This is kind of awesome as fuck.
Lamb of God’s Chris Adler plays drums on the forthcoming LP from Protest The Hero.
“We know we have been silent for the past couple months while we record this beast, but we assure you it’s almost done and is turning out extremely well,” says the band.
“We plan on releasing our beloved ‘pupdates’ throughout the summer while we set up to release this new album so stay tuned for that. With all this incredible progress, however, we have some sad news. Our brother and friend Moe has decided to leave the band to go back to school in pursuit of some of his other passions.
“When our grueling studio schedule just wouldn’t work with his grueling 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!”
Can’t get much better than that.
The new album comes out this fall.
Adler adds: “I was thrilled to get the call to join up and help out my friends in Protest, 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.”
I can’t wait to hear this.
Adler spoke with us about the project a couple of months back, but did not reveal the name of the band he was playing for.
At the time, he said, “I’m excited about this project. It’s my first real session gig, where it wasn’t my band and they weren’t my songs. I made the most of it, and injected some of me into their stuff. I’m pretty excited about it and they are too.”
