Massachusetts heavy hitters THE ACACIA STRAIN have posted a brand new song, "Skynet", on their MySpace page. The track comes off the group's new album, "Continent", which is scheduled for an August 19 release through Prosthetic Records."'Skynet' is a band favorite," vocalist Vincent Bennett says of the track. "We figured we should debut some of our 'different' tracks so when people pick up the album they are totally confused." "Continent" is now available online in five different, exclusive packages here. The first 400 pre-orders will come with an autographed 11" x 17" poster featuring album artwork by Paul Romano (MASTODON, THE RED CHORD, TRIVIUM). THE ACACIA STRAIN's fourth full-length release, "Continent" was produced by Zeuss (SHADOWS FALL, HATEBREED, GOD FORBID). The band recently completed a successful headlining tour across America with support from ALL SHALL PERISH, THE WARRIORS and SINCE THE FLOOD, culminating in a hometown show this past weekend in Holyoke, Massachusetts which was filmed for an upcoming DVD release. THE ACACIA STRAIN will take a few days off at home before departing again for Europe alongside ANNOTATIONS OF AN AUTOPSY and KNIGHTS OF THE ABYSS. Corey Sidle of HeavyMetalSource.com conducted an interview with THE ACACIA STRAIN frontman Vincent Bennett on June 15, 2008 outside The Hudson Theatre in San Bernardino, California.
