Protomartyr announce US tour, a gift to the nation's grumps

Who has enough piss, enough vinegar to be America’s grumpiest band? It’s a pity, but I don’t have the answer. Here’s a contender, though: Detroit’s Protomartyr. With all the mope of the post-punk revival replaced with a mountain of dissatisfied grumbling, the band grumps with the best of them.

Now they’ve got a score to settle with this country called the United States, so they’re taking their grievances to the road. On the way, they’ll join forces with the likes of The Gotobeds, Perfect Pussy, and Priests, all tremendous grumps in their own ways.

Through clenched teeth and spit, the group has released a video for “Want Remover” from last year’s Under Color of Official Right. Incidentally, the video features an awful lot of serene dancing. It is, somehow, some way, one of the least grumpy videos in recent memory.
