Protest The Hero - Fortress in stores 28/01/08

The 10-song set was produced by Julius “Juice” Butty and recorded at Silo Studios in Hamilton, Ontario. “This album is nothing to be intellectualized,” stated lead singer Rody Walker. “All talk of wonder, pathos and optimism (blindfolded) aside (hink). I feel it’s a very natural progression for us. A natural progression into further obscurity. I am of the belief a lot of the people who work for us were hoping for a stab at a more commercially viable album, however we wrote what we wanted without linear boundaries and created something less commercial than ever. Some fans of the band will hate it. And some people who hate the band will love it. All others can rot.” The band has not revealed any further details, other than to indicate that Fortress will not revolve around a single concept, like Kezia, their 2006 debut but is instead more closely akin to “goddess worship in the tradition of Robert Graves,” according to lyricist and bassist, Arif Mirabdolbaghi.
