Less than a week before its official release through Battleground Records, Las Vegas-based dynamic rock quintet, ONE TON PROJECT, premieres “Protagonist,” — the fifth track on their debut LP, Gizzards & Hearts — through an exclusive premiere at PureGrainAudio. Leading in with a somewhat sorrowful guitar intro, the slow-paced number builds with layered vocals, steadily driving percussion, and blazing leads, yet still remains one of the more somber and subdued songs on the twelve-track album.

The Vegas roll groove crew, ONE TON PROJECT, takes this time to introduce the planet to their eclectic and energetic homemade brew of rock, which draws from an expansive wealth of influences, through the extravaganza of their Gizzards & Hearts debut LP. Enigmatic storytelling plays out through a churning, modern blend of rocked-out jams made for the stage. Inducing party time ambiance and the through their varied output, traditional rock structures and soulful vocal patterns meld into the pulsing rhythms of reggae, jazz breaks, the sharp timbre of Eastern scales, culminating into catchy hooks which clash with progressive post-rock soundscapes and bluesy phrases. Self-produced over the course of several years in the instrument crowded warren of the band’s own studio, Gizzards & Hearts delivers nearly fifty minutes of smooth but sweltering boogie breaks and soulful elements that’ll have you dressed to the nines and ready to hit the town.
ONE TON PROJECT’s a record release show for Gizzards & Hearts is booked to take place in downtown Vegas on June 19th alongside their cohorts in The Solid Suns and Dinner Music For The Gods. Stand by for additional upcoming performances to be announced in the coming weeks.
