After seeing their latest album "Wormwood" debut at #67 on Billboard's Top 200, Massachusetts' THE ACACIA STRAIN are proud to announce their first headlining tour since the release of "Wormwood," last month.

The "To Catch a Predatour" sees THE ACACIA STRAIN heading out along the East Coast and in Canada with support from THE RED CHORD, TERROR, GAZA, and THE CONTORTIONIST. In typical THE ACACIA STRAIN fashion, the guys plan to bring the fun each night by hanging out at their merch table thirty minutes after doors to meet the fans and socialize. There will be a special t-shirt available for purchase only during this time in addition to all their new tour merchandise.

If you are in the Holyoke, MA area on the 20th of November, be sure to come out to the Waterfront Tavern as this show will be a benefit for a dear friend of the band who recently passed away due to a decade long battle with cancer.
