Protomartyr Takes A Pit Stop in Ann Arbor

. January 28, 2016.
protomartyr-feat

Led by Joe Casey on vocals, this four-man band makes a quick stop in Ann Arbor before continuing on their 2016 Spring Tour. Protomartyr approaches its music with the sense of urgency expected of a post-punk band, but stands out with its surprisingly emotional subject matter and grabbing words. Taking inspiration from their lives and native city of Detroit, the band’s most recent album The Agent Intellect boasts songs with what the New York Times described as “some of the strongest lyrics of 2015.” Catch their show and lose yourself in the music this Friday. Must be 18 or older.
