Protest The Hero Detail New Album “Palimpsest”, Debut “The Canary” Video


After premiering their new single “The Canary” earlier today, Protest The Hero have now announced a June 19th release for their new album “Palimpsest“. The album will be the band’s first since 2016 with the recording process having been stalled a few times due to problems frontman Rody Walker suffered with his voice. The band’s guitarist Luke Hoskin commented:

“‘Palimpsest‘ is by far the most challenging record we have worked on. 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 endeavor.”

Walker added:

“This record was extremely difficult for me personally. 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 in 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.”
