Protest The Hero have launched the pre-orders for their new album Palimpsest, due for release on 19th June via Spinefarm Records. The pre-orders, available HERE, include an exclusive UK vinyl.
“Palimpsest is by far the most challenging record we have worked on,” says guitarist Luke Hoskin. “The writing and recording process saw so many delays, it’s honestly hard to keep them straight. We are very proud of how each hurdle was handled though, and the end result is a record that we believe is deserving of such an endeavour.”
“This record was extremely difficult for me personally,” adds frontman Rody Walker. “With my first child on the way, I built a studio in my basement to ensure I wasn’t leaving my wife alone with a new child for weeks on end. I haven’t left my house since. What made it most difficult was the change in my voice. During our final tour, just before we were set to start recording, I blew my voice out, and it didn’t come back. I spent a long time fighting with it trying to bounce back and failing. Finally, through coaching and rehearsal, I got it back into shape. For the first time in my life, singing felt like an actual job and I’m still pissed about it. I have never worked harder to put out music in my life and I am extremely proud of the product.”
The have recently released a video for their new single The Canary, which is inspired by American aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart and named after her bright yellow bi-plane.
