Tapestry by lycanthropeful Tapestry by lycanthropeful
The Protest the Hero Project 1 of 30

Today I devised a plan to create a new typography project. It might even turn into my thesis project. One of my quickest-rising favorite bands is Protest the Hero. Their lyrics are incredibly powerful, and that's rare for me to even acknowledge considering I usually pay very little attention to a song's words.

This band means quite a lot to me. Of their three major albums (Kezia, Fortress, and Scurrilous), each with ten songs, I have favorite bits of each. I'm planning to typographically interpret a line, phrase, or stanza from each of the 30 songs and turn it into a poster.

Tapestry is song #5 from their 2011 release, Scurrilous. Some lyrics:

Drunk as hell
Dumb as all get out
So pucker up those pretty lips of yours and
Kiss my ass and shut your mouth

Sometimes a knife right through your heart is exactly what you need
Sometimes the things that you're ashamed of make you who you're supposed to be


Typefaces: Tenby Five, Perforama Italic

Sort of. Got into a fight with a close friend and looking for a job, so it has been weird.

Interesting song, and if you do such a project I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Myself, 10 Years 'Shoot It Out' ([link]) from their Feeding The Wolves album is one of my new favorites. The Hard Rock/ Metal theme is just awesome. Some lyrics in return...

Shoot it, shoot it out 'cause they want a little more
You can be rest assured
You give them all you got and you give them a little more
And never even know what for

They feed and they suck until you're unconscious
It's never enough, they kill your subconscious

Thanks! :) I'm unsure of what our timeline is for our thesis projects (aka the BFA graphic design exhibition myself and the other seniors will have to put on to graduate), or if there are limitations/restrictions, but I can't help but think 30 11"x 17 posters of song lyrics and typography would look awesome covering a huge portion of the gallery wall.

And yay, I like 10 Years! Personally I liked The Autumn Effect better than Feeding the Wolves, but both are still good. Do you listen to 32 Leaves at all, or A Perfect Circle?

Heck, I'm just gonna throw my up here so you can get a sense of what music I like. I have the feeling we might have similar tastes.

I've never heard of those bands, but I'll browse that you posted and see what they're like. I've already noticed one band I like in there though: Lacuna Coil.
