Members of Detroit’s Protomartyr rebel against the genre trap that every post-punk band seems to fall into and they’re constantly shaking comparisons to Joy Division or the Fall. The stoic and aquatically challenged Joe Casey, Greg Ahee, Scott Davidson, and Alex Leonard first stepped into the studio in 2011 with only four hours of studio time booked. In that time, they cut 21 songs and the band’s coveted debut, No Passion All Technique. Since then, they’ve released three records, all of which challenge the notion that they are merely a throwback act. Protomartyr will support Austin hardcore pioneers … And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, as they perform their 1999 sophomore record, Madonna.
