Canadian progressive metal band Protest the Hero will be playing at the Knitting Factory in downtown Boise on Saturday, March 15.

Protest the Hero hails from Whitby, Ontario. The band formed in 2002 after changing their name from Happy Go Lucky.

They have released three albums via Vagrant Records, and their most recent album “Volition” was announced after the band dropped their label and independently launched a fundraising campaign in 2013 through indiegogo.com.

Their efforts raised them upwards of $340,000 from a sum of 8,361 donors. The album released on Oct. 29, 2013.

The band has shared the stage with a number of big-name bands such as In Flames, Bad Religion, Between the Buried and Me, Avenged Sevenfold and DragonForce.

The band has toured across Canada, the U.S., Europe, Australia and South America. PTH is currently on tour with Battle Cross, The Safety Fire, Intervals and Night/Verses promoting their new album throughout Canada and the U.S.

The doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 6:30.

General admission tickets cost $16 and Skybox/VIP tickets go for $41. Tickets are available both online and at the door.

The Knitting Factory is located in the alley behind the Ha’ Penny Pub and Happy Fish Sushi Restaurant in Boise’s BoDo.
