The Acacia Strain Part Ways With Guitarist
December 26, 2006
Fresh off supporting Through The Eyes Of The Dead and From A Second Story Window along with Prosthetic labelmates Light This City, Massachusetts' The Acacia Strain has returned home before hitting the road again in January and February.
Stated vocalist Vincent Bennett: "The Daniel has bowed out gracefully. For those of you have been asking about Daniel J. Daponde, here are your answers: due to health problems, Dan has been forced to leave his position as a badass guitar player in The Acacia Strain. We miss him a whole bunch, and we are sure you all do as well. Wish him luck in his future endeavors!
"We are NOT currently looking for a replacement. Please stop asking. When we do end up looking for another guitarist, we will let you know. For now, here is what you might want to strive for:
1. At LEAST one year of tour experience as a musician
2. Commitment to us and the road, we are never home.
3. A good attitude!
4. Willingness and the ability to write music.
"There is more, but like I said...We aren't really looking right now. DL is doing pretty well on his own.
"The tour with Through The Eyes Of The Dead, From A Second Story Window, and Light This City was fucking amazing! Thanks to all who came out and had a good time! See you again in January/February!
"Speaking of which, we are touring in January/February with Job For A Cowboy, Psyopus, See You Next Tuesday and Daath! DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO MAKE IT TO ONE OF THESE SHOWS. It's going to be bruuuuuutal. See you there!"
