Protest the Hero Deliver Forceful Headlining Show in New York City

Liz Ramanand, Loudwire

Protest the Hero have been trekking around in promotion of their new album, ‘Volition,’ and they blew the lid off Gramercy Theater on Friday (Dec. 13) during their explosive sold-out gig.

The ‘Volition’ album was funded by fans through an Indiegogo campaign, and it’s apparent how diehard Protest the Hero fans are when witnessing their energy at a show. The band kicked off their set with a new track ‘Underbite’ and also performed other fresh tunes such as ‘Clarity’ and ‘Tilting Against Windmills.’

The band’s technical music skills heard throughout their records are undeniable in a live setting. If fans weren’t singing songs word for word and playing air guitar note for note, then they were jumping, moshing and crowdsurfing the whole night through.

Perhaps it’s their Canadian charm that New Yorkers loved or it could be frontman Rody Walker’s open sense of humor. In between songs, fans got a comedy show as Walker shared intimate bathroom stories and hilarious tales about walking around New York.

It was a frenzy of pure power and chaos as ferocious fans went apes–t during older favorites ‘Bloodmeat,’ ‘C’est la Vie,’ ‘Sequoia Throne’ and the band’s encore performance of ‘BlindfoldsAside.’

Even though UK band Architects had to drop off of the remaining dates of the tour, support included lively performances by the Kindred, whose raw and primitive energy got fans going, as well as Ohio metalcore act Affiance and Rhode Island band Scare Don’t Fear, who opened up the show.
