The Acacia Strain Want “Money for Nothing”


The Acacia Strain - Money for Nothing

Hey, didja know The Acacia Strain have a new EP called Money for Nothing coming out this month? It’s a rarities/b-sides collection with one previously unreleased song, “Money for Nothing,” and that song can now be streamed in full below:

I wonder if anyone under the age of 30 gets the album artwork reference. I’m gonna go with “no.” The track is in the style of older TAS material since that’s when it was recorded, and I’m of the minority that actually prefers newer Acacia Strain to older… but have a gander and see what you think.

The Acacia Strain’s Daniel “DL” Laskiewics had some not-so-nice things to say about Prosthetic Records, the band’s old label (they’re on Rise Records now) that’s releasing this collection:

 So I just found out a second ago that Prosthetic Records is putting out a “rarities” TAS record, without anyone knowing. It has b sides from Dead Walk and Continent sessions plus re brown noise from Dead Walk sessions. DONT BUY IT. DOWNLOAD THE FUCK OUT OF IT.

Reading between the lines here, my guess is that the band’s deal with Prosthetic called for one label-optional greatest hits / rarities release (this is quite common) and Laskiewics probably forgot about that or never bothered to read the fine print. On the other hand, I’m not sure why Prosthetic wouldn’t have notified the band they planned to release this EP; maybe there was some existing bad blood?

Money for Nothing comes out on February 19th. Pre-order it here for a mere $6.66.
