Protest the Hero to perform in the Maritimes in April, on sale Friday

Protest the Hero have announced a huge North American tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of their Fortress album.

The tour will include two dates in the Maritimes, Halifax April 24th at the Marquee and Moncton April 25 at Tide & Boar.

Fortress features 10 tracks broken into three movements, separated by piano interludes. Describing the LP, former PTH bassist and lyricist Arif Mirabdolbaghi, “ If I had to reduce it to its simplest form, the concept is about the re-emerging of goddess worship and the erosion of faith in scientific process.”

Added lead vocalist Rody Walker, “This album is nothing to be intellectualized. All talk of wonder, pathos and optimism aside. I feel it’s a very natural progression for us. A natural progression into further obscurity.”

Support for the tour will be announced in January 2018.
