The Acacia Strain Post Video with Spiritbox Vocalist Courtney LaPlante


The Acacia Strain have released a video for “One Thousand Painful Stings,” a song from their recent album, Slow Decay.

Both the song and the video feature guest spots from Spiritbox vocalist Courtney LaPlante — weren’t we just talking about Spiritbox?? — the latter a socially distanced clip that features the band members mock-performing in their homes amongst various makeshift stage props, dogs, children, on the toilet and various other tomfoolery.

Frontman Vincent Bennett commented of the hilarious video, which he directed:

“Having a record come out during a pandemic is hard. No touring, no playing the new songs, no nothing. All of us live far away from one another, so we cannot do a cool livestream, either. We couldn’t even get together to make a music video, so we did this! Stay safe, stay sane, and stay away from each other!”

Truly a sign of the times, and done with the appropriate dose of The Acacia Strain’s trademark humor. Have a look below.

Slow Decay is out now; order here.
