The Acacia Strain release new single 'Bitter Pill' from upcoming album 'Gravebloom'
The Acacia Strain - Bitter Pill

For the past year, Massachusetts metalcore band The Acacia Strain have been working on the follow up to their 2014 studio album Coma Witch. A week ago, Rise Records posted a teaser of some new music from the band with the hashtag #Gravebloom. It turns out that's the name for The Acacia Strain's new record, which will be the first release to include bassist Griffin Landa, who joined the band in 2015, and guitarist Tom "The Hammer" Smith, Jr., who joined last year.

Today, the band released the first single from the record titled "Bitter Pill." Pre-orders for Gravebloom are live over on their Merchnow page, and there's eight bundles available for purchase. You can also just pick up the record on vinyl, CD, or digital download. Gravebloom will arrive worldwide on June 30. The record was produced by Will Putney, who has worked with acts such as Stray From The Path, Like Moths to Flames, and Thy Art Is Murder.

The Acacia Strain will spend this summer plugging the new album on the Vans Warped Tour. The outfit will be a part of the Mutant North Stage, which also includes Being As An Ocean, Candiria, Hatebreed, and Fit For A King. You can check out their upcoming shows below.
