New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Razor & Tie Media) Protest the Herohas achieved their highest Billboard chart debut in their career with their fourth album Volition. The album debuted at #20 in the U.S and #7 in their home country of Canada. Volition also debuts at #1 onBillboard Independent chart in the U.S.

In celebration of Volition's debut, the band today released their new video for the track "Underbite." Carrying on their tradition of being totally non traditional, the video features the band members as finger puppets. The band comments:

"We admit, we have had some pretty outlandish ideas for music videos in the past. We may not have hit it out the park with all of those ideas - but something tells me we are close with this one. When we brought up the idea of a full blown puppet video to our friend / director Marc, he laughed in our faces. He continued laughing for weeks until he remembered a friend of his knew how to make wonderful little paper puppets. That's when he got serious. He took on the idea with every bit of his creative being and this is the result. You may not like the song, you may not agree with the lyrics, but if you don't like the video, we don't like you."

VolitionPress Raves

"Polished combination of technical thrash, punkish melodies, and the mining of disparate influences, from '80s maestros Watchtower and Toxik to energy drink Mayhem like DragonForce and NOFX." - Alternative Press

"This is one of the greatest albums ever released in the history of metal." - New Noise Magazine

"This album may have very well moved me from a casual fan of the band, to a rabid fanboy." - Ultimate Guitar

"From beginning to end, 'Volition' is a wild ride that's grounded in excellent musicianship and innovative songwriting. It's very eclectic, sometimes pushing the limits and often hitting the sweet spot." - Loudwire

"Violation is easily the best work the band has done since Kezia, if not possibly better." - Outburn Magazine

From the second Volition starts, Protest The Hero are firing on all cylinders. "Clarity" is everything this band represents. Melodic memorable guitar licks, soaring vocals by Rody Walker, and unmatched musical technicality." -Metal Injection

"If "Clarity" is any indication of what's to come, Protest The Hero may have written one of the best albums of the year." - Bloody Disgusting
