    Probably not, since he quit the band.

    I really like how heavy and groovy it is and I love the guitar tone.

    Didn't know that! I thought he was still a member who just didn't tour.

    DL didn't quit, he was kicked out.

    The 2 songs on the split that Above appears on were done by Will Putney. That's why they sound so fucking good.

    I stand corrected haha. But @stone, you're right, he did write but not tour prior to that.

    The mix on this EP is pretty great, but the guitar riffs are unbelievably boring IMO.

    DL wrote most of the Acacia stuff but hasn't toured with them for years. Jack and Kevin are the backbone of Acacia, though, and had a lot to do with patterns/structure and wrote some riffs/breakdowns. Vincent is also obviously a huge part of it, but losing DL is not a bad thing for Acacia. The new guys are insane guitarists and writers in their own rights (ex-Oceano and Molotov) and coming from someone who's toured with them, I've never seen Acacia better live than I have with the new lineup.
