THE ACACIA STRAIN Unleash New Track and Digital Single, Launch Pre-Order

June 18th, 2010

THE ACACIA STRAIN has unleashed the first monstrous track off of their upcoming full length, “Wormwood,” due July 20th via Prosthetic Records. The track is titled “Jonestown” and is streaming now exclusively, at store.prostheticrecords.com. The track is also now available as a digital single at Itunes http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/jonestown-alternate-version/id376447333

Prosthetic Records has launched the official pre-order for the album, which will be available on CD and LP in six different colors. “Wormwood,” can be ordered on its own, or in a variety of different package combinations with shirts, hooded sweatshirts, in limited collectors’ boxes (featuring an exclusive banner, pin and chip clip!) and more!

“Wormwood” was recorded at Planet Z Studios in Hadley, MA with Zeuss (Hatebreed, Chimaira, Shadows Fall) handling producing, mixing and mastering. The cover art was one by acclaimed artist, Justin Kamerer, who has done previous work for Bleeding Through, Guns N Roses, Slayer and many more. The band chronicled the sessions through a series of video blogs which can be viewed at www.prostheticrecords.com.

Front man Vincent Bennett commented; “We worked just as hard if not harder on this album as we did on (2008’s)“Continent.’ We took an entire block of time off of touring and our lives in general to focus 100% on the creation of ‘Wormwood.’ Where we normally write a record with a theme already attached to it; this time around we wrote a record and the theme developed as we went. We wanted to do something that was still Acacia Strain, but broke away from the ‘mold’ that has been struck by all the bands these days that we seem to get grouped in with. All the songs have their own dynamic, instead of writing an album filled with like sounding songs. This is the heaviest record WE have ever written and these are the most personal lyrics I have ever written. Justin Kamerer; who did the artwork for the album, was really great to work with and really brought the songs to life with his imagery. I am really excited for this release, and we are all very proud of what we did with this record. I hope you enjoy.”

THE ACACIA STRAIN played will be participating in “Cool Tour” in July/August with As I Lay Dying, Underoath, Between the Buried And Me, Blessthefall, Architects, Cancer Bats and War of Ages. They’ll also be in Europe in September and October on the “Hell On Earth Tour” with Terror and more.

THE ACACIA STRAIN Unleash New Track and Digital Single, Launch Pre-Order

THE ACACIA STRAIN has unleashed the first monstrous track off of their upcoming full length, “Wormwood,” due July 20th via Prosthetic Records. The track is titled “Jonestown” and is streaming now exclusively, at store.prostheticrecords.com. The track is also now available as a digital single at Itunes http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/jonestown-alternate-version/id376447333

Prosthetic Records has launched the official pre-order for the album, which will be available on CD and LP in six different colors. “Wormwood,” can be ordered on its own, or in a variety of different package combinations with shirts, hooded sweatshirts, in limited collectors’ boxes (featuring an exclusive banner, pin and chip clip!) and more!

“Wormwood” was recorded at Planet Z Studios in Hadley, MA with Zeuss (Hatebreed, Chimaira, Shadows Fall) handling producing, mixing and mastering. The cover art was one by acclaimed artist, Justin Kamerer, who has done previous work for Bleeding Through, Guns N Roses, Slayer and many more. The band chronicled the sessions through a series of video blogs which can be viewed at www.prostheticrecords.com

Front man Vincent Bennett commented; “We worked just as hard if not harder on this album as we did on (2008’s)“Continent.’ We took an entire block of time off of touring and our lives in general to focus 100% on the creation of ‘Wormwood.’ Where we normally write a record with a theme already attached to it; this time around we wrote a record and the theme developed as we went. We wanted to do something that was still Acacia Strain, but broke away from the ‘mold’ that has been struck by all the bands these days that we seem to get grouped in with. All the songs have their own dynamic, instead of writing an album filled with like sounding songs. This is the heaviest record WE have ever written and these are the most personal lyrics I have ever written. Justin Kamerer; who did the artwork for the album, was really great to work with and really brought the songs to life with his imagery. I am really excited for this release, and we are all very proud of what we did with this record. I hope you enjoy.”

THE ACACIA STRAIN played will be participating in “Cool Tour” in July/August with As I Lay Dying, Underoath, Between the Buried And Me, Blessthefall, Architects, Cancer Bats and War of Ages. They’ll also be in Europe in September and October on the “Hell On Earth Tour” with Terror and more.
