Massachusetts based metallic juggernauts, THE ACACIA STRAIN have announced Tuesday, February 16 as the release date of their long anticipated debut DVD, the double disc set The Most Known Unknown, on Prosthetic Records.
Disc one documents a sold out show at the Worcester Palladium shot in December 2008, while disc two contains footage of a show at the much smaller and more intimate Waterfront on the band’s home turf of Holyoke, MA, as well as three music videos, a documentary covering the formative years of the band and a “10 Seconds of Fame” bonus segment, in which select fans were given 10 seconds on camera to do whatever they wanted. The Most Known Unknown, features cover art by Paul Romano, who also did the cover of the band’s album, Continent, as well as covers for Mastodon, Trivium and many more.
To celebrate the release, the band will be throwing a preview party at 7pm on Friday, February 12th at the Worcester Palladium Upstairs, which will consist of a screening of the DVD as well as a special live performance from the band.
