Friday, April 07, 2006 7:11 PM PT
Springfield, MA' purveyors of all things heavy, The Acacia Strain
, will release "The Dead Walk" on June 13, 2006, through Prosthetic Records
. The record was recorded with Adam Dutkiewicz (Killswitch Engage) in December, 2005, and features extensive artwork handled by Paul Romano (Mastodon). For an updated take on the artwork, click here
. The album will feature the tracks "4 x 4," "Angry Mob Justice," and "Whoa! Shut It Down," which were played live recently on the string of dates alongside Darkest Hour and Himsa in February and March. In the meantime, fans can check out two demo versions of songs from "The Dead Walk" on the band's MySpace page
"There are so many people today who are afraid to take their own stance. So many people just float through life with no meaning. They have no opinions of their own, nothing is theirs," says vocalist Vincent Bennett. "Yet at the same time, there are so many people who are so self-righteous, it's sickening. 'The Dead Walk' focuses on that."
Next up, The Acacia Strain will be playing at the 8th Annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival alongside several Prosthetic labelmates. Following that, the band will head back out on the road in May with The Red Chord and The Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza, and follow that up with a tour alongside Soilent Green in June.
