Protest The Hero will release their new album, Volition, on October 28th, an adequately titled album if there ever was one seeing as the record was crowd funded. Now the Canadian band is streaming a new song, ‘Clarity’, from the album.
The band is still taking cues from their last album Scurrilous, which was broadly speaking a disappointment when compared to Kezia and Fortress. ‘Clarity’ has the bit between its teeth though and while the band haven’t fully reintroduced the harsher vocals, it still serves the band well as Rody Walker’s bombastic wailing clean vocals are more than capable of standing on their own and his vocal melody are instantly memorable. Meanwhile, the technicality of the guitars hasn’t been lost in the slightest, still striking the right balance between musicality and catchiness. Listen below.
