Protovulcan is the new project from Drummer Deric Criss (Aleks and the Drummer, Walking Bicycles, Charlie Deets) and Keyboard player Will MacLean (Variety Lights, Ice Cream Mission to Mars, Blue Moth). Together they create a manic blend of electronic and organic that pounds and howls and screeches in to place. The duo is preparing to release their debut album Stakes is Low via Toy Moon Music.

You can help Protovulcan celebrate the release on October 22nd at Burlington Bar with Werewheels and Velcro Lewis Group.
