The Acacia Strain and After the Burial Plot Co-Headline Tour Celebrating 10th Album Anniversaries This Fall


The Acacia Strain and After the Burial Plot Co-Headline Tour Celebrating 10th Album Anniversaries This FallIf you’re a fan of The Acacia Strain or After the Burial, there’s a pretty good chance you first got into the bands on their 2008 releases, Continent and Rareform. With the tenth anniversary of both albums falling this year, both bands have decided to throw their longtime fans a bone by trotting out those seminal records in full on a fall co-headline tour.

From a band’s perspective it’s gotta feel kinda weird doing these anniversary tours. On one hand it must feel validating to perform these records that are so beloved to an adoring fanbase, like taking a victory lap of sorts. On the other hand it must be a bit strange to tacitly acknowledge that the art of yours fans love most isn’t what you’re doing now but was written a full decade ago. Know what I mean? In the end I suppose no one in these bands will mind all that much when their bank account balance looks decent upon the tour’s completion, and hey, they’ll have had fun getting it there, so fuck it.

Dates below. Erra are rumored to be opening, although that hasn’t been announced yet likely due to routing conflicts on their current Summer Slaughter trek. Tickets will be available here at noon on Friday, July 20th. The Acacia Strain are currently playing Continent in full throughout Canada and the northern U.S.; dates here.
