PROTEST THE HERO

PROTEST THE HERO

Protest The Hero have carved an identity for themselves that is so revolutionary within heavy music that to call them “unique” would be like calling Louis C.K. “pretty funny” or the classic “Star Trek” television series “influential sci-fi.” The band effortlessly balances high-minded artistry with wit and whimsy, substantive viewpoints with wanton tomfoolery and masterful musicianship with true songcraft.

Across Protest The Hero’s cinematic fourth album, Volition, spider-fingered arpeggios, walloping bottom heavy brutality and dynamically theatrical vocals the group have made their stock-in-trade remain unrivaled. Their storied career has earned them a Revolver Golden Gods Award, two Canadian Independent Music Awards, a Juno nomination, and millions of views online leading to a #1 debut in their home Canada. But it’s the groundswell of loyal supporters who’ve connected with the band’s spontaneity, authenticity and depth that continues to propel them forward: when they set out to crowdfund Volition, PTH met their goal in 24 hours and had more than tripled that sum when it was over.

CLOSURE IN MOSCOW

CLOSURE IN MOSCOW

We are here to combat the insidious narcissism that is slowly but surely pervading our collective subconscious, here to crop-dust apathy with the sexy flavor of the all new Diet Agent Orange™. We are here to compel you to dance your ass off in a trance of bliss, all the while morphing your reality tunnel in such a way that your perspective just might change on some shit… Nothing is true, everything is permitted. We are here to stand tall, ugly around the edges, take up arms and MELT. EVERY. FACE. OFF… (The good kind of metaphorical, aurally induced melting, not the horrible, body disposing, acidic kind.)

THANK YOU SCIENTIST

THANK YOU SCIENTIST

The 21st century progressive rock septet Thank You Scientist grew out of the music program at Montclair State University in New Jersey, where guitarist Tom Monda, saxophonist Ellis Jasenovic, and trumpeter Andrew Digrius met. The three shared a love for Frank Zappa, Mahavishnu Orchestra, the Beatles, and Harry Nilsson, and the group’s sweeping conceptual sound rises from those influences. Vocalist Salvatore Marrano, bassist Greg Colacino, drummer Odin Alvarez, and violinist Ben Karas were added to the fold, making Thank You Scientist a monster experimental band at home with progressive rock, jazz fusion, classical, metal, psychedelic, and pop, and unafraid to blend and mix all of them. The band self-released an EP, The Perils of Time Travel, in 2011, before signing with Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez’s newly launched Evil Ink Records. Their 2012 debut, Maps of Non-Existent Places, was a critical success, making inroads on the Billboard Hard Rock and Heatseekers charts as well. They followed up in 2016 with Stranger Heads Prevail, which cracked the Billboard Top 200.
