Protest The Hero announce new drummer

Posted by AP on 11/10/13

Protest The Hero have announced Mike Leradi (of The Kindred fame) as their new drummer, following the departure of Moe Carlson prior to the recording of the band's new album "Volition" (out October 28th via Spinefarm Records), on which studio drumming was handled by none other than Chris Adler. The band released the following statement regarding Leradi's arrival:

Finding a new drummer has proven to be a tough task!  We had interest and video submissions from many friends, fans, and family alike (yes, Choadie's mom sent in a video of her ripping ‘C'est La Vie!’).  Every single one of those submissions was wonderful, but we realised it was going to be impossible to select a drummer based on a YouTube video.  We needed someone we knew.  Someone who we thought we wouldn't murder and leave at the side of the road two weeks into a tour.  We think we have found that person in Mike Leradi – a Canadian fella we met many moons ago.


What's that you say?  Mike is already in another band?  Yes, he is.  He will be playing in two bands on this upcoming tour of North America.  He will be opening with his band The Kindred, and will then wrap the night up playing with us.  Despite pulling double duty on this tour, he IS the newest member of pth and will hopefully be with us until we hang up the old jazz picks.  No pressure, Mike!
