twenty four - Self Released (Nov. 2004)

The right brain is a powerful thing.

The Protocol began playing shows in the Seattle area in June 2003. With the core of its band professionals in the left brain corporate world desperate for an angst release, The Protocol unleashed live sets with tremendous energy that wowed local crowds. Within six months The Protocol created such a buzz that it headlined Seattle's premier and most historic venue - The Crocodile Cafe. The Protocol recently inked a production deal and recorded its debut record twenty four with producer/engineer Floyd Reitsma (Audioslave, Dave Matthews Band, Brad) at Studio Litho (Deftones, Staind). twenty four was self-released on November 20, 2004.

twenty four displays the versatility of The Protocol. With songs like "Not Real," "Favorite Girl" and "Leavin'," The Protocol perfects its indie/pop punk sound. Songs like "White Pants" and "Twenty Four" reveal the depth of the band through a more traditional rock arrangement with big, catchy hooks. That combination has already garnered strong praise. For example, Asylum Magazine added The Protocol to its "Bands to Watch" in 2005 and praised the record as sure to be one of the top indie releases of the year:

"The Protocol has made a debut album that'll satisfy your taste for them while at the same time leaving you with wanting more. With progressive guitar riffs and bass lines, the rhythm of the music alone is that of indie rock perfection, fitting every mood of the lyrical tone and the lead's luring voice. Getting ready to release their debut album in November of 2004, this will be one of the few albums to top your list of this year." - Asylum Magazine

twenty four also caught the attention of Loudeye executives and The Protocol signed a distribution deal with Loudeye Corporation to distribute its music on satellite radio stations and sell downloads over the Internet. Led by charismatic frontman Rob Leinbach, The Protocol also includes former Atlantic Records recording artist Paul Uhlir (Sweetwater) on drums, Jeff Reitan (Wish) on lead guitar and spAce (Cry) on bass. The Protocol expects big things in 2005 and appreciates your support.
