The Acacia Strain dismisses guitarist/songwriterSunday, May 19, 2013 8:26 AM PT / 18,714 views
As you may know, The Acacia Strain has had an unusual arrangement with guitar player Daniel "DL" Laskiewicz for several years now. Specifically, Laskiewicz writes their music, but doesn't tour. Well, that arrangement has come to an end, as Laskiewicz has been given his walking papers. Here's what he had to say:
"Well, if you haven't noticed, I haven't played a show with The Acacia Strain in years and I've just been writing the music for them. I've 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 I'm still recording and producing and also have another project in the works. So once again, I WILL NOT be writing for The Acacia Strain anymore. It's been fun tas, later!"You'll recall that when Oceano parted ways with guitar player Devin Shidaker three weeks ago, we mentioned that he had possibly joined TAS. As such, it seems probable that Shidaker's arrival was the death knell for Laskiewicz's participation.
