The Acacia Strain drops off tour after accident

Official press release: It 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, nothing serious. Frontman Vincent Bennet 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."

I can't think of a more appropriate time to use "Vanflip Emmure should be on this."

Due to a serious accident Minor injuries, nothing serious

"Due to a serious accident Minor injuries, nothing serious" sounds like they wanted to get off this shit tour.


anonymous 11/27/2012 2:14:31 PM

I know I will get shitted on by many for posting this and I don't even like the acacia strain but kinda shitty of people to cheer on a band's van flipping, hard enough as it is for musicians to travel this time of year. I hope one of you flips your car and I'm the only one around to help you and just as you think I'm going to extend my hand to help you out, I piss in your face.

Rumor has it they were 2 stepping to Slave To The Game and were distracted which caused the accident.

anonymous 11/27/2012 2:36:03 PM

acacia strain is an actual band unlike emmure you stupid fcks lol self ownage. Both bands ripped off Papa Roach


anonymous 11/27/2012 2:36:35 PM

Bummer :( I was looking forward to knockin' some heads! IDGAF what anyone says about the Acacia Strain. You only hate because you're jealous of their awesome and catchy jams. Liked their older stuff. Back when they used to actually have real riffs and leads. Breakdown after breakdown is lame though. Wasn't gonna go to this show anyway. Tour with some good bands though and I may be down.


anonymous 11/27/2012 2:37:44 PM

Frontman Vincent Bennet 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." AND WE ARE ALL VERY GRATEFUL NOT TO HAVE YOU PLAYING YOUR gay AND STUPID MUSIC AROUND THE COUNTRY


anonymous 11/27/2012 2:54:08 PM

TAS did NOT rip off Papa Roach. Are you fcking retarted? Emmure is ripping off Limp Bizkit and are glorified Nu Metal.


anonymous 11/27/2012 3:01:56 PM

"I know I will get shitted on by many for posting this and I don't even like the acacia strain but kinda shitty of people to cheer on a band's van flipping, hard enough as it is for musicians to travel this time of year.

It's funny because it's ironic....go listen/read the lyrics to Skynet ya dingus.


anonymous 11/27/2012 3:03:09 PM

I'll tell you what, this accident was nowhere near as serious as I would have liked it to be. Do it right next time. I want fire and dismembered limbs all over the fcking road.


anonymous 11/27/2012 3:18:57 PM

At least everyone is okay. Their albums are good but the vocals suck live and having a fill-in guitarist all the time is retarded especially when that fill-in fcking sucks.


ninnymugget 11/27/2012 3:22:04 PM

Im pretty sure its never been said before so, Emmure is stoked.


anonymous 11/27/2012 3:39:01 PM

THE ACACIA STRAIN IS STOKED.


anonymous 11/27/2012 3:57:34 PM

Agree with skynet guy, all you people cheering about this vanflip are fcked--this should have been a much more serious accident w/ no survivors.


anonymous 11/27/2012 4:09:44 PM

Vince is a piece of shit, fck him and fck that band.


anonymous 11/27/2012 4:18:34 PM

After that last album, I would have finished the career.

Emmure rips off Jack Johnson. TAS takes dick shits on everyone else.


anonymous 11/27/2012 9:35:08 PM

Just came across this trying to find out where the accident happened and would usually never comment, but all you ignorant lames wishing deaths on others and trying to act cool look lame as fck and are probably still in highschool. I've never even listened to this band, so I'm not some crazy fan trying to defend them. But anyways definitely showing your age and ignorance. Jokes!


anonymous 11/27/2012 11:07:25 PM

I guess Baroness made vanflips mainstream and commercial. Yet another shit trend The Acacia Strain is riding for all it's worth.


anonymous 11/28/2012 12:29:49 AM

Van-Fail. Trailer-Win. Equiptment/Merch Packing Fail.


anonymous 11/28/2012 12:35:41 AM

I guess Baroness made vanflips mainstream and commercial. Yet another shit trend The Acacia Strain is riding for all it's worth. Next one will be Abigail Williams. Their new album will be ambient black metal with prominent vanflip influences.


anonymous 11/28/2012 12:37:23 AM

^ One after that will be just pure blackened vanflipcore. They mature musically over time, as we've seen.


Mitt__Romney 11/28/2012 12:46:12 AM

^ I suck just as much c-ck as him.


anonymous 11/28/2012 12:56:28 AM

I died at the Eric Warheim comment. This crash is so ironic. I bet the first thing that went through their head was "lambgoats gonna have a feild day with 'van flip x1000' jokes"

I wonder if they even knew you could save up to ten percent on your car insurance by switching to Geico..... gays.
