The Acacia Strain guess the album name contest begins today

here's a cool contest idea from The Acacia Strain, plus their official release date -


Western Massachusetts' chuggernauts THE ACACIA STRAIN, have completed work on their new album, which will be released July 20th in North American and August 2nd in Europe. The band recorded the follow up to 2008's "Continent" at Planet Z Studios in Hadley, MA with Zeuss (Hatebreed, Chimaira, Shadows Fall) handling producing, mixing and mastering. The band chronicled the sessions through a series of video blogs. Check out the latest, and final blog HERE. 
The band is also running a contest through twitter to guess the title of their new album. Each day at noon EST, the band will post one letter of the album title. The first fan who can properly guess the title, will win a T shirt. Follow the band twitter.com/theacaciastrain
