Acceptance can now be added to the list of bands reuniting for an undisclosed amount of time. The start of the reunion will be at New Jersey’s Skate and Surf Festival from May 16-17. They will be playing alongside a wide range of punk, rock and metal artists including The Gaslight Anthem, MewithoutYou, Poison the Well and Manchester Orchestra.

Acceptance originally called it quits in 2006, shortly after the release of their highly successful debut album, Phantoms. Following the break up, members went on to join Anberlin and Search/Rescue. No word is out on whether or not the band plans to tour following the festival.

Many will recognize Skate and Surf Festival by its former name, The Bamboozle Festival. Acceptance last played the New Jersey festival in 2006.

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
