Debut LP on the way from Protafield

PUNK industrialists Protafield will release their debut album Nemesis on June 9th before their festival appearances - including Sonisphere - and a European tour.

The British band is the brainchild of frontman Jayce Lewis, who holds an address book any newcomer would kill for - enabling them to benefit from directional support from their close friends in Fear Factory, as well as the actor David Prowse (aka –Darth Vader), as well as some very special guest appearances.

Jayce said: "The involvement of Burton (Fear Factory) helped me come up with a new name/re-branding of Protafield. He was key to giving the band an identity as well as advising on how to develop my 'guttural roars' which is something I didn't do before. Burton is a big fan of the music as I am of his, so it was a real sweet addition to it all. 

"As for Dave Prowse, he has been a continuous integral part to my whole career, driving things forward, getting film producers to come to the shows and also finding angles to introduce me to people in the film business interested in music.”

The album also features guest appearances from Gary Numan and Queen's Roger Taylor.

Jayce added: "Gary Numan is on the track  'Redesign'. We had both been speaking for a little while about us collaborating on something and when I wrote the track, I could instantly hear his voice on it. So I asked him and he was well up for it. The same happened with Roger Taylor, except not so directly, as his right-hand man Josh MaCrae suggested I send him some songs. He instantly picked up on the track 'Wrath' and so with a little bit of re arranging of the song, Roger played on it. It reminds me a little of  ‘We Will Rock You’.
