Welcome to the Official Protester Website! close ×



PROTESTER was formed by vocalist TONY GRINDER with the intention of this heavy, Industrial/ electronic/ rock hybrid band partially for the purpose of raising 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.

Drummer JORDAN COHEN, formerly of Powerman 5000 and guitarist MATTHEW SETZER of London After Midnight forming the core lineup, with various famous musicians rotating in and out forming an “all-star collective” band of sorts for an incredible unit never done previously in this way.

Don’t be surprised if at a PROTESTER show, you see a walk-on guest appearance by a superstar musician, all of which have expressed 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.
