Earlier today, it was announced that The Acacia Strain has signed a new label deal with Rise Records. “These 11+ year veterans from western Massachusetts are ready to dive into the next phase and are happy to have found a home with Rise where they feel they will be well taken care of and continue to smash faces with their new material,” Rise Records said in a press statement. The Acacia Strain are expected to release their first album via Rise sometime in October.
This marks the end of The Acacia Strain’s partnership with Prosthetic Records, who released the deathcore group’s last three albums. However, this also marks a rather big signing for Rise Records, who recently lost their biggest act, Attack Attack!. So while it may not be an earth-shattering label move, it’ll definitely make an impact for both The Acacia Strain and the label.
