Founded by Flip Twogood (guitar), Anson Clark (Bass) and Brendon Gottfredson (drums), Acacia Ridge was forged in late 2017. Looking to revamp their sound from a previous project, the trio quickly began the search for a vocalist who could help develop their new sound.
The group decided to make Christian Mayfield (vocals) the fourth official member of Acacia Ridge. Originally assigned rhythm guitar, it wasn’t until the newly formed band began to write original songs that Mayfield’s vocal talent was revealed.
Now in need of a permanent second guitarist, Twogood approached Alex Shillingford (guitar), who had played drums with Twogood and Clark before the two had met Gottfredson. Finally, Acacia Ridge had become a fully formed band.
The group began writing their first full length album in early 2018. Mayfield and Twogood took it upon themselves to push the band to write harder and faster songs, continually driving the band to new heights in terms of speed and complexity.
Entering the music scene with their first single Malevolence, Acacia Ridge is expected to hit the ground running in the new year. With one more single and an album scheduled for release in February 2019, this hardcore rock band is ready to change the music scene for good.
