US metal heavy hitters The Acacia Strain have revealed that they’ll be dropping their 8th studio album, Slow Decay next month on July 24th, and to get you hyped up now, the band have unleashed not one, but two newbies for you, ‘One Thousand Painful Stings’ and ‘EARTH WILL BECOME DEATH’. The songs come in the form of a seven-inch titled Y, and one of the tracks feature a guest spot from Spiritbox singer Courtney LaPlante.
Vocalist Vincent Bennett shares his thoughts on LaPlante’s addition to the track, ‘One Thousand Painful Stings’:
“Shoutout to Courtney for adding her expertise — and different dynamic — to this song extremely last minute. Are we at the bottom? Are we at the end, or are we just getting started?”
The rest of the album will drop July 24th through Rise Records. Get keen and pre-order Slow Decay here!
