Former The Acacia Strain guitarist Daniel "DL" Laskiewicz has joined Legend. The band will release a new album in early 2014 via Rise Records.
I'm very proud to announce that I'm the newest addition to the band Legend. I will be lead guitar/principal songwriter and I couldn’t be more excited. I have continued writing material as always, searching for someone with a huge voice to carry my music. Upon brainstorming I almost shit my pants when I imagined Chad Ruhlig’s voice over my riffs! I got in touch with him to sing on some of my songs for fun and he threw the idea out to just be in Legend. Being a fan of The Pale Horse record, I accepted the invitation and here we are today...

Guitarists Devin Shidaker (ex-Oceano) and Richard Gomez have joined The Acacia Strain.
It is with excitement and zero negativity that Massachusetts' based, The Acacia Strain announce the addition of two new full time members, Devin Shidaker and Richard Gomez, both on guitar. After many years of service, Daniel "DL" Laskiewicz will no longer be writing music for The Acacia Strain and we wish him the best in all of his future endeavors.

As a band who tours, it is very unfair to have people who have stuck by us and tell them that they have no say or can't be an active participant. (Thank you for life Tony Diaz).

As a band, our perspective is for all of us to be involved and be a...

The Acacia Strain have parted ways with guitarist/songwriter Daniel "DL" Laskiewicz.
Well, if you havent noticed, i havent played a show with the acacia strain in years and ive just been writing the music for them. Ive been informed today that they will continue on without me, meaning shows and writing albums. This is totally understandable and i wish the band the best. I'll be around, as im still recording and producing and also have another project in the works.

Our interview with The Acacia Strain can be read here. They're currently still on tour as direct support for Every Time I Die, so check them out if they hit your city.
Rise is great. I mean, we've had them do more for us in the one year we've been signed to them than the other labels have done in the other 6 years we've been signed. They're really personable, they're literally a phone call away, as opposed to going through all these different channels just to talk to your own record label. They treat us like human beings, you know?

The Acacia Strain have been forced to drop off their current tour due to a serious van accident. We wish the band a speedy recovery.
Press ReleaseIt comes with heavy hearts and sadness to announce that The Acacia Strain will be leaving their co-headlining tour with Veil Of Maya due to a serious van accident. Members of the band and crew are being treated for minor injuries.

Front man Vincent Bennett commented, "Canceling tour dates is something we hate doing but we will make it up to all of you. We are all very grateful to be alive and will see you in the New Year."

Last week, I spoke with The Acacia Strain regarding their signing to Rise Records, the new track they are putting out this week and how the band is slated to be self-recording their forthcoming album. You can check out the interview with DL here.
From The Interview I think we just want to maintain our credibility. People were worried and everyone was fucking crying. Like this huge internet shut up war. Nothing is gonna change, we promise the record is gonna be heavy. Vincent is not gonna be clean singing. Like dude, really? I guess we just want to continue on our path and do it as long as we can. As long as people listen to us and buy our records and give a shit, then we’ll be around...

A new interview with The Acacia Strain vocalist Vincent Bennett reveals his distaste for being dubbed "deathcore." What's worse--being called deathcore or association with Trace Cyrus?
From the InterviewI have said it a couple of times: deathcore is the new nu-metal. You see the same kids and the same ethic. It sucks. And if anyone calls us "deathcore" then I might do something very bad to them. We aren't deathcore. We are heavy. Any band that calls THEMSELVES deathcore should not be writing music. It just goes to show you that the weak minded need to label things.
