Acceptance reunion in the works?

Acceptance reunion in the works?

Christian McAlhaney of Anberlin recently spoke to Absolute Punk about the possibility of resurrecting his former band Acceptance, which broke up in 2006, for at least some shows. He states:

“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.”

Christian was also asked if the band could play a one-off gig, in which he replied, “Yeah, it would be great, honestly. I hear it all the time on tour with Anberlin. People are like, ‘Oh my God! You were in Acceptance!’ Actually, more often than I would think. It’s all the time that people are like, ‘Oh yeah! Acceptance! That was the best record! You guys should do a reunion!’ I think if we did reunion shows, even if they were just West Coast or whatever, I think the other band dudes would be surprised how many people would turn out.”

Acceptance had been together for eight years, between 1998 and 2006. They last released their only full-length studio album, Phantoms, in 2005 on Columbia Records.
