Who?

Cacophonous South Florida punk rockers making good on marketing help from members of Less Than Jake and New Found Glory. Less Than Jake drummer Vinnie Fiorello calls Protagonist's work ethic "untiring" and "inspiring to (LTJ) and other bands" - high praise from a respected veteran of the punk scene.

How Is It?

Protagonist is musically what you'd expect from just about every other gritty punk rock band out there. But that's not to say they're on equal footing with everyone else.

I gave it a few listens, and it's pretty overrated and unoriginal.
