The Acacia Strain — vocalist Vincent Bennett; guitarists Devin Shidaker and Mike Mulholland; bassist Griffin Landa; and drummer Kevin Boutot — are pleased to announce their new studio album “Step Into the Light”, out May 12th, 2023, via Rise Records.
The album was produced by Randy Leboeuf (Every Time I Die, Lorna Shore, Bad Omens).
The band has also shared the visualizer for the new track “FRESH BONES” and it finds them in beast mode, as usual. Check it out below.
“Excited to finally be able to talk about the next chapter of The Acacia Strain”, says Bennett. “As soon as you think you know what you’re getting, we try to surprise you. Hold your breath for a bit — we might just surprise you again”.
“FRESH BONES” follows “UNTENDED GRAVES” , which arrived with much fanfare in December of the last year. Rock Sound stated that the band “goes harder than absolutely everybody else”. Brooklyn Vegan lauded the track as “enough to get us very intrigued about what else they might have up their sleeves”. Elsewhere, Revolver tipped the band on their 55 Most Anticipated Albums of 2023 list.
Clearly, anticipation for a new The Acacia Strain album burns at a fevered pitch!
