Protest the Hero Name New Drummer
Mike Ieradi has been named as the new drummer of prog metal band Protest the Hero. The band say it was tough to find a replacement for Moe Carlson who left in June so he could get back to his studies, but Ieradi knows the band from way back in their past: "We had interest and video submissions from many friends, fans, and family alike. Every single one of those submissions was wonderful - but we realised it was going to be impossible to select a drummer based on a video.

"We needed someone who we knew. Someone who we thought we wouldn’t murder and leave at the side of the road two weeks into tour. We think we have found that person in Mike Ieradi, a Canadian fella we met many moons ago." Ieradi will continue to play in his current band the Kindred, who will be supporting Protest the Hero on their upcoming tour for the album "Volition." "I'm excited to be a full-blown member of a great band with some great friends. I hope you enjoy watching me sweat my way through two sets with Protest and The Kindred. It should be a fun one!" says Ierdi. Listen to "Clarity" by Protest the Hero here:
