PROTEST THE HERO
CHANGE RELEASE DATE FOR NEW ALBUM PALIMPSEST
FIRST ALBUM IN FOUR YEARS DROPS THURSDAY, JUNE 18, 2020
NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER HERE
Protest the Hero are moving the release day of their new album Palimpsest up a day to Thursday, June 18, to respect and honor Juneteenth on Friday, June 19.
In a collective statement from the band, they explain, "Many months ago, when we set the date of our record release, we decided on the date of June 19. When we realized our scheduled release day coincides with Juneteenth, we didn't feel right about celebrating our album when we should be observing the holiday. Recently we have been doing our best to look inward and acknowledge our prejudice and privilege. In doing so, we must recognize the importance of Juneteenth, and we don't want to detract from it in any way. Palimpsest will now be released on Thursday, June 18."
Pre-order is available HERE.
Protest the Hero have released five full length albums and have toured the world over. Hailing originally from Whitby, ON, Protest the Hero consists of four core members, Rody Walker (vox), Luke Hoskin (lead guitar/vox), Tim MacMillar (guitar/vox), and Michael Ieradi (drums). Known for being progressive not only in their sound but in their music business acumen, the bandlaunched a unique distro model when releasing their last record, Pacific Myth in 2016. Using a structured subscription service for fans, PTH delivered one track each month over a 6-month period of recording, as well as access to a gamut of original content not available anywhere else. The band has always prided themselves on approaching their craft differently than the rest of the pack exemplified in 2013 when their record label contract was up, and they set a precedent by approaching their rabid fanbase directly to help fund the recording of Volition.
