Patent Pending started in the basements of Long Island, New York 12 years ago and we’ve been attacking the planet with our in-your-face brand of pop-tinged punk rock ever since.
Over a decade of hard work on the road coupled with the support of the “Second Family” community that we have built around ourselves has trained us to take on any challenge set ahead of this family. This yellow-brick road has lead us to our greatest adventure yet: FINISHING OUR MOST AMBITIOUS/AWESOME ALBUM TO DATE!
The goal for this recording is to truly capture the fun & chaotic excitement of a live Patent Pending show on tape because that is who we are & that is where we have always been at our best. We are elated to have this opportunity to, as always, share every piece of this band with every single member of this rag-tag family that we’ve all had a hand in creating over the past decade.
The songs and back breaking work we’ve been putting into this album since January of this year have taken shape to something that will truly help non-believers understand who we are as a band and as a family.
By pledging you’ll automatically pre-order a Digital Copy of the album to be delivered the moment it is complete. You will also gain access to exclusive video/photo/text updates throughout the entire process all the way up until the release date! Look for the bar on the right that will explain different packages, one of a kind items and exclusive interactive activities for you to choose from. One of the best parts of Pledge Music is you are not limited to just one thing and you have the ability to change/add on to your selections throughout the entire process like a virtual grocery cart!!!!
We are also very happy to announce that by pledging to this campaign you will be supporting a non-profit organization that we hold very close to our hearts called To Write Love On Her Arms. 5% of all pledges will go to support TWLOHA as they present hope and find help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and invest directly into treatment and recovery. If you know anything about us, you know that this is a system of beliefs we whole-heartedly agree with. We are very excited to have them on board for this project.
The purpose of this campaign is to rally around this new album and give it the push we believe it truly deserves, knowing that together, we can achieve amazing things. I’m sure i speak for all of us when i say it would be better to hear Patent Pending on the radio than to have to sit through another song by that no-talent ass-hat Chris Brown. LET’S DO THIS!!!
Love always,- Patent Pending!
P.S. – ISN’T THE INTERNET THE COOLEST?!?!?!?!
