We all have goals for the future. Well thought out plans that seem so bullet proof at the time. We take ease thinking that if we stick to the plan nothing can go wrong. Four young men from the middle of Indiana thought the very same thing until the day they tuned in to the will of God instead of their own.
This melodic rock n' roll infused metal band takes you away from the gloom persona of hard rock and brings a fun energetic flare of life in contrast to anything in the music scene thus far. Music has been a passion shared between them for quite some time, but with no real purpose, no real inspiration to draw from. It wasn't until they put down their plans and followed God’s that they realized that they could make an impact on people through their music. Since then, The Protest has gone through years of touring, recording, struggles, failures, and victories to find that they are even more passionate about reaching others with the love that Christ has shown them. Now, with the release of their second album “Great Lengths”, they are more focused than ever to reach audiences with the love and hope of Christ.
Over the years The Protest has been blessed to tour the country and share the stage with many bands such as Family Force 5, Tesla, Demon Hunter, Icon For Hire, Jack Russell's Great White, The Letter Black, Nine Lashes, Decyfer Down, Sent by Ravens, 12 Stones, Ashes Remain, Disciple, and Fireflight. They are also very humbled by the success of their debut album “Game Changer” that topped many charts worldwide. Though they are very grateful for the success, they are realizing each day that it’s not about them and it never has been. It’s about God and telling people about him. It’s about loving others and showing them Christ in your life. It’s about being a servant. It’s about God. The flesh is weak. The human nature of this ministry wants recognition and success, but what is success? Is it having money? Is it being known? As far as recognition goes it should be given to the one who makes all things possible. Jesus.
So if you are down and out, worried, hated, tainted by sin, or lost please come see The Protest play. They don’t have all the answers and they definitely aren't perfect but they WILL pray with you and offer all the love and encouragement that they can.
