« Ravers claim "reduction of visibility in both eyes" after swimming in glow-in-the-dark pool at a Sunset Park party | Ty Segall and Oh Sees add NYC show at Death by Audio after sold-out date at The Well »

Milkwaukee's Protestant practice a brand of dark hardcore that is evident on their new 12" due Friday (9/21) via Halo of Flies. Reclamation isn't too far removed from the spirit of fellow Milwaukee rippers Enabler, both going for the jugular with crust-influenced hardcore that flirts heavily with melody but never quite loses its muscle. Stream all of Reclamation below for the first time, and you can buy a copy here.
Protestant are celebrating the release with a string of shows that include a stop on October 1 at Acheron with Gang Signs, Grudges and Brickeater. All other tour dates are listed below.
