THE ACACIA STRAIN Part With Longtime Guitarist/Songwriter
DL, the non-touring member and studio wizard for The Acacia Strain, has called it quits and moved on to greener musical pastures.
Well that kinda sucks. According to DL's Facebook fan page:
Well, if you havent noticed, i havent played a show with the acacia strain in years and ive just been writing the music for them. Ive been informed today that they will continue on without me, meaning shows and writing albums. This is totally understandable and i wish the band the best. I'll be around, as im still recording and producing and also have another project in the works. So once again, i WILL NOT be writing for THE ACACIA STRAIN anymore. Its been fun tas, later! Check back on facebook.com/DanielDLLaskiewicz for updates on my work. Seeya round!
Now who the hell is going to pick up where DL left off? I guess there's good and bad in this, though. Bad because I liked DL and his production- friggin' Death is the Only Mortal sounded ridiculous. His riffs were pretty cool though, though they were getting a little more chuggy and a little less riffy as albums progressed. Good because I think it's important to tour with the guys you record with. They get to see how fans like stuff, they jam on ideas at sound check, stuff like that. So maybe we're not screwed out of good music here. But who is the replacement?
