Tour de Force

The Acacia Strain, Fit For An Autopsy Announce Tour With Some Other Bands


The Acacia Strain 2015 Tour / Tune Low Die SlowThe Acacia Strain flat out rip faces live. A prominent NYC show promoter once told me that venues are hesitant to book them because of how actively frontman Vincent Bennett incites the crowd to fuck shit up… and how willingly the crowd follows suit.

As proof, check out this video clip that Veil of Maya’s Marc Okubo posted when he took over the MetalSucks Instagram account for a day during the Summer Slaughter tour:

Yeesh, right? Keep me as far away from the pit as possible, I’m a puss.

Apparently enough promoters the nation over decided it was worth the gamble, as The Acacia Strain just announced a nearly six-week long “Tune Low Die Slow” U.S. tour (plus dates in Montreal and Toronto) along with perennial MS faves Fit For an Autopsy (who themselves have a killer new song out; jam it). Some other bands are on the tour too, but they’re scene bands you probably don’t care about (Kublai Kahn are pretty heavy, though… maybe give them a shot?).
