I-75 indie heroes Protomartyr (of Detroit) and Kelley Deal (of Dayton) worked closely together on 2018’s “Consolation E.P.” Now they’re taking the relationship to the next level: The Breeders legend will be a member of the Protomartyr live band for a series of upcoming Midwest tour dates.
As Brooklyn Vegan points out, Deal will be a touring member of Protomartyr for a trio of March shows in Chicago, Kalamazoo, and Columbus. There’s no word yet as to whether she’ll continue to be in the band after that, but Deal did like a tweet from username @consolationep requesting that she “please just straight up join the band,” so there’s that. I’m sure we’ll find out when they release the follow-up to 2017’s Relatives In Descent, which I’d guess will emerge this year.
