Protest The Hero have finished writing their second full-length album and will start recording this weekend.
The Canadians, who released Kezia in 2005, spent most of this year on tour, with Dragonforce, All That Remains and Trivium. Speaking of the new record, which is expected to come out in August, bassist Arif Mirabdolbaghi said:
“The new album is a further attempt towards bridging the distance between technicality and musicality. We hope to use organized and creative songwriting to explore, both sonically and thematically, the emotions, ironies and realities of our surroundings. The songs probe the paradoxical nature of everyday life- chiefly that aggressive music is an adequate vessel to convey not only feelings of anger and frustration, but also wonder, pathos and optimism”
