6 Songs from Protest The Hero's Pacific Myth Subscription Platform Packaged Together for the First Time!
The six songs on Protest The Hero's Pacific Myth were previously recorded and released solely for members of the band's subscription platform of the same name. Intended as a way to create and distribute new music for core fans, Pacific Myth resulted in six new tracks, each with correlating artwork, that are now being packaged together physically for the first time. The individually released tracks have been fully remixed and remastered to create the cohesive sound of Pacific Myth which runs a little over 35 minutes. The album is presented here on limited edition colored 180g vinyl complete with a colored insert of all six covers from the original releases and a download for the instrumental counterpart of each track.
The band explains, "Pacific Myth was purely an experiment. Normally, we take as much time as we need to write records – lots of which is spent procrastinating. With Pacific Myth, we didn't have that luxury – we promised to release 1 song per month on the 15th of each month for 6 months running. What we discovered in writing these tunes was the fact that strict deadlines (even if self-imposed) do not allow for over-thinking – something we are incredibly guilty of on our four existing full length albums. Surprisingly, the constricting time frame lead to some risks in writing we wouldn't have normally taken – or at least some risks we would normally have had the time to identify as "too risky" and then re-worked until we felt safe again. For this reason, it's a totally "go-with-your-gut" record and one we are extremely proud of."
In addition to Pacific Myth, Protest the Hero have released four full length albums and have toured the world over. Originally hailing from Whitby, ON, Protest the Hero consists of four core members, Rody Walker (vocals), Luke Hoskin (lead guitar/vocals), Tim MacMillar (guitar/vocals), and Michael Ieradi (drums), alongside their longtime friend Cam McLellan filling in on bass.
