After raising funds to produce their fourth album, Protest the Hero will release the resulting product October 29th in North America on Razor & Tie. The new release Volition, will also mark the start of an international tour in support, beginning in November with dates yet to be announced.
Fans supported the new album effort through the band’s crowdfunded Indiegogo campaign and the band has given hints at the release since being awarded the money. With the crowdfunding aspect stirring the pot in the metal world, the band crushed it, raising well more than double the $125,000 they were seeking to produce the album ($341,000), with record companies later signing on for distribution.
The day of the official album release, the band will also fill the album orders associated with the Indiegogo effort, which will also feature special additional offerings and artwork, according to a news release.
