Western Massachusetts heavyweights THE ACACIA STRAIN will release their new album, "Death Is The Only Mortal", on October 9 via Rise Records. The CD is being produced by guitarist Daniel "DL" Laskiewicz at his Western Massachusetts studio.Regarding the decision to have Laskiewicz helm the new album, vocalist Vincent Bennett previously said, "You all love DL, so it makes sense for us to go ahead and do the album this way and keep it heavy right from the source of where this all comes from." THE ACACIA STRAIN in April released a new song, "Servant In The Place Of Truth", via iTunes and Amazon. Having recently signed a new deal with Rise, the band wanted to put out something new in between labels for fans to enjoy. THE ACACIA STRAIN's latest CD, "Wormwood", sold around 6,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 67 on The Billboard 200 chart. THE ACACIA STRAIN's previous effort, "Continent", opened with 5,600 units to land at No. 107. THE ACACIA STRAIN released its first live album, "The Most Known Unknown", in June 2011 via Prosthetic Records.
