Formed in 1999 as Happy go Lucky, Protest the Hero is a Canadian Metal band from Whitby, Ontario . They have released the EP A CalculatedUse of Sound (2003) and their full length Kezia (2005) with the indie label Underground Operations. On January 23, 2006 the band officiallysigned with Vagrant Records for United States releases. Kezia was released in Canada on August 30th, 2005 and in the US on April 4, 2006.They toured from September 2005 to June 2006 in support of Kezia as well as taking part in the Vans Warped Tour. Protest began writingtheir second full length album in January of 2007 and finished the recording in August of that year. The album, Fortress, was released onJanuary 29th on Vagrant Records. Many of their older lyrics contain obvious political/social commentary, especially concerning the United States. However, on their latestrelease this commentary has been toned down significantly, using persistent themes and metaphors rather than blatant accusation,demonstrating their new outlook on the world and as song writers. Protest the Hero cites Between the Buried and Me, Jorge Salan and TheRed Chord as some of their main musical influences, and Fyodor Dostoevsky and DaneCook as some of their inspirational influences. The band comprises 5 members: Rody Walker (lead vocals), Tim Millar (guitars, live backup vocals), Luke Hoskin (lead guitars,live back-upvocals, piano), Moe Carlson (drums) and Arif Mirabdolbaghi (bass guitar, live death vocals). Each membe rof the band has developed theirtrade significantly over the years they have been together. For their most recent album, rather than writing songs in their musicalboundaries, Protest wrote music that they could not play, and then forced themselves to learn how to play it over the last two years. Protest the Hero's popularity is slowly expanding outside of punk/metal/hardcore scenes in and around the cities and towns they haveperformed in. Now teamed up with Universal Music Canada for distributional services, Protest the Hero hopes to become popular over most ofCanada and, with their recent signing to Vagrant Records, the United States as well. In 2004 they won the Canadian Independent Music Awardfor Favourite Metal Artist/Group, beating more known band Alexisonfire. They were nominated for the 2006 Canadian Music Week IndieAwards'Favourite Metal Artist/Group, which was presented during the first week in March. In addition, members of the band appeared in atelevisedcommercial for the instrument store, Long & Mcquade. « hide
