The band Protosequence performs in Abbotsford on Saturday, June 10 as part of their Greasy BC tour in support of their latest release, Schizophrene.

The band performs with the group Plaguebringer at Brother’s Bowling and Billiards (33550 South Fraser Way) at 8 p.m.

Protosequence is a reference to the original genome where all life began – much like the band, which existed in principle before they even had a presence.

Kyle Hunter (guitar) was constantly crafting near-complete songs that were ready to be realized. It did not take long for Hunter and Logan Vars (drums) to meet.

In addition to Hunter and Vars, the band consists of Jacob Teeple (bass), Joseph McKee (vocals) and Parker (guitar and vocals).

Members have a long history in the Edmonton music scene, playing in bands like Anubian and In The Midst of a Murder since the early 2000s.

The band draws influence from acts like All Shall Perish, August Burns Red, and The Black Dahlia Murder.

With a foothold on their influences, they root their music in technicality while layering emotional, yet gruff, vocals weaved into every track.

Each live performance is crafted like an album played from front to back, with each song bearing a story.

At the Abbotsford show, the band will reveal live to fans new material they have been working on for their follow-up release later this year.
