MCD Presents: The Protomen
Time & Location
About The Event
Nashville rockers The Protomen announce headline show at The Grand
The Protomen are more than just a concept rock band from Nashville, TN... they are
messengers, riding atop an Iron Stallion (read: inside a mildly shitty tour bus) on their way to
deliver the most vicious rock 'n' roll fable that the world has ever known. With several
planned albums, and a live show that can crumble mountains, the future is in their hands.
Their first record, Act I, includes elements of Ennio Morricone, Queen, and Black Sabbath,
that culminate in a listening experience unlike anything you've ever heard. If you're afraid of
lo-fi sky cracking distortion and epic chaos, you won't survive this album. ct II is a departure
from the signature distorted sound of the first record. It focuses on a time before “the
world fell under darkness.” It is a brighter and more optimistic look at the world The
Protomen have created.
The album is split into two separate eras (and sounds), and gives the feeling of two distinct
albums in one. Act II was co-produced by Alan Shacklock (Meatloaf, The Alarm, Bonnie
Tyler, Babe Ruth, Roger Daltry) and The Protomen. The Protomen have spent the last 11
years building a large and fiercely devoted fan base by kicking some major ass, playing some
of the largest US festivals, and headlining their own tours across the US and choice parts of
Canada and Australia.
The Protomen will play the Grand Social on Tuesday September 3 rd with tickets from €16 on sale Friday
14 th June from 10am.
