Acceptance

Acceptance's sparkling rock themes unveil not only their previous musical experience, mostly coming from punk rock ground, but also the crossbred musical wishes shared by each member of the lineup. Forming in Seattle, WA, Acceptance signed their particular view of alternative pop/rock not only due to their pure rocking influences, but also because of their candid pop preferences. Jason Vena (vocals, bass), Kaylan Cloyd (guitar), Chris DeCastro (guitar), and Peter (drums) were the composing members of Acceptance when the band first got together in 1998. Following a period during which the quartet discovered their distinct creative path, they started playing their first shows, enjoying enthusiastic praise. This opened the way to them recording their first disc. The EP The Lost Words appeared in 1999, months before guitarist DeCastro decided to leave the band to pursue his own trail. It was after the band's last gig with DeCastro that Garrett Lunceford, who replaced him, offered to join Acceptance. After the lineup change, Acceptance continued to tour intensively, playing opening concerts for crews such as the Juliana Theory, Element 101, and Bleach, as their debut EP sold upwards of 5,000 units. In 2003, Acceptance returned with another EP, Black Lines to Battlefields, on The Miltia Group. Extensive touring, including dates with Gatsbys American Dream and The Snake The Cross The Crown, followed before the band's Columbia debut, Phantoms, appeared in April 2005. Early 2006 was spent on sold-out dates around the country with peers the Academy Is..., Hellogoodbye and Panic! at the Disco before hitting up May's Bamboozle festival. By summer 2006, however, rumors that had been circulating among fans for a bit were confirmed. Acceptance -- who by now comprised Vena, Cloyd, guitarist Christian McAlhaney, bassist Ryan Zwiefelhofer and drummer Nick Radovanovic -- decided to call it quits. Various band members went on to form new projects. ~ Mario Mesquita Borges

Black lines to battlefields is the best song I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. Acceptance is still one of my favorite bands of all time, hands down.

I found theses guys years ago through AOL Presents or something like that. I went out and bought the CD right away. It's solid throughout. I highly recommend it.

It's sad that they didn't make any more music together. I'll have to look into the artists' other work.

The original drummer, Garrett Lunceford, got kicked out because he was gay. The remaining members told him to cure his illness or get out. Definitely of irony : Calling your band Acceptance, then kicking out your drummer because he's gay. YAY!

I've never heard of anybody having a favorite band that only has ONE album. That must really suck for you. :(

too many great bands break up after only album. This is one of them. Great pop-rock album.

@e-bodine - good call on the 3EB similarity. I've noticed Pandora groups artist not only by sound, but also by the time they were popular...pr o b a b l y because that's how most of the fans overlap. That might be why you don't see 3EB on the list.

I aboslutely love this band. unfortunatel y i discovered them after they had already broken up. Its a shame because they are so great! Take cover and so contagious are my favorites!

Okay, never heard them before, but like them. If they broke up, what are the new groups?
