The Acacia Strain have finally put out their tenth studio album, Slow Decay, in its entirety.
The record’s drop last Friday—which came two weeks after the band marked the tenth anniversary of their Wormwood album—was the culmination of a piecemeal release over five EPs this year, their five single-letter titles spelling out the word ‘DECAY.’
“It’s finally here,” the deathcore band wrote on Instagram on the release day of Slow Decay. “Thank you for sticking with us, thank you for believing, thank you for supporting. It’s been a long ride, and even though we are at the end; it truly feels like it could be just the beginning. It’s the final nail.”
The 12-track album includes features with Spiritbox vocalist and former Iwrestledabearonce member Courtney LaPlante, Zach Hatfield of Left Behind, Jess Nyx of Mortality Rate and Aaron Heard of Nothing and Jesus Piece.
