Biography

An observational lyricism and muscular sense of tension and release lie at the centre of Protomartyr's music. The environmental and economic conditions of their hometown of Detroit are a frequent source of inspiration for vocalist Joe Casey - themes that are expanded and extended to create an atmosphere of universal reckoning, driven forward by the intensity with which his bandmates approach their instruments. The results are dynamic, urgent and contemporary. A series of recordings that are equally dense and rewarding.
