THE ACACIA STRAIN ARE THE MOST KNOWN UNKNOWN
A little over a year ago I was invited to go see The Acacia Strain play a sold-out show at the Palladium in Worcester. I wasn’t able to make it, but everyone I spoke to who did said it was INSANE. All caps like that, dude: INSANE.
Luckily, David Brodsky and his crack team of metal video makin’ nutjobs were there to capture the action, and the concert flick will be included on The Acacia Strain’s new DVD, The Most Known Unknown, which now has February 16 release date via Prosthetic.
In addition to that complete show, a press release tells us that the DVD will contain the following:
“…footage of a show at the much smaller and more intimate Waterfront on the band’s home turf of Holyoke MA, as well as three music videos, a documentary covering the formative years of the band and a “10 Seconds of Fame” bonus segment, in which select fans were given 10 seconds on camera to do whatever they wanted.”
I don’t think there’ll be any film of TAS front man Vincent Bennett fighting with Manure Emmure’s Frankie Palmeri, but if the footage Brodsky captured of the Palladium show is as good as the footage he shot of God Forbid for their DVD a couple of years back, this thing is gonna be well worth whatever you pay for it.
Bonus: awesome Paul Romano cover art!
You can pre-order The Most Known Unknown here; there is, of course, a version that also comes with a t-shirt.
