Last week, the PR hype train left the station at Protest the Hero HQ when the band issued their first “pupdate” for their upcoming crowdfunded fourth album. From here on out, more important details will begin to emerge, with the group announcing today that they will be releasing their new album Volition on October 28th.
On this release date, the band will also start fulfilling their IndieGoGo backer perks, particularly the limited CD and vinyl orders with special artwork different from the wide commercial release. Not much else about the album is known right now, but we can expect a tour from the group in November, and artwork and tracklisting for Volition will become available in the coming weeks. Exciting!
Keep up with Protest the Hero by following them on Facebook. Looking through it today, I caught up on some things I missed, like photos from the recording sessions featuring string players and IndieGoGo contributors.
