Thrice release video for “Hurricane”

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Sunday, April 9, 2017 at 10:45 AM (PST)

The gents in Thrice have always been amazing songwriters whatever mode they write in and this “new” sort of alt rock mid tempo near hard rock ballad is still an exciting and mature moment for the band. The new song “Hurricane” is from last years excellent To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere and the video plays kind of like a mini movie of sorts more than a performance clip or some such. It is seeming to examine ideas of innocence, the passage of time and self reflection (at least it seemed to me watching it).

Interview-Tim Millar of Protest The Hero

Posted by NichTheHair on Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 6:16 AM (PST)


In news of the astounding, I recently interviewed Protest The Hero’s Tim Millar. As some of you know, I have been garnering opinions in my interviews this year on the increasingly popular crowd sourced funding. From tour accommodations and transportation, to robbery replacement and van repair, more and more bands are asking for their fans help. This is definitely a subject I have been exploring and was thrilled to get it straight from the trailblazers of this method. Protest The Hero are setting the bar for all others to follow. Regardless if you agree with their method or not, Volition is a kick ass album in their already ridiculously amazing catalogue and the first to be funded with such an overwhelming success.

Protest the Hero splits with drummer Moe Carlson

Posted by GageT on Friday, June 7, 2013 at 8:13 AM (PST)

Protest the Hero Scurrilous Album CoverSo 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.

The band are also offering a free download of the track here.

Recorded in Santa Monica with Dave Schiffman the album, Dustin Kensrue has this to say about their latest offering:

“It’s definitely the most natural progression from record to record that we’ve had in a while. We did The Alchemy Index, which was totally different [from Vheissu]. Then Beggars was kind of the reaction against that. This kind of makes sense coming out of Beggars, but it’s definitely a different record.”

Album review: Protest The Hero – “Scurrilous”

Posted by NichTheHair on Tuesday, March 22, 2011 at 2:28 PM (PST)

Canadian prog prodigies Protest The Hero release their third studio release on Vagrant today. Returning is Julius “The Juice” Butty, who produced their previous two albums. Vocally, Rody Walker is on point, but the violent backings from bassist Arif Mirabdolbaghi are not nearly as prevalent as they are in their previous release, “Fortress.” Musically, the band is at the top of their crop in the metlcore kingdom, relenting nothing. A fist-to-face style consistency ensues onward through the album as Walker belts out fiery and forlorn lyrics, which seem to be grounded more in reality than the conceptual myth and fantasy of their previous works.
