For our Japanese readers, Ontario metalcore masters Protest The Hero announced a few hours ago that they will be having a three-day tour of Japan next May via Realising Media. Joining as main support are the Japanese local act Cyclamen (who had a tour with Cynic and Plini not too long ago). Also joining the tour are Minnesota’s Reflections and Glasgow’s own Sithu Aye who recently released his Sempai EP.
