PROTEST THE HERO To Film 'Palms Read' Video

Whitby, Ontario, Canada-based pop math metal upstarts PROTEST THE HERO will film a video for the song "Palms Read" in September in Toronto with director Sean Turrell (BILLY TALENT, TEGAN AND SARA).

As previously reported, PROTEST THE HERO has set an August 5 release date for a new, three-track EP that will available worldwide exclusively on iTunes. The "Sequoia Throne Remix" EP will include three remixes of the band's current single created by three very different artists.

C0ndu1t, the cerebral industrial band from Canada, created the brutally intense first remix. The winner of a Metal Hammer magazine contest — known only as L-Ion — created the electro-heavy second remix, and the otherworldly atmospherics and textures of the third were created by Devin Townsend, record producer (GWAR, DARKEST HOUR, MISERY SIGNALS) and original member of influential heavy music pioneers STRAPPING YOUNG LAD.

"We were excited to hear what these remixers would do with the track," said singer Rody Walker. "We're not afraid of a little experimentation and now we can say that we have a club anthem!"

"Sequoia Throne Remix" EP track listing:

01. Sequoia Throne – C0ndu1t Chupacabra Remix
02. Sequoia Throne – L-Ion Remix
03. Sequoia Throne – Devin Townsend Remix

PROTEST THE HERO will be main support for UNEARTH on a 26-date tour that begins October 1 in Baltimore, MD and wraps on October 30 in New York City. PROTEST THE HERO is touring behind its sophomore Vagrant release, "Fortress".

Commented Walker: "We have always enjoyed and respected the music that UNEARTH create so it's a relief to finally be touring with a band that we care to watch. On top of that we haven't been touring the States too extensively in the past few years so it will be nice to be back for a legit tour… if not for the smokes and cheap booze alone."
