Edmonton’s PROTOSEQUENCE is preparing for a cross Canada tour this June, bringing their face-melting mix of modern and technical death metal to familiar Western Canadian cities and new ones in the East.
Having solidified their following in the underground scene around Western Canada, with appearances at Armstrong and Metallion Festivals along with touring through British Columbia and Alberta plus sharing the stage with such well-known acts including The Faceless, Angelmaker, Ingested, and Signs of the Swarm. PROTOSEQUENCE are now ready to conquer the Eastern side of Canada on their June tour in support of their two EPs 'Biophagous' (2017) and 'Schizophrene' (2016) along with a new fresh single set to be released in April. The band is looking forward to partying with existing fans as well as gaining new ones who might also be admirers of similar sounding extreme metal acts such as Abiotic, The Faceless, and early Fallujah.
The band adds: "We are really excited to be finally hitting some cities in the East as well as returning to some of our favorites in the West. We have been tucked away reinventing ourselves and can't wait to show people the "New" Protosequence. If we are in your town, come out and say hi. Let's have a drink and talk metal, pets and partying."
Protosequence was formed in the spring of 2014 by five guys who shared the same goal: create an array of songs that reflected each of them personally. As Autumn approached that year, the band started to play in Edmonton, as well as Central and Southern Alberta. Releasing their debut 4 song EP "Schizophrene" in January of 2016, they quickly established a name for themselves in the Edmonton and area metal scene. Bassist Ryan Schaffler left the band in early 2017, with Jacob Teeple filling the vacancy seamlessly. After taking to the road, completing a 10-day tour of Western Canada in June, they hit the studio and released their sophomore 4 song EP "Biophagous" in August of 2017. 2018 saw Protosequence solidify and expand their following around Western Canada. Playing Armstrong and Metallion Festival, touring through BC, as well as sharing the stage with touring acts like The Faceless, Angelmaker, Ingested, Signs of the Swarm, Bodysnatcher, and others. In August, vocalist Joe McKee announced his retirement from Protosequence, with guitarist Kyle Hunter following suit a few weeks later. Protosequence quickly added Josh Hahn to the mix on vocals after seeing him perform with his previous band, Seraphic Nihilist. Shortly after Metallion Festival, the band convinced him to move from Prince George, BC, to the motherland: Edmonton, Alberta. With no luck finding a replacement guitarist, the band pressed on into writing mode.
