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.
Special guest musician collective from famous acts such as Ministry, London After Midnight, Powerman 5000, Manson, Zombie, Static X & Blue Man Group are just some of the 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 common interest to join us on our mission- THE PROTEST IS NOW…AND PROTESTER IS US!
The protest is against the current militarized Police state, in 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 holds nothing sacred, stripping individuals of basic human rights, which is bringing this kind of world monopoly into play faster than ever.
