The Acacia Strain has released another new EP, this one featuring “Solace And Serenity” and “The Lucid Dream“. The latter features guests vocals from Mortality Rate frontwoman Jess Nyx. The EP is called E which follows the EP they dropped in late February called D.
Pure speculation on my end, but it appears the band’s latest album is being broken up into two-track EPs, which are being appointed a letter in order to spell out a word. The artwork for the first EP D , displays a lively tree with flowers, birds, and a very bright tone, while the artwork for E displays what seems to be a continuation of the previous artwork, though this time it appears to be darker. I assume the next two tracks to be released will be titled A followed by T, to eventually spell out D E A T H over the course of the entire release. I also believe the artwork will gradually move into a darker tone with the background for the final release H being nearly black.
The Acacia Strain vocalist Vincent Bennett commented on the EP:
“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. Solace, serenity — enter the lucid dream. The second chapter is here. We descend further and further into our own undoing.”
