Pre-Order Upcoming Protest the Hero Album, “Pacific Myth”
Protest the Hero is releasing a new album November 18th called Pacific Myth, and it’s available for pre-order now! The album will be released via Razor and Tie and will be available on 180 gram purple swirl vinyl with a colored insert of all six covers from the original releases. Additional bundles are also available! You can do a digital pre-order on the band’s Bandcamp also.
The songs were all previously recorded and released sole for members of the band’s Pacific Myth subscription platform. The album has resulted in six new tracks, each with correlating artwork. The band explains:
“Pacific Myth was purely an experiment. Normally, we take as much time as we need to write records – lots of which is spent procrastinating. With Pacific Myth, we didn’t have that luxury – we promised to release 1 song per month on the 15th of each month for 6 months running. What we discovered in writing these tunes was the fact that strict deadlines (even if self-imposed) do not allow for over-thinking – something we are incredibly guilty of on our four existing full length albums. Surprisingly, the constricting time frame lead to some risks in writing we wouldn’t have normally taken – or at least some risks we would normally have had the time to identify as “too risky” and then re-worked until we felt safe again. For this reason, it’s a totally “go-with-your-gut” record and one we are extremely proud of.”
