HAPPY offerDING!!THIS ITEM IS PART OF A LIMITED RECORD LABEL PRESALE PROMOTION. SEALED CD COMES WITH AN ADDITIONAL BOOKLET SIGNED BY THE BAND! Across Protest The Hero's cinematic fourth album, Volition, spider-fingered arpeggios, walloping bottom heavy brutality and dynamically theatrical vocals the group have made their stock-in-trade remain unrivaled. Their storied career has earned them a Revolver Golden Gods Award, two Canadian Independent Music Awards, a Juno nomination, and millions of views online leading to a #1 debut in their home Canada. But it's the groundswell of loyal supporters who've connected with the band's spontaneity, authenticity and depth that continues to propel them forward: when they set out to crowdfund Volition, PTH met their goal in 24 hours and had more than tripled that sum when it was over."We thought, 'This very well could end our band,' but we dove in headfirst," frontman Rody Walker explains regarding his band's crowdfunding experiment. "The fans responded in a way we could have never expected. It really rejuvenated us. It was a breath of new life."Protest The Hero's fourth album contains some of their heaviest and most progressive material, while alternately offering increasingly melodic punk elements that open the door to even bigger horizons. "The music is still bat-shit crazy a lot of the time, but there's more structure," Luke Hoskin notes. "On our first two albums, I'd play them for friends and they'd say, 'This part was cool but it never comes back!' That was the intention at the time. Now we bring parts back and expand on them."Volition boasts the heaviest song Protest The Hero has even written, "A Life Embossed," a fast-paced and complex barnstormer with dissonant guitars. It's topped with vocal declarations against breed-specific legislation regarding pitbulls. "Plato's Tripartite" is infused with even more venom for modern events, decrying the misogyny that can lead to physical abuse, demanding that society take a shared, collective responsibility.The first song the band wrote for the album musically, "Tilting Against Windmills" (the title is from "Don Quixote"), rails against the homophobia of religious fundamentalists. "I almost called the song 'Kirk Cameron is Gay,' but I was vetoed," Walker says, with a laugh.As much a career long culmination in style and spirit as a new chapter in their continuing evolution, Protest The Hero's Volition sits mightily alongside the catalog, the music videos, the mandatory crowd participation of their performances and every other detail of the band's expression, part of a burgeoning legacy built on truthfulness and artistic independence. Commercial conquering has never been the goal; making statements, planting a cultural flag of sorts, has always been paramount.....a must have for any Protest The Hero fan or collector!!ITEM WILL SHIP APPROXIMATELY ONE WEEK AFTER SCHEDULED RELEASE DATE OF OCTOBER 29, 2013PLEASE CONTACT SELLER WITH ANY QUESTIONS. HAPPY offerDING!!
