UK four-piece Acres has shared new single and video “Nothing” featuring Garrett Russell of Silent Planet. The track is taken from their forthcoming album, Burning Throne, set for release March 3rd via A Wolf at Your Door Records.
Lead singer Ben Lumber shares:
‘Nothing.’ is probably the heaviest song we’ve ever written and one of my favourites from Burning Throne. We were really stoked to have our good friend Garrett Russell from SILENT PLANET feature on this song, we’ve never had a feature on one of our records and we knew it had to be someone special to us!
Speaking on the collaboration, Garrett Russell says:
My friendship with ACRES was formed on the road. In rest stops between long drives, in graffiti-laced green rooms behind dilapidated dive bar stages – that’s where this collaboration all started. However much I enjoy the band ACRES, it could only pale in comparison to my love of the individuals behind the sound. Through the years they’ve continued their grind and I think this new release shows what they are capable of. It’s an honour to join them on this new step of their journey and I believe the best is here and still, somehow, yet to come.
Burning Throne follows their debut record, Lonely World and builds on that sound. The album is an “account of what it means to stare into your own oblivion and learn about who you really are from it.” The record features the previously released tracks, “When You’re Gone,” “Into Flames,” “ Hold On,” and “Burning Throne.”
Coming up, the band will be heading out on tour in support of Dayseeker on their UK tour. They will be visiting 6 cities across the UK.
