ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
EARLY PRAISE FOR PROTEST SONGS AND PARTY ANTHEMS

"It’s not you, it’s Lee. Motherfucking Chris Lee, that’s who. And one listen to Protector of the Broken Hearts will answer the eternal question of “What if Ozzy fronted T Rex?” Non stop, good time rock and roll at all times from this cat. Play it loud!" - Greg Dulli, Afghan Whigs, Twilight Singers

"This album is a well wore tight pair of jeans that you never wanna take off!" - Peaches

"Whoa! Finally a non-nonsense straight up Rock N’ Roll album from Chris Lee! Been waiting for this since we toured Europe together!” - Dregen, Backyard Babies, Hellacopters

“I’m a sucker for everything Protest Songs and Party Anthems brings the table: raw, sweet, loud, literate and even fun—the F word.” - Kristin Hersh, Throwing Muses

"The arrival of Chris Lee rock is always a festive occasion. Chris’ righteous riffs and sweet melodies speed my pulse, raise my fists to the sky and put a giant smile on my motherfucking face. More please!” - Danko Jones

"You need rock n roll! You need Yellow Soul! You need Protest Songs And Party Anthems! You get it all with Chris Lee! Chris Lee has always kicked ass with his music and lyrics, and even more so now with his new album. Containing hooks for days, st ries that invite you to the celebration and let you rock out with abandon and no hangover !! Get it!!!” - David Catching, Eagles of Death Metal, Queens Of The Stone Age, Mojave Lords

"This record kicks ass. It has a great energy and joie de vivre, and the protest stuff has a great candor and personal quality, but offset by the rockers in a great way." - John Stirrat, Wilco

"I love this record! Chris Kicks some serious Ass!! This is straight up Rock & Roll that has been missing for a long time. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!!" - John Tempesta, The Cult, Testament

"Chris Lee made fired-up, hook-and-riff-laden, hard-partying rock and roll with Supagroup, but times have changed, and a true artist's mind, like a disco ball, refracts the world he lives in. Chris Lee's new album, "Protest Songs and Party Anthems," flashes images from the culture wars of our times with heavy-rockers like "When the Fire Comes" and "Hail to the Strong Man." Then, just when you're ready to take to the streets in full riot gear, he turns around and delivers on the party-anthem promise of the album's title with irresistible rockers like "Glitterati," "Real Go Getter" and "Rockers on the Left." Who says we can't have our cake and eat it too? We'll be dancing to this in the streets, all the while taking potshots at the fascist oppressor. Big thumbs up.” - Nat Freedberg, The Upper Crust

"New Album from Chris Lee! Big rock sound!!” - J. Yeunger, White Zombie

Chris Lee to release the first solo album, Protest Songs And Party Anthems from his new band The Chris Lee Band.

“This is a very personal record for me. I wanted to say things that I couldn’t say or otherwise wouldn’t be appropriate for Supagroup.” The genre is still rock and roll, says Lee, but “The new record and sound channels less AC/DC and Van Halen, and more David Bowie, Neil Young and Tom Petty” as inspiration. “I also listened to a lot of the protest songwriting greats such as Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Credence Clearwater Revival, and James Brown as I was writing.”

Chris Lee is best known as the front man and rhythm guitarist for the rock and roll band Supagroup, one of the few flag bearers of hard rock and roll from 1997 to present. In Supagroup, he co-wrote and released seven albums with Prison Planet, Chicken Ranch, and Foodchain Records, and had three top forty hits on the Active Rock charts with “Jailbait”, “What’s Your Problem Now”, and “Let’s Go (Get Wasted)”.

Chris Lee has rocked asses all over the world with Supagroup’s blistering hard rock show, with over 1,200 live shows around the globe. He’s gigged and toured with a who’s who of rock and roll including the Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Pearl Jam, Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent, Wolfmother, Andrew W. K., Cheap Trick, Supersuckers, My Morning Jacket, Rev. Horton Heat, Nashville Pussy, Backyard Babies, and Whitesnake, to name a few. After extensive touring with Alice Cooper, The Coop said that “Supagroup is the only opening band I’ve had since Guns and Roses to get standing ovations every night.”

Chris is the son of a Chinese immigrant, Dominic Shi Fong Lee, who found success in Alaska as an engineer. He is also a first cousin of Bruce Lee. He sent Chris to the most remote parts of the “Bush” in Alaska to work while still a teenager, dodging bears and moose and angry Eskimos. Chris’ dad is still very disappointed in Chris for never making use of his Tulane degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology.

Dominic married Chris’ mother Freddie Sue Lee, even though it was against the law to marry inter-racially in the state of Missouri, where they met. Freddie left her northern Missouri farm to get four masters degrees, including one that made her a licensed Assemblies of God pastor, like her snake-handling father. She set young Chris’ comics books and heavy metal tapes on fire as the work of Satan, yet was surprised when Chris turned to show business later in life. She is very disappointed that Chris did not also become a Pentecostal preacher.

Chris Lee’s new band consists of veteran rock and rollers John Gray on drums and Johnny “Hotwheels” Brashear on lead guitar, who both played with Rock City Morgue and Star and Dagger, two bands that also included his wife Sean Yseult (White Zombie). Travis Stewart (Supagroup, Mada) on guitar and Steve Watson (Mojo Nixon, The Neptunes) on bass round out the live band. Guest performers on the record include Marcy Von Hesseling (Star and Dagger) and Jen Howard on backing vocals, as well as Durel Yates Jr. (Suplecs) and Benji Lee (Supagroup, Cretus) on lead guitars.
