The Acacia Strain have inked a deal with Rise Records and plan to release their new album through the label this October. The following press release was issued on the matter:

“Rise Records is proud and honored to announce the signing of THE ACACIA STRAIN. Notorious for being one of the heaviest bands around, THE ACACIA STRAIN will surely quiet any doubters when they unleash their debut album for Rise this October. These 11+ year veterans from western Massachusetts are ready to dive into the next phase and are happy to have found a home with Rise where they feel they will be well taken care of and continue to smash faces with their new material.

Over the past decade, The Acacia Strain has crisscrossed the world many times establishing an international presence and diehard fan base. The band speaks often about being equal to their fans and not putting up with anyone trying to fuck with you.

Being humble and having no ego are just a couple of traits that The Acacia Strain have that make their fans feel like they are a part of everything the band does. Their blue collar upbringing in western Massachusetts has a direct effect on their lyrics and song writing. With their high level of street cred and passion for making music, The Acacia Strain are the real deal.”
