"The lights here are bright, the music loud, the people unified; The Protomen are calling."

-GQ"The Protomen are unequivocally unique... positively inspired... unmitigated awesomeness."-WIRED"So epic Mr. Roboto would blush."-Alternative Press"Protomen feature two of the best voices performing live today."-MetalSucksThe eight uniform-clad Protomen deliver epic songs with all the driving fury of the most bombastic hard rock hits of the '80s, and all the theatricality of the most over-the-top '70s prog. Queen, Bowie, Genesis, Styx, Springsteen, Journey, and Scorpions are some reference points for the uninitiated.The Protomen's storyline begins with the debut album, Act I: Hope Rides Alone, a post-apocalyptic tale of a dystopian world, followed by Act II: The Father of Death, a prequel, produced by Alan Shacklock (Meatloaf, Roger Daltrey). Act III is currently still in the works, but 2015's "This City Made Us" single hints at what is to come - "This City Made Us" drives forward with an '80s hard rock sound worthy of the Top Gun soundtrack. Since forming over a decade ago, The Protomen have been a favorite at festivals like Bonnaroo, SXSW, Warped Tour, Bamboozle, CMJ, and Comic Con, and have been handpicked by Tenacious D to open for them on more than one occasion. Whether rocking a big stage or a dirty dive, The Protomen deliver a feast for the eyes and ears and add new converts to their massive following.
