Patent Pending release new single ahead of UK tour and appearances at Reading & Leeds Festival
New York’s Patent Pending are making August a pop punk paradise for fans in the UK, with a new single, alongside a tour which includes appearances at Reading and Leeds Festival.
The new single “Punk Rock Songs” graces centre stage, the first original music since the bands’ 2015 release Riot Hearts Rebellion. The track is very much a milestone in the decade long career, being a retrospective look back at the journey that has entertained the masses. The lyrics speak of a specific incident in London, with one particular fan, telling the story of what all Patent Pending fans know, that it’s not just a show, or a song, it’s a family.
Singer Joe explains the background to Punk Rock Songs:
“To me, Punk Rock Songs is the perfect glimpse into the lives of Patent Pending. It’s written to illustrate the love we have for this band, the music we make and the people that we are so privileged to share it with. Every line in the song showcasing the seemingly hopeless path of struggle that we’ve encountered on our way to becoming the band we are is contrasted with a line about the simple joys that keep us going through our most difficult times. This song is a true testament to the heart and soul of this band.“.

“We are so amped up to get back on tour in the UK! It’s only been 8 months, but for us, that’s about 8 months too long! We’re excited to bring an all new stage show jam packed with songs from all over our catalog with a couple new heavy hitters sprinkled in.

Excited to be playing at Reading & Leeds, Joe shares:
“My brothers and I have been watching videos from this Reading and Leeds Fest since we were little kids! I distinctly remember getting my first glimpse of a mosh pit during a broadcast of Rage Against The Machine playing this festival from way back! Needless to say, we’re stoked to bring our NY style chaos to the Reading and Leeds Stage!“.
About Patent Pending
Patent Pending is what happens when distorted guitar music is mixed with pop-rocks candy and Coca-Cola: An explosion of uncontrollable chaotic excitement! A five piece group from Long Island, New York the band was built on a foundation of acrobatic live shows, arena-ready sing-along anthems, and DIY ethics and have become a true staple of the live pop-rock music scene.
These musical misfits cut their teeth on years of DIY van tours and worked their way up to international headlining tours, appearances the biggest festivals in the world including United Kingdom’s Download Festival, Australia’s Soundwave Festival, summers on The Van’s Warped Tour and even a live television performance on The Billboard Music Awards where the band was presented with the trophy for “Dream Seeker Of The Year” before sharing the stage with Linkin Park, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber in front of a global audience of over 7 million people.
With songs running the topical gamut from tongue-in-cheek tunes about Nintendo to emotional poignant ballads about suicide awareness, the band truly live their lives through the music they create and are 100% authentic in every aspect of their artistic expression. Returning in 2019 with new music, international headlining tours and an appearance at the world famous Reading and Leeds Festival Patent Pending is ready to continue on their path towards making true believers out of all of us.
