THE ACACIA STRAIN Adds Second Guitar Player

Western Massachusetts' purveyors of all things heavy THE ACACIA STRAIN have confirmed the addition of second guitarist Jonathan Dennison (UNHOLY, ANOTHER VICTIM, PATH OF RESISTANCE, SANTA SANGRE) to the group's ranks. The band will depart for a headlining tour later this fall with support coming from DESPISED ICON, FULL BLOWN CHAOS and THE TONY DANZA TAPDANCE EXTRAVAGANZA.

"I couldn't be happier with our decision," comments THE ACACIA STRAIN frontman Vincent Bennett. "In my eyes, J.D. is the ideal choice. Everyone is really excited to have him on board and we can't wait to see what he has to offer this band. We're wicked excited for this tour. I've wanted to tour with all of these bands forever, and we finally are. We are going to be playing some songs that we haven't played in forever or haven't been able to play due to the lack of a second guitar and will be showcasing a new song or two. Sorry to our friends in the Great White North though, we are seriously trying to stay away from those dangerous snow-covered roadways. I promise we will make it up to you when the warmer weather hits. See everyone in November and December!"

THE ACACIA STRAIN continues to support the band's latest effort, "The Fall of Ideals", which saw a summer 2006 release through Prosthetic Records. The album spawned the video "Angry Mob Justice", which can be seen below.
