UK Live Dates Announced
Under Color of Official Right is the 2nd full-length album from the Detroit based post-punk band. Protomartyr’s economical rock elicits comparisons to possible antecedents like Pere Ubu or The Fall as well as local contemporaries like Frustrations or Tyvek (whose frontman Kevin Boyer played bass in an early iteration of Protomartyr). Singer Joe Casey has a dry declarative snarl that sounds similar to Nick Cave, the album is a darkly colourful listen, hit me back for a listen.
Protomartyr were a highlight at SXSW for a lot of people, catch them live in the UK this August…get in touch to set anything up.
