Acres sign with Solid State and release single "A Different Shade of Misery"


South Coast, UK metalcore group Acres have announced they have signed with Solid State Records. Along with this announcement, the band released their new single "A Different Shade of Misery" along with a music video. 

Vocalist Ben Lumber sahred the following:

Lyrically this song is about regaining control of yourself and confronting your demons. I wrote this when I was at a really low point and I'd often sit there thinking, 'Man, you need to snap out of this.' At one point, I felt like my own worst enemy and I was fighting a war inside my own head. It's a really special song because, musically, it's a new direction and the start of a new era for our band. We've always aimed to reinvent ourselves with every release and this was one of those songs that just naturally came to us.


Acres is currently support for the Holding Absence tour.
