Due to the overwhelming response to the lyric video for the track "Clarity" from the band's forthcoming album "Volition", Canada's PROTEST THE HERO have released a lyric video for one of the more socially conscious songs on the album, "A Life Embossed".PROTEST THE HERO lead singer Rody Walker, who wrote the lyrics for the track, says: "The boys in PROTEST THE HERO are long time dog lovers, it has come to our attention that there's injustice afoot! Our home of Ontario, Canada is the largest territory in all the world to pass legislation that discriminates against a specific breed of dog. This is a worldwide issue that the band is incredibly disturbed by. The song and video for 'A Life Embossed' attempts to draw much-needed attention to an issue that affects all dog lovers alike." After the departure of longtime drummer Moe Carlson, PROTEST THE HERO enlisted LAMB OF GOD's Chris Adler to sit behind the kit for the recording sessions of "Volition". Now with extensive touring on the horizon, PROTEST THE HERO has decided to fill the slot permanently with Mike Ieradi. PROTEST THE HERO's fourth studio CD, "Volition", will be released on October 29 (one day earlier internationally).
The long-awaited follow-up to 2011's "Scurrilous" (Vagrant), "Volition" has been licensed to series of worldwide partners who will help distribute and market it to both traditional stores alongside digital service providers, thus making the new record available on a worldwide scale.
PROTEST THE HERO and Razor & Tie will join forces for the United States, while the album will be released in Canada through Sony Music and in the rest of the word via Spinefarm. "Volition" track listing: 01. Clarity
