Punk rockers Protagonist have always had a DIY approach building a following in a virtually non-existent scene in South Florida. Taking inspiration from Bouncing Souls, Bad Religion and H20, these guys have put their own spin on melodic punk. Today the band partnered up with Punktastic to unveil their Static Sessions, an acoustic/live version of the track “Hideaway” which can be viewed here.
“‘Hideaway’ encompasses the idea of what it feels like to have no home to return to. It is an idea we explored previously in ‘Tunbridge’ and ‘The Stranger The Boy Became,’ from ‘States.’ As I’ve grown older, and moved throughout the United States, things on the homefront have changed. The concept of what was once home becomes more distant with each return visit. In the end, what once was your haven seems like a foreclosed hideaway.” – Peter (Protagonist)
In addition, the band is gearing up for a slew of hometown shows with New Found Glory as the two South Florida masterminds travel up and down the Florida coast together this February. The tour kicks off February 25th in Pensacola where they will make their way to South Florida to perform at Culture Room, an iconic venue that has brought much success for both artists.
