PROTEST THE HERO To Release 'Scurrilous' In March

Canadian metal band PROTEST THE HERO will release its third studio album, "Scurrilous", in the U.S. on March 22 via Vagrant Records. The follow-up to the five-piece band's critically acclaimed 2008 sophomore release "Fortress" reunites the band with producer Julius "Juice" Butty. The record was mixed by producer/engineer Machine.

PROTEST THE HERO will begin its world tour with dates in Europe from January 26 through February 12 supporting DARKEST HOUR. Following an appearance at Australia's 2011 Soundwave Festival, the band will begin an extensive Canadian and U.S tour March 23 with support acts MAYLENE AND THE SONS OF DISASTER and TESSARACT. The Canadian leg of the tour will be sponsored by D-Tox Clothing.

"Fortress" came out on January 29, 2008. The band has previously stated that "Fortress" does not revolve around a single concept, like "Kezia", its 2006 debut, but is instead more closely akin to "goddess worship in the tradition of Robert Graves."

PROTEST THE HERO released a live CD/DVD titled "Gallop Meets The Earth" in August 2009 via Underground Operations/Universal Music Canada and Vagrant Records in the U.S. The disc includes footage of the band's December 18, 2008 concert at the Sound Academy in Toronto and a number of bonus features.
