Protomartyr is the story of the Butt Babies and how a duo became a group. The duo was guitarist Greg Ahee and drummer Alex Leonard. They were soon joined by vocalist Joe Casey.
Kevin Boyer rounded out the initial line-up playing bass and second guitar. However, scheduling conflicts resulted in Boyer's departure and the addition of Scott Davidson.
At this point the Butt Babies became Protomartyr. The name referenced the "first Christian martyr in a country or among a particular group, such as a religious order."
The band's debut "No Passion All Technique" dropped in '12 with their sophomore set, "Under Color Of Official Right" landed two years later.
