Protest the Hero
Canadian progressive metal band Protest the Hero have been making waves with their fourth studio record ‘Volition,' which featured drum work from Lamb of God stickman Chris Adler. Loudwire caught up with guitarist Tim Millar, who spoke about working with Adler and recording the new album as a whole. The axeman also discussed Protest the Hero’s 2014 touring plans, among other topics. Check out our interview with Tim Millar below:
Protest the Hero have taken plenty of creative risks over the years and the band continues to push their artistic boundaries when it comes to their videos. The group's latest clip for 'Underbite' is a definite undertaking, serving as more of a short film starring a bunch of finger puppets.
Crowd funding has quickly become a popular way for bands to pay for new albums, and Canadian rockers Protest the Hero's new disc ‘Volition’ represents the epitome of a successful crowd funding campaign. The band ended up raising an incredible $341,000 via Indiegogo. That would probably pay for one Katy Perry song to be recorded, but for a metal band’s recording budget, it’s a massive amount of dough. With those resources available, it raised the bar and increased the expectations for ‘Volition.’
Fans should be very excited about Protest the Hero's fourth studio album, 'Volition.' The band has already unleashed two true bangers, 'Clarity' and 'Drumhead Trial,' and to get your mouth foaming even more, the Canadian progressive metal band has released a lyric video for the new track 'A Life Embossed.'
Protest the Hero raised $341,000 independently through Indiegogo to fund their new album 'Volition.' Fans of the band absolutely threw their hard-earned money at Protest the Hero, and with the new track 'Drumhead Trial,' the Canadian band is certainly giving those fans their money's worth.
