Offering a rush of groovy guitar parts met with story-filled lyrics and serene, landscape-sized instrumentals that roll like hills into a valley, Edmonton, AB’s PROTOSEQUENCE will be embarking on their “The Greasy BC” tour this June in support of their latest release “Schizophrene” along with premiering new material that can only be heard live from their forthcoming follow up. The tour is presented by Temple Entertainment and Odessa Music Management plus sponsored by Absolute Underground and will kick off in Abbotsford, BC on June 10th and wrap up with a hometown show in Edmonton, AB on June 17th. Supporting PROTOSEQUENCE on the tour will be Calgary melodic progressive death metallers PLAGUEBRINGER. (dates listed below)
Guitarist and vocalist Parker commented:
“This tour marks our return to beautiful British Columbia, and this time we come with friends! Our buddies in Plaguebringer are gonna be raging with us, so if we hit your town, come hang! Let’s get greasy, liquor and cheeseburger style.”
Protosequence is a reference to the original genome where all life began — much like the band, which existed in principle before they even had a presence. Each of the members were lying in wait to be activated and become the strain that is now Protosequence. Kyle Hunter (guitar) was constantly crafting near-complete songs that were ready to be realized. It did not take long for Kyle and Logan Vars (drums) to finally meet. It seemed as though there were two projects destined to combine into a singular effort to form the final line-up for the band: Logan (drums), Kyle (guitar), Parker (guitar), Joseph (vocals), and Ryan (ex-bassist). Members have a long history in the Edmonton music scene, playing in bands like Anubian and In The Midst Of A Murder since the early 2000s.
The band draws influence from acts like All Shall Perish, August Burns Red, and The Black Dahlia Murder. With a foothold on their influences, they root their music in technicality while layering emotional, yet gruff vocals weaved into every track.The band transitions seamlessly through djent riffs, grinding drums, and groove elements, making their sound versatile and ever-changing. Each live performance is crafted like an album played from front to back, with each song bearing a story and painting the room like a canvas — leaving the colours and experiences on each audience member.
The band is currently planning to release another EP as a follow up to their 2016 release ‘Schizophrene’ that will be announced early 2017.
