PROTOMARTYR make poetic post-punk that is every bit as personal as it is powerful. 2015’s The Agent Intellect is the band’s third album in three years. It also happens to be their best. Frontman Joe Casey is a classic everyman, fed up with his surroundings and tired of the status quo. He spits his lyrics like venom as the band rips through their unique blend of angular, dissonant post-punk.
