This is the end.
Or maybe we’re well beyond the end.
Massachusetts metal dudes The Acacia Strain have decided to side with evil, inking a deal with Rise Records — home to basically everything that’s wrong with music.
The deal will yield a new album that’s expected for release in October.
This is just so weird. I guess they, too, needed to get off of Prosthetic. Bands seem to need to do that shit. It’s weird.
The Acacia Strain satisfied their contract with the label last June, when they released a live album no one cared about.
Do people still like this band? I was never actually a fan, so I have always just written about them for the likes of you…possibly. Let me know if I’m wasting my time.
