Protomartyr Announce New EP With The Breeders’ Kelley Deal

The Detroit native post-punk rockers, Protomartyr, announced that they will be releasing the new EP, titled Consolation E.P. on June 15th via Domino. The EP was partially recorded with the Breeders’ Kelley Deal who is a friend of the band. The EP was also recorded by Deal’s R.Ring bandmate, Mike Montgomery.

Protomartyr’s Joe Casey said of recording the EP: “Making 2015’s split single “A Half Of Seven” with R. Ring was one of our favorite recording experiences, so the decision to head down to Dayton, Kentucky and spend a weekend in May recording the four songs that became the “Consolation E.P.” was an easy one.”

Deal added about the collaboration that, “for Mike and I, working on this EP with Protomartyr was a re-kindling of the tender spark that was struck upon our first encounter with them years ago in Texas. They were graciously tolerant and receptive to my production ideas on the songs and the project quickly grew beyond our private orb.”


Yoonha Park, who has directed a music video before for Protomartyr, directed the music video “Wheel of Fortune,” a track which features both Casey’s and Deal’s vocals.
