Ontario prog-metal band Protest The Hero have finally announced some more information surrounding their upcoming full-length. While details like an album title or release date remain under wraps for the time being, we do know that the band have teamed with Razor & Tie Records for the standard US release of the Indiegogo-funded album, which is slated for release this coming fall. Here’s part of what the band had to say:
We can’t thank our dedicated contributors enough for putting us in the driver seat. It has been an arduous process because we have had to create two completely different packages for this album. One will be the exclusive release which will only go to people who contributed to our campaign. The other is going to be the more standard release which we hope everyone will see on record store shelves (and digitally, of course). We realized pretty quickly after recording that we were going to need some help with the distribution of the traditional release. We knew we wanted our album to be available around the world in as many formats as possible. With this in mind, and with our new found sense of control we have teamed up with some new pals. All of which are completely on board with our non-traditional view moving forward. No advances, no multi-record deals, no hidden agendas.
The band released their latest album, “Scurrilous,” in 2011 on Vagrant Records. We’ll keep you posted as more details surface on their upcoming album.
