Protest The Hero Launches Subscription Music

In an effort to release new music straight to the fans while still making money, Protest The Hero is launching a new subscription music service through Bandcamp. For $12 a year, you'll get access to one new song a month until the full album's worth of music is completed. The band comments:

"So here she blows! For a long time, we have been dreaming of a new way to bring you our music. We wanted something more direct than a standard album release and record cycle. After months of soul searching and a little bit of elbow grease, we proudly present to you 'Pacific Myth' - our new subscription song and video platform.

"At it's core, this is a 'song a month' platform which launches RIGHT NOW. We will be releasing a new song every month for 6 months, always on the 15th. In our opinion, this is the most direct way we can deliver you new tunes.

"We have chosen to lead things off this month with 'Ragged Tooth,' a cracking little banger of a song which we felt represented where we are headed with all of this. It's important to note that every song release will be accompanied with an instrumental mix of the song as well as hi-res album art, lyrics, and liner notes.

"All of the info for the subscription, the motivation behind building it, and the first song itself can be found here. Please share and spread the word. The success and visibility of 'Pacific Myth' is largely dependent on you!

"We truly appreciate your continued support as we venture down this new path. And don't worry, we aren't done with tradition full length records, we just need a break from em!" More...

Protest The Hero Posts "Mist" Video

Protest The Hero has released a video for "Mist," which can be seen below, and the band comments:

"After much ado, we are proud to finally premier our official video for 'Mist.' We made two trips back and forth to Newfoundland to make this one happen and we are really happy with how it turned out. As usual, we had too much footage to cram into just 4 minutes, so we made it longer!

"We hope you can take a minute to watch and learn about one of our favourite places on earth.
What better place to house the video than our brand new website is going to be a place where we can post whatever we want free of the worry that tons of you wont get it in your fb feeds...

"We have lots of stuff still to add, but it's a good start eh? Enjoy!" More...

Podcast

Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, Episode 13

This week, our Official Podcast brings you another round of live music recaps. First, co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) revisits the burgeoning local metal scene of Lynchburg, Virginia – previously covered here – with a rundown of its newly minted “Thursday Throwdown” series of concerts.

The second show, held at Phase 2 on Thursday, April 17th, presented a compact and delightfully complete ceremony of rock and metal tribute, starting with three-piece cover act Mourn The Illusion, continuing with progressive melodic metallers Unspoken, and culminating with headliners and local hard rock darlings Singleside ("Moving Forward" album review here).

Next up, co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) discusses a recent headlining performance in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, by Canadian bizarro-metal wackos Protest The Hero. Check out his thoughts about the bill, which included openers Intervals, eclectic tech-proggers The Safety Fire, and strangely, Detroit thrashers Battlecross.

Finally, your co-hosts react to the recently released single “All Rise” from Wovenwar, the new formation of As I Lay Dying members minus prison-bound frontman Tim Lambesis. Wovenwar features Jordan Mancino (drums), Nick Hipa (guitar), Phil Sgrosso (guitar), Josh Gilbert (bass/vocals), and Oh, Sleeper frontman Shane Blay (vocals).

Check out the podcast here, enjoy, and offer us your feedback.

Protest The Hero Bassist To Sit Out Tour Dates

Protest The Hero has checked in with the following announcement about bassist Arif Mirabdolbaghi missing upcoming tour dates:

"Arif has decided that the touring schedule we have signed up for to support Volition is more intense than what he is prepared to commit. He is actively involved with other projects at home and being a full time band member isn't a practical thing.

"Though he has and will be missed out on the road with his brothers, everything was left on a positive note and we are open to his involvement down the road and only time will see how it all plays out.

"In the meantime, our longtime friend and tourmate Cam McLellan will be filling in on bass duties for the rest of the cycle. As an amazing musician, co-writer and producer of Volition, he is more than capable to pick off where Riffy left off.

"Don't fret, Cam's working on his giant happy smile and well placed high kicks during our set!" More...
