Protest The Hero are making their mark on the hard rock, hardcore, heavy metal and post-whatever scenes, thanks to the progressive, metallic, and so-far-left-of-center-that-it-hangs-out music on their latest album, Fortress. Formed seven years ago in their hometown of Whitby, Ontario, when they were just 14-years old, PTH spent weekends, holiday breaks and summers on the road and on the very same day they graduated from high school they began a headlining tour of their home turf. While spending their formative years in a van playing shows, they also released an indie EP called A Calculated Use Of Sound, which was followed by their 2005 debut, Kezia, which wowed critics and introduced fans to the bandas mature-beyond-their-years technical skills, passionate delivery, and outspoken nature. All of this activity culminates in the fiery metallic furnace that is Fortress, the bandas second effort for Vagrant Records.
