Protest the Hero Announce Fortress Tenth Anniversary Tour


2008 will mark the tenth anniversary of Protest the Hero’s much-beloved (and rightfully so) Fortress. So, to celebrate, the band will embark on an extra-special tour, during which they’ll play the album in its entirety. Or, as the band puts it, rather drolly:

“So apparently time passes us by pretty quickly and ‘Fortress’ has already been out for 10 years (at the end of Jan)! If that’s not insane enough, we are actually going to try to remember all these tunes and play them…sequentially…at a city near you!

“We hope you can make it out to one of these. Normally, we couldn’t say this with any semblance of conviction, but these shows might be the ones to actually get advanced tickets for. Some of these venues are on the small side and could fill up quickly! Anywho, it’s your life – we are just here to do anniversary tours…”
