New England's purveyors of all things heavy THE ACACIA STRAIN are set to appear on the nightly extreme metal radio show "Harder, Faster" on Boston radio station WAAF on June 6. The program airs Monday–Friday from 11 p.m. until midnight, and fans outside of the station's range can listen online at www.waaf.com. Host Mike Hsu will interview THE ACACIA STRAIN vocalist Vincent Bennett in anticipation of the band's June 13 release of "The Dead Walk", just prior to the band's departure for its upcoming tour alongside SOILENT GREEN and DEMIRICOUS.Produced by Adam Dutkiewicz (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE), who was also responsible for THE ACACIA STRAIN's 2004 album "3750", "The Dead Walk" features extensive design and artwork from Paul Romano (MASTODON, THE RED CHORD) alongside the band's bowel-shakingly heavy trademark sound. In the time since the band's last album, THE ACACIA STRAIN has dropped its provisional third guitar player, and in turn rotated in Seth Coleman and Kevin Boutot on bass and drums respectively, resulting in a sleeker, albeit more efficient band. "Seth and Kevin are two of the best things that happened to this band," Bennett says. "I honestly wouldn't want anyone else playing in this band. This is the most solid lineup we have ever had and I don't plan on it ever changing."
