The Black Proteus, Vienna’s fresh new rock band with international roots spanning from Austria, across Slovenia all the way to Turkey, is here to remind you that great rock requires just two essential ingredients: a good guitar riff and a catchy melody.
In the midst of a new life in Vienna, singer Matt started writing new songs to return to the stage – where he truly belongs. In 2018 his mixture of melodics influenced by 90’s grunge and low tuned guitar tones inspired experienced drummer Sašo Corso, groove loving Viennese bassist Roman Badstuber and trained guitarist Temmuz Işı Özerkan to join the ensemble.
The Black Proteus released their first single Brand New Start along with the accompanying music video in June 2018.
“We all have plans and dreams,” says Matt. “Yet somehow we tend to get sucked into the dull routine of everyday life. Brand New Start is about breaking that cycle and starting fresh. If it motivates a single person to move their bum and follow their dreams, that’d be more that I could ever hope for.”
The band is practicing their new material and cannot wait to introduce Brand New Start at upcoming live gigs. Join in as the band’s story evolves.
