PROTOMARTYR/ SPRAY PAINT/ SHELLS @ Lager House 4/8
Record Release/ Tour kick-off for local heros PROTOMARTYR.

Under Color of Official Right, the new album from Protomartyr, out April 8th on Hardly Art records.

Recorded in a single weekend with Bill Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins (Wolf Eyes, Cass McCombs, Lower Dens, Six Organs of Admittance) at Key Club Recording Studio in Benton Harbor, MI, the album straddles studio professionalism and punk impulse. Shades of the band's less obvious pop and R&B influences can be glimpsed in the sinuous grooves of songs like "Maidenhead" or "Violent." Elsewhere, "Tarpeian Rock" places punk vitriol against a minimalist backing and "Scum, Rise!" casts shadows with guitars that alternately chime and clang.

It's emblematic of the band, this small moment captured and repurposed into something greater. Influences are managed the same way, condensed to a moment and ground into the new whole. The cheap outlet, crafted by cold hands in a poorly insulated practice space has, perhaps unwittingly, become a model of Motor City efficiency. And, more than that, it's produced a stunner of a sophomore album.
