Conducting From the Grave has issued the following statement regarding dropping off the band's previously scheduled tour dates with Knights of the Abyss:
"Due to scheduling conflicts with getting studio time to record our vocals for our next album we are being forced to drop off our upcoming tour with Knights of the Abyss. We are extremely saddened by this, but the silver lining is that our album will come out sometime this year instead of early next year.
"We are definitely still taking part in the 'Time to Bleed' tour in October with Suicide Silence, Mychildren Mybride, The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza, and Molotov Solution. Our sincerest apologies to anyone who was planning on coming to see us on the Knights of the Abyss tour, this situation is completely out of our hands."

Massachusetts heavy hitters THE ACACIA STRAIN have posted a brand new song, "Skynet," on the band’s official MySpace page to celebrate the launch of pre-orders for the band’s forthcoming album, "Continent," now available online in five different, exclusive packages here. The first 400 pre-orders will come with an autographed 11"x17" poster featuring album artwork by Paul Romano (Mastodon, The Red Chord, Trivium).
"Skynet" is the lead track from "Continent" and is slated to be shot for a music video shortly; more details on that will be available soon. "'Skynet' is a band favorite," vocalist Vincent Bennett says of the band's new track. "We figured we should debut some of our 'different' tracks so when people pick up the album they are totally confused."
Scheduled for an August 19 release through Prosthetic Records, "Continent" is THE ACACIA STRAIN’s fourth full-length release and again features artwork from Romano who also supplied artwork for the band’s 2006 release, "The Dead Walk," and audio production from Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, God Forbid). The band recently completed a successful headlining tour across America with support from All Shall Perish, The Warriors and Since The Flood, culminating in a hometown show this past weekend in Holyoke, Mass. which was filmed for an upcoming DVD release in the future. THE ACACIA STRAIN will take a few days off at home before departing again for Europe alongside Annotations of An Autopsy and Knights of the Abyss.

SUN YOUR BUNZ will finish up on June 29th in Holyoke, MA, just minutes outside The Acacia Strain’s hometown of Springfield, where the band will have their set filmed for an upcoming DVD. The band will then bring the brutality overseas for a European tour with Annotations of an Autopsy and Knights of the Abyss.
"This is the best time of year to tour,” says The Acacia Strain vocalist, Vincent Bennett. “I couldn't ask for a better group of dudes to spend my time on the road with. Excited to see old friends and meet new ones. It is going to be a killer June. Come on out and SUN YOUR BUNZ!"
The Acacia Strain is also gearing up for the release of their fourth studio album, "Continent," which is due out on August 19th on Prosthetic Records. The band had the opportunity to work with acclaimed producer, Zeuss,(Hatebreed, Shadows Fall, God Forbid) on the release.
"We don't remember when writing a record felt this good,” explains the band’s guitarist, DL. “Continent has something to it that we never really tried before; some uncharted territory, but at the same time still left us room to do what we love doing best. There's a little something for everyone on this one...even that guy."
