So I know we made a FB post about this yesterday when it was announced, but I figured we’d post the band’s full statement here regarding it. Your favorite Canadian dudebros Protest the Hero have parted ways with their longtime drummer Moe Carlson after Moe decided to go back to school. On the bright side, Chris Adler of Lamb of God filled in for the studio sessions, so we can be assured that the drumming of the new record will be fantastic. However, the statement doesn’t seem to say anything about who will be replacing Moe in the long run. We’ll keep you updated, of course.

“We know we have been silent for the past couple months while we record this beast, but we assure you it’s almost done and is turning out extremely well. We plan on releasing our beloved “pupdates” throughout the summer while we set up to release this new album so stay tuned for that.
With all this incredible progress, however, we have some sad news. Our brother and friend Moe has decided to leave the band to go back to school in pursuit of some of his other passions. When our gruelling studio schedule just wouldn’t work with his gruelling school schedule, we realized we would need to find a session player for the new album. With Moe’s guidance and approval, we found us a nice match in Chris Adler! Having known Chris for a few years, and with he and Moe being drum-buddies, it seemed like a perfect fit. We are happy to say that Chris has already come and gone from canada and has left us with some beautiful drum tracks.
Can’t wait for you all to hear it!“
