Published Mar 12, 2008Supporting their sophomore release, Fortress, Protest the Hero were out on tour with headliners Silverstein to unload their audacious progressive metal all over the U.S., however, the band have now pulled out to regroup, according to a post on the band's MySpace page.
"It is my unfortunate duty to inform you all that we will not be continuing on the SILVERSTEIN tour. While on tour recently, we realized our internal structure was built on a whimsical foundation. We have become a disorganized touring band, and it's left the five of us exhausted and miserable," stated lead singer Rody Walker. "Ergo, we are revamping, whipping our team into shape, polishing our rims, straightening our brims, and making a stab at semi-professionalism. Though dropping a tour may seem like a very unprofessional thing to do, we need this time to get our shit back on track. "
The band are scheduled to return to the U.S. in April to go on tour with Chiodos until they join the Vans Warped Tour for its entirety. With a long list of touring dates approaching, these chaps will need to get their shit together so they don't become "disorganised, exhausted and miserable again.
