Protest the Hero released their debut album Kezia back in 2005. Now, a decade later, the band will be playing the album in its entirety with their original line-up on a 12-date tour across Canada.
The band made the announcement on their official website:
“We have been waiting to announce this little gem for a while now! Ever since we put up our “portal” for people to submit their Kezia memories / experiences for our scrap book, we noticed a huge demand for us to do a run of shows where we play this bad boy front to back. So we thought to ourselves…. “Why the frig not?”
Very proud to announce our first Kezia 10th Anniversary shows across Canada!
Even prouder to announce that we will be doing this thing with our original lineup! Yes, that means that Moe and Arif will be returning to the stage to indulge in a little bit of nostalgic magic.
We hope you can make it out to one of these because given all of our busy schedules, this isn’t going to be an ordinary occurrence… Tickets go on sale shortly so keep an eye out this coming week. We just wanted you to hear it from us first.
Now, we get down to remembering all these notes!”
The Canadian tour ends in early December, so maybe they’ll be time for the band to make a US run with Kezia. Earlier this year the band alluded to getting starting on a new album, which would be their first since 2013’s crowdfunded Volition.
