If you’re anything like me and have squandered many an afternoon attempting (failing) to perfect them pretty little piano ditties that serve to enhance the overall Protest the Hero listening experience, (think ‘Isosceles’) you’re gonna be quite stoked to hear that the man behind (many of) the jams, Tim Millar, has launched a Bandcamp page dedicated to his piano stylings. Check it out after the jump.

Protest enthusiasts will recognize ‘Isosceles’ as the interlude between ‘Spoils’ and ‘Wretch’ on the band’s second studio album, Fortress, though perhaps not right off the bat, as the Bandcamp version features an extended introduction. There’s some fresh material to be had, as well. ‘Determination’, which Tim describes as “the orphan that nobody wanted to take home”, is the love child of an unused film score and a segment from a Volition recording session that couldn’t be worked into the record.
When asked about the inspiration behind the project, Tim had this to say: “Finally, I have a place to share some of the piano ideas I’ve been working on over the past little while. Now that I have an outlet, I hope that this will be the beginning of many of the songs I’ve shelved over the years finally seeing the light of day. “
We certainly hope so too!
Though the page currently features just the two (albeit highly impressive) songs, expect big things in the future, including but not limited to further ivory tickling and downloadable sheet music!
