Prog-metal crew Protest the Hero are currently crushing crowds over in Europe with the songs from their latest LP Volition, but fans back home will get another taste of this action this spring when the band head out on their second North American tour behind the set.

The group will take a few weeks off once their previously announced stretch of shows across Europe concludes in February, but Protest the Hero will be back at it come March when they tackle a number of U.S. venues. The band will be joined on these Stateside dates by Battlecross, the Safety Fire, Intervals and Night Verses.

The Canadian portion of the trip begins April 8 in Moncton and will have the outfit making their way westward from the Maritimes out to the tour closer in Guelph, ON, on April 19. The Canadian leg of the journey will have Protest the Hero playing nightly with Toronto metal band Intervals and Moncton punkers Motorleague.
