The Acacia Strain Begin Work On New Album, Hitting The Road On Cool Tour
The band recently entered the studio to record the follow up to 2008's, "Continent." The band was also just confirmed to take part in "Cool Tour," alongside As I Lay Dying, Underoath, Between the Buried And Me, Blessthefall, Architects, Cancer Bats and War of Ages.
The Acacia Strain join the tour July 13th in Atlanta, GA and the concludes on August 1st in San Francisco, CA. (The band was told they were unable to play the tour kick off on July 12 at House of Blues Orlando, which is on Disney property, due to objectionable lyrical content.)
Studio Update #1 features the band excitedly pulling up to the studio in their new ride, loading in their newly acquired gear for their first day of recording. The Acacia Strain's Studio Update #1 can be viewed at the band's MYSPACE and at Prostheticrecords.com.
Vocalist Vincent Bennett had this to say, "We are so happy to be back at Planet Z with Zeuss and get this record rolling. We are going to do these updates often, so keep checking back to see what we are up to!"
Bennett also commented on their participation in "Cool Tour;" "We are going to have all new merch designs that you are only going to be able to buy on this tour. COOL TOUR EXCLUSIVES! We are also going to be debuting one or two new songs on the tour. This is the first time we are going to be playing these songs live and the first time they are going to be heard outside the studio. I feel like this tour has a different "personality" than the other summer tours... it's just so... COOL."
July 13 - Atlanta, GA @ The Tabernacle
