The Acacia Strain’s Vincent Bennett: “Please Stop Liking My Band If You Don’t Think Black Lives Matter”

Vincent Bennett of The Acacia Strain is not one to mince words. While the vocalist is definitely known for biting and nihilistic lyrics while punishingly heavy riffs stack over the top, he’s also someone who knows the ins and outs of the industry – and current events – quite well. That makes what Vincent posted on social media a couple days ago even more necessary in the dark times we live in.

His opinion is pretty clear when it comes to the protests amidst the tempestuous cavalcade of unjustified police brutality. Simply put, Bennett doesn’t want you listening to his band if you don’t think Black Lives Matter, and we’re not sure the frontman could offer up a more pointed response than this one.

The band also just released a new record on Rise Records, which we highly recommend as well. Get cracking if you haven’t.
