THE ACACIA STRAIN posts pre-production song, announces recording schedule


Massachusetts’ THE ACACIA STRAIN have posted a pre-production song entitled “Dr. Doom” from the band’s forthcoming record ‘Continent’ on the band’s MySpace page (http://www.myspace.com/theacaciastrain). Currently scheduled for release later this year, the band headed into the studio April 13 with producer Zeuss (Hatebreed, Shadows Fall, Municipal Waste) at Planet Z studio. Pre-production for ‘Continent’ has been completed and THE ACACIA STRAIN has again tapped artist Paul Romano (Mastodon, The Red Chord, Trivium), who handled the artwork for the band’s previous release, ‘The Dead Walk,’ which saw a June 2006 release via Prosthetic Records.

 

Having just played a handful of Canadian shows in March as well as completing a successful headlining tour with Despised Icon, Full Blown Chaos, and The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza in November and December of 2007, THE ACACIA STRAIN will again embark on a headlining tour this summer. Details, support bands and confirmed dates will be announced shortly. In addition, the band will play a hometown show April 26 in Worcester, Mass. as part of the 10th annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival.

“Technically adept, and perhaps even challenging to the unseasoned metal listener, The Dead Walk is clearly the strongest effort to date from New England scene stars The Acacia Strain.” – Alternative Press magazine

 

        “It’s The Acacia Strain’s rationale that makes them somewhat of a standout: there isn’t an established category called “Heavy As Fuck.” – Unrestrained! magazine

 

“It could be one of the big extreme releases of the year…the guys have streamlined their sound and their lineup, creating a solid disc heavy on breakdowns and with no shortage of metal riffs all over the place.” – Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles magazine

 

        “Think the oppressive groove of Mastodon with the stodgy beats of Throwdown, and the hellish screams of your childhood nightmares. This is the sort of noise that makes dogs whimper, mountains shudder, babies cry and your mates dance – all at the same time.” – Metal Hammer magazine

 

“Quite clearly the art of sophisticated bloodthirsty tech metal is entering a new renaissance period and it is albums like this that are leading the charge.” – The PRP
