After enlisting the talents of Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler to record their upcoming album ‘Volition’, Protest The Hero have confirmed Mike Ieradi (who also plays in newbie metallers The Kindred) as their new drummer.
The band commented; ‘We realized it was going to be impossible to select a drummer based on a YouTube video. We needed someone who we knew. Someone who we thought we wouldn’t murder and leave at the side of the road two weeks into tour. We think we have found that person in Mike Ieradi – a Canadian fella we met many moons ago.
[On the upcoming PTF tour, Ieradi] will be opening with his band The Kindred and 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!’.
‘Volition’ is released October 29th, and is self released by the band.
