Protest The Hero release today the video for the track “Mist” from their fourth studio album, Volition. Shot in the province of Newfoundland, Mist is an 8 ½ minute mini movie showcasing an area that contains some of the band’s most dedicated fans. Newfoundland is not found on most band’s tour itineraries, but repeated visits by Protest the Hero has led to the building of one of the band’s most raucous fan bases.
Guitarist Luke Hoskin adds, “Making this video came in two parts. Originally, the plan was to film an “Island Tour.” We pestered our friend/promoter Johnny to book us as many shows on the island as possible. Begrudgingly, he dug us up two additional shows to the typical BIG St. John’s date. We hauled everything we could in two small minivans, and a gaggle of our wonderful NFLD friends tagged along in a couple separate vehicles. It felt more like a carnival than a tour – our motorcade invading gas stations and rest stops along the way. It wouldn’t have been the same without all those familiar faces there to help us at every step.
