ACRES Announce Their Signing To Tooth & Nail Records Via ‘A Different Shade Of Misery’

ACRES have announced their signing to Tooth & Nail Records in style, via the release of new single ‘A Different Shade Of Misery’.

The track represents a new era for the post-hardcore Portsmouth band and was produced by Landon Tewers of The Plot in You.

It also arrives with a brand-new video which you can check out below.

Discussing the new track and what it signifies for the band, vocalist Ben Lumber has said:

“Lyrically this song is about regaining control of yourself and confronting your demons.

“I wrote this when I was at a really low point and I’d often sit there thinking, ‘Man, you need to snap out of this.’ 

“At one point, I felt like my own worst enemy and I was fighting a war inside my own head. It’s a really special song because, musically, it’s a new direction and the start of a new era for our band. 

“We’ve always aimed to reinvent ourselves with every release and this was one of those songs that just naturally came to us.”

ACRES are already kicking-off the year with an explosive start, touring the US this winter in support of Holding Absence along with Capstan and Casey.
