UK Tech-Fest has announced the second wave of bands taking over the Newark Showground from 5 to 9 July 2018.
Their latest EP, their ideological inspirations, science fiction, superpowers, video games, and the fabled Rody Walker Big Cock Appreciation Experience.
Protest The Hero took to the stage and began to wow the audience with their 15 years of technical skills the could only be raised in the lands of Ontario!
Pacific Myth has its flaws, but there are still plenty of things to appreciate here, and we have every reason to hope for more prog metal excellence in the future.
Protest The Hero guitarist Tim MacMillar shares a story for our Rock Heart segment wherein, in many ways, music saved his life. Check out his story!
We ran Protest The Hero guitarist Tim MacMillar through Rockblot, our take on Hermann Rorschach’s inkblot test. Get a peak inside Tim’s mind with this funny video.

Some people look forward to Christmas. Some people look forward to the best part of waking up in your cup, while others to DJ bedroom parties. I, on the other hand, mark my Advent calendar, ’cause I love the treats, for any upcoming Protest The Hero release in red Sharpie. I’ve been blue ear-ing since their 2011 release Scurrilous, and as with every Protest The Hero album, I learned a new word.
Featuring ridiculous interviews with Protest The Hero, In Flames, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and Goatwhore.
It may have been my 9th or 10th time seeing Protest the Hero, but they kill it every time and this performance was no exception. What a great way to start off the second day of Heavy MTL!
New York, NY: 6:30 in the morning we arrived outside the venue in New York City to ensure we wouldn’t have to fight for parking. Being that it was so early in the morning we parked the van and the most of us went right to sleep. We woke up to find that the spot we had parked in was a no-standing zone, and as no one was in our driver’s seat for a period of time we had received a ticket, and had to relocate. It was likely around noon at this point, thus making the disruption of our much needed rest, and our early trek in to the city for naught.
Cleveland, OH: Packed club this night, and it was probably the smallest place we’ve hit on the tour, so it made for a whole lot of squeezing our way through the crowd. Leading up to the set was a slow haze of mundane tasks, going back and forth between stage and van.
Opting to take a bit of time to ourselves for relaxation after the weeks of go, go, go, a good number of us spent our pre-show time lounging in the green room. We all casually went about our own pre-show rituals, and enjoyed a lightly humorous air of camaraderie. When we got the call to head towards the stage, we pushed our way through the throng, and made the night’s initial address.
Salt Lake City, UT: Salt Lake City is honestly a bit of a haze in memory, as it was preceded by a day long drive, and so much of the time was spent catching up on sleep. I (David) recalled waking just in time for sound check. Normally I find it best to allow myself at least 3 hours to wake up before doing any singing, as it can take the body a while to “reboot”, if you will, and be able to perform properly. No worries, I had thought, as there would surely be another hour or so before doors — not the case.
