"When our gruelling studio schedule just wouldn't work with [Moe's] gruelling school schedule, we realized we would need to find a session player for the new album. With Moe's guidance and approval, we found us a nice match in Chris Adler! Having known Chris for a few years, and with he and Moe being drum buddies, it seemed like a perfect fit. We are happy to say that Chris has already come and gone from Canada and has left us with some beautiful drum tracks."
Chris says he was thrilled to get the call to join up and help out his friends in Protest The Hero:
"How could I turn down one of my favorite bands? I've done a bit of session work before with Testament and Ron Jarzombek but nothing this immersive. I lived and breathed this record for 8 weeks and even lived in Toronto for a month with the guys. The experience was intense to say the least. Some of the most demanding and intricate drum work of my career. I'm very proud to have been a part of the Protest family and can't wait to have you hear it."
Singer Rody says the upcoming record may be the heaviest to date, thanks to Chris Adler's influences:
"Chris is coming from such a different spot than us. We come to heavy metal through punk rock. It must have been strange for him playing some punk beats, and some of the punk beats he plays in a heavy metal way. This may come out being one of our more heavy-sounding records, or more metal-sounding record."
The new Protest The Hero record is tentatively due in the fall.
