PROTESTER was formed by vocalist TONY GRINDER with the intention of this Industrial/ electronic/ rock hybrid all-star collective band for the purpose of helping raise awareness and public consciousness of the state of worlds’ current social, economic, and deteriorating decline, with a mission of optimistic change…right down to the obvious band name, purposely chosen to encourage fans to research and become educated to the growing movement!
Grinder began exploring several like-minded musicians with a desire to make a difference with their musical prowess.
Guitarists from Manson, NIN, Zombie, Static X, Ministry & London After Midnight along with Drummers from Powerman 5000 & Blue Man Group are just some of the famous musicians rotating in and out forming this “revolving-door supergroup” for an incredible unit never done previously in this way.
Don’t be surprised if at a Tony Grinder & PROTESTER show, you see walk-on guest appearances by superstar musicians, all of which have a coomon interest to join us on our mission- THE PROTEST IS NOW…AND PROTESTER IS US!
The protest is against a world run by banking and corporate interests, taking over everything with the value system of greed, division and disregard. We are inching more-so each year to the “market” mindset which puts everything for sale and holds nothing sacred, brings this kind of world monopoly into play faster than ever.
