Protest The Hero Announce Departure Of Drummer Mike Ieradi


Canadian progressive metal outfit Protest The Hero have announced the departure of their drummer Mike Ieradi. An official statement on the matter was issued today (August 03rd) and reads as follows:

“It’s with many emotions that we announce the departure of long time band mate and pal Mike Ieradi. Mike joined PTH in late 2013 as we were beginning to tour Volition. In addition to being a ripper on the kickers, Mike was a heavy-lifting writer on Pacific Myth and Palimpsest and you’ll even hear his influence on what we release next. We wish him all the best as he pursues greener pastures.

Though we’ve yet to determine who will be filling his silly little drum shoes, PTH is planning to continue performing live and making new music in the not so distant future. More on that later.
Here’s some words from Mike himself

‘With nothing but love , I will be stepping away from Protest The Hero. Our show in Edmonton next month will be my last.

It’s been just under a decade of the best times, the best pals, the most laughs, and incredible experiences.

From the bottom my my heart, thank you to every single person who has made this chapter of my life unforgettable.

The band’s final live show with Ieradi will take place at Union Hall in Edmonton, AB on September 11th. Other bands on the bill that night include:

Misery Signals
The Fullblast
Living With Lions
(‘The Holy Shit Years‘)
Calling All Captains
Drive By Punch
Nicolas Rage
Medical Pilot
