PROTEST THE HERO
Protest the Hero is a progressive mathcore band from Whitby, ON, Canada.

On January 23, 2006 the band officially signed with Vagrant Records for Kezia's United States release. Kezia was released in the US on April 4, 2006.

Daybreaker out now! Everywhere! Everywhere.......everywhere.
Bullet Tooth is excited to announce the signing of Affiance from Cleveland, OH. "Affiance", meaning to betroth in trust and confidence, is a name that can be taken to heart as these guys have banded together and endured every trial a new band faces. Affiance kicked down doors, shattering expectations, and broke the mold of how metal "should" sound. Affiance is confident that they present a new
breed of metal that is intense, with vocals that soar, and live performances that leave the harshest critics in awe.
Affiance is preparing for the release of their first full length album, "No Secrets Revealed" on Bullet Tooth this Fall. "We are very excited and we believe, with the help of Bullet Tooth, we will be able to work harder, push further, and accomplish more than we ever have before," says Brett Wondrak (Guitar). The album is 10 songs of intricately written metal fused with harmonies and vocals that will leave the listener humming along after the first listen. Lyrically Affiance touch on political and religious themes, and lyricist and vocalist Dennis Tvrdik commented, "We are a band that strongly believes in the pursuit of truth and happiness. In order to achieve these ideals we must delve into concepts and that we often don't want to think about. We hope that through our music we can inspire people to think for themselves and be pro-active in society".
The band wrapped up a recent full US tour with their friends in Across The Sun (Metal Blade) and No Bragging Rights (Blk Heart Group) and gained tons of new fans in the process. Most importantly, scoring a record deal. When Bullet Tooth Pres. Josh Grabelle saw the band on this tour, he said, "These guys were one of the best live bands I had ever seen. I truly needed to see them play live to make sure Dennis' vocals weren't studio magic, and they certainly weren't! I was blown away. The whole band was incredible, and the songs on this album are gonna knock people's socks off." It should also be noted that the night Affiance played in NJ there was a hurricane with 60+ MPH winds and rain... proving nothing will stop Bullet Tooth from seeking out the best new music!
