Canadians Protest The Hero are pleased to unveil a set of headlining tour dates across the European grounds, scheduled for November/December, 2014. They will be accompanied by several bands: The Faceless, The Contortionist and Destrage (on certain dates). This tour will be the last one executed in support of their latest album Volition, released back in October, 2013.
After some speculation, Canadians Protest The Hero have addressed bassist Arif Mirabdolbaghi's status in the band. Arif will not be touring with the band for the Volition touring cycle and will be replaced by longtime friend of the band and tourmate Cam McLellan. The band is open to Arif Mirabdolbaghi's involvement in the future but right now he can't commit as a full time band member.
Protest The Hero don't take themselves too seriously and their new video proves just that. The Canadians have just debuted a new video for the track "Underbite" which is as they called it, "a full blown puppet music video". Director Marc Ricciardelli is behind the video now available for your viewing pleasure below. Fingers...
If you are thinking "what will I listen to next?", you can always listen to the new Protest The Hero album Volition because the band has made it available online in full and on YouTube. How is the band sounding on their fourth album? Is it better than Scurrilous or Fortress? You can be the judge of that. As for the official release date of the opus, it is set for October 29th.
After announcing their new drummer, Protest The Hero are back in business with a new the lyric video for the track "A Life Embossed" from their new offering Volition. Don't miss out on the opportunity to listen to another new song from the progressive metalcore outfit below. October 29th is right around the corner and that is when you can grab the album.
If you remember well, Protest The Hero announced that Moe Carlson had left the band and it was Lamb Of God's drummer Chris Adler who recorded the drum tracks for their new album Volition. Now their new drummer has been found and announced. Filling the slot permanently will be Mike Ieradi, a Canadian drummer who plays in The Kindred. Judging by the pic the band shared, he seems to capture the spirit of the band, and fits in really well.
Canadian progressive metalcore outfit Protest The Hero have unveiled the complete artwork that will grace their upcoming album Volition, found underneath the O-card cover on the digipak CD version, and the vinyl cover. The band had invited fans to join an interactive website where they could uncover the artwork and later posted the complete NSFW artwork online. Take a look at it below. Moreover, the group is also streaming online another new track, "Drumhead Trial", and you can listen to it now. It features Kayla Howran on vocals and a guitar solo by Ron Jarzombek as well.
Canadian progressive metallers Protest The Hero feel like sharing today so they are streaming a brand new song, the first from the upcoming Volition album, and also shared the cover art done by Jeff Jordan for the standard release of the album and tracklist. You can see the cover art below. The vinyl release of the standard issue will have an alternate artwork. More importantly, the music, now you can listen to "Clarity" at this location or over here.
Progressive metalcore outfit Protest The Hero are slowly starting to reveal more about their new album. Now we know that the follow-up to Scurrilous is coming out on October 29th and will be called Volition. That is all we know for now but the band promises that the tracklist, artwork, and "all that other crap" shall be unveiled soon too. Hopefully, new tunes will also be released.
Protest The Hero's Indiegogo campaign to fund their new album was a huge success but the Canadian quintet has been silent for the past couple of months. The recording process is almost done and the album should be out sometime in the fall. However, the progressive metal band was quietly dealing with its first ever line-up change. Moe Carlson, their longtime drummer, had decided to leave to pursue school and some of his other passions. Lamb Of God's drummer Chris Adler was then recruited as a session player and has already recorded his drum tracks.
Protest The Hero have finally released some news about the plans for a new album. Having completed all of their obligations to record labels, the band has started a campaign to raise money for the production of the new record. Protest The Hero expect to start recording in March or April and have a new album out in the summer.
"C'est La Vie", the new video from Protest The Hero, can now be watched over at MetalSucks.

The Canadian leg of the tour will be sponsored by D-Tox Clothing.
Since it feels like forever since we heard any news from the Protest The Hero camp, guitarist Luke Hoskin decided it was time to inform us about the following PTH news:
"We just solidified the studio time for our next album that we have been writing for about three years or so. At least, it feels that way. We have successfully bribed our good friend Julius "Juice" Butty (Alexisonfire) to record it all at a brand new studio in Canada called "Jukasa". Our official start-date is August 30th and we couldn't be more pleased with the studio and producer.
When asked to describe the new music, we usually just get embarrassed and start to sweat. So take that in whatever way you want to - the one thing I can say is we actually have more than 10 songs for once."
