to purchase.

Update #2: Four hours later ... the first pressing has sold out completely. - JT

Starting tomorrow, July 16th, at 2 PM EST -- Acceptance's cult-favorite Phantoms will be available for purchase on vinyl. The album will be released via Bad Timing Records and I'd recommend following them on Twitter and Facebook as well, since they've got some other great vinyl releases coming in the near future. An interview about the label and first release can be seen at Modern Vinyl.
Jason Tate on 07/15/13 - 09:59 AM
Soooo... it's looking like Acceptance's Phantoms is coming to vinyl. Take a look at #BTR001 on Twitter & Instagram - several people have posted photos, the hashtag, and lyrics. Seems like we'll find out more on Monday.
Jack Appleby on 07/12/13 - 11:06 AM
Today is the 8th Anniversary of Acceptance's beloved full-length, Phantoms. Go listen to a phenomenal record.

I recently interviewed Christian McAlhaney of Anberlin and he had this to say about the possibility of an Acceptance reunion. Look for the full interview early next week.
There’s always been whispers of reunion stuff here and there. Basically, I think Jason is the last person everyone is waiting on. I don’t even know what that would look like or what we would do, I just want to get the dialogue going because it’s been awhile. I think a lot of people would like that, and I would like it too. There was never any closure for the guys in Acceptance. We just said we were done and never played any final shows or anything. There was just never any closure.

I think you could definitely do a...

It looks like one of our favorites may be making an appearance tomorrow night.

Acceptance now has a twitter. Oh, the band doesn't have any plans of reuniting, but they won't rule it out.

Acceptance has posted a new (old) demo, "Desperate," on their Myspace.

Update: The chat is now over. I would like to personally thank Jason for staying on for so long and for answering everyone's questions and to take the time to return to the music community, even if it was only for a few hours. For everyone that missed the chat, you can read everything Jason said here.

Jason Vena (ex-Acceptance) will be chatting in this thread at approximately 7 p.m. EST under the username jvena. Come in and ask him how life is, about his post-touring adjustment, or just say hello.
Anton Djamoos on 01/30/08 - 04:54 PM
Tomorrow night around 7 p.m. EST, Jason Vena (ex-Acceptance) will be chatting on AP.net. We cannot guarantee an exact time at the moment, but it will be around that time, so be sure to check in to talk.

Christian (ex-Acceptance) has posted an update on what him and a few of the other ex-members have been up to since the break up.
UpdateSoooooooooo, I bet many of you have been wondering what the crap Nick, Kyle, and I have been up to since Acceptance broke up and we moved to California. (For those of you just joining us, yes Acceptance has broken up) Well, I'll tell you.... Kyle has been diligently working on a movie script for Warner Bros. that he and his brother have been writing for quite some time, Nick has been trying to make some cashish working odd jobs around town (think slave labor), and I have been painstakingly working on my tan and a killer mullet.

Collectively we have been...

Acceptance, who recently broke up, has made their full length Phantoms available for download in its entirety over at pureVOLUME.com.

Acceptance have posted a new demo entitled "Not Afraid" on their MySpace, which you can stream or download. You can expect one more new track to be added in the very near future. We'll keep you up-to-date and let you know when it's up. Consider this their "goodbye" gift to you.

Acceptance has posted a new video on their MySpace page of the band working on new material. Transition's "Excusable" is the song playing in the background, in case anyone was wondering.

Acceptance has launched a video series that highlights all of the 'drama and suspense' of making a new record. Episode one can be seen here and a new episode will be posted every week.

Acceptance is currently at home writing new material.
Rohan Kohli on 04/05/06 - 08:28 PM
I am not sure if this is already common knowledge but Acceptance will be playing the May 7th date of Bamboozle.
