“I’ve been a fan of Jess since Judiciary introduced me to her voice, and I’m extremely happy to have her on a song,” says singer Vincent Bennett. “Solace, serenity — enter the lucid dream. The second chapter is here. We descend further and further into our own undoing.”
The band previously issued the “D” seven inch and digital single. It included “Feed A Pigeon, Breed A Rat” and “Seeing God,” the latter of which features Aaron Heard of Jesus Piece/Nothing. Listen here. The release was heralded as “hellish” by Metal Injection, while Revolver deemed it “pummeling” and the sound of straight-up insanity.” Meanwhile, MetalSucks proclaimed, “So much new Acacia Strain music in such a short timespan! WHAT A GREAT TIME TO BE ALIVE!!”
