It has been a week of ups and downs for Protest the Hero. They scored a Juno award, but also have announced that bassist Arif Mirabdolbaghi is stepping away from the band. His departure comes less than a year after drummer Moe Carlson left PTH.
Ever wish you could be even closer to your favorite band when they're performing live? Thanks to Protest the Hero's new concert video for 'Tilting Against Windmills,' you get a pretty intimate view of what the band's show is like.
Canadian progressive metallers Protest the Hero will soon invade North America for a run of 2014 tour dates. A strong roster of supporting acts have been announced, including Battlecross, the Safety Fire, Intervals, Night Verses + Motorleague.
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.’
Protest the Hero's latest album 'Volition' is a week away from its Oct. 29 release, and the band is preparing to embark on a North American tour. Unfortunately, bassist Arif Mirabdolbaghi won't be joining the band on the trek.
Protest the Hero are ramping up to their fourth studio album, 'Volition,' and Loudwire is proud to bring you the exclusive stream of the disc in its entirey. You can take a listen to the effort above before it hits stores on Oct. 29 via Razor & Tie.
