Hungarian metal magazine "Kettõnégy" conducted an interview with the Whitby, Ontario, Canada-based pop math metal upstarts PROTEST THE HERO on November 22, 2008 when the band performed in Budapest, Hungary as part of the Altamont Never Say Die! club tour. Watch the chat below. (Note: The clip also features performance footage.)PROTEST THE HERO recently filmed a video for the song "Palms Read" in Toronto with director Sean Turrell (BILLY TALENT, TEGAN AND SARA). On August 5, PROTEST THE HERO released a new, three-track EP that was made available worldwide exclusively on iTunes. The "Sequoia Throne Remix" EP includes three remixes of the band's current single created by three very different artists.
C0ndu1t, the cerebral industrial band from Canada, created the brutally intense first remix. The winner of a Metal Hammer magazine contest — known only as L-Ion — created the electro-heavy second remix, and the otherworldly atmospherics and textures of the third were created by Devin Townsend, record producer (GWAR, DARKEST HOUR, MISERY SIGNALS) and original member of influential heavy music pioneers STRAPPING YOUNG LAD.
"We were excited to hear what these remixers would do with the track," said singer Rody Walker. "We're not afraid of a little experimentation and now we can say that we have a club anthem!"
PROTEST THE HERO is touring behind its sophomore Vagrant release, "Fortress".
