THE ACACIA STRAIN Parts Ways With Guitarist

Fresh off supporting THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD and FROM A SECOND STORY WINDOW along with Prosthetic labelmates LIGHT THIS CITY, Massachusetts' THE ACACIA STRAIN has returned home before hitting the road again in January and February.

Stated vocalist Vincent Bennett: "The Daniel [Dan Daponde, guitar] has bowed out gracefully. For those of you have been asking about Daniel J. Daponde, here are your answers: due to health problems, Dan has been forced to leave his position as a badass guitar player in THE ACACIA STRAIN. We miss him a whole bunch, and we are sure you all do as well. Wish him luck in his future endeavors!

"We are NOT currently looking for a replacement. Please stop asking. When we do end up looking for another guitarist, we will let you know. For now, here is what you might want to strive for:

1. At LEAST one year of tour experience as a musician
2. Commitment to us and the road, we are never home.
3. A good attitude!
4. Willingness and the ability to write music.

"There is more, but like I said...We aren't really looking right now. DL [Daniel Laskiewicz] is doing pretty well on his own.

"The tour with THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD, FROM A SECOND STORY WINDOW, and LIGHT THIS CITY was fucking amazing! Thanks to all who came out and had a good time! See you again in January/February!

"Speaking of which, we are touring in January/February with JOB FOR A COWBOY, PSYOPUS, SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY and DAATH! DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO MAKE IT TO ONE OF THESE SHOWS. It's going to be bruuuuuutal. See you there!"
