The Acacia Strain’s Fourth Studio Record Release & Headlining Tour!

In the midst of copy cat & cookie cutter bands, THE ACACIA STRAIN stand out as a group that sidesteps convention and the mundane and continuously produce gripping, technical, blistering metal. THE ACACIA STRAIN is known for their down-tuned guitar sound and nasty breakdowns; as the band combines the elements of abrasive death metal, and hardcore. The Massachusetts four-some will be proudly releasing their fourth studio record, Continent, via Prosthetic Records on August 19th, 2008.  The band tapped acclaimed producer Zeuss (Hatebreed, Shadows Fall, God Forbid) for this next release.  The artwork for Continent was done by none other then Paul Romano (Chiodos, Mastodon, Trivium, The Red Chord)

THE ACACIA STRAIN is bringing the onslaught to the road and to the fans, headlining the SUN YOUR BUNZ tour, with dates running from May 30 to June 29. Nuclear Blast’s All Shall Perish and fellow Massachusetts hardcore masters, Since the Flood are on the road as support with select dates featuring The Warriors and Eternal Lord.
