The wonderful Patent Pending have a new music video online and we love it.
The video for Let Go features some of that trademark Patent Pending showmanship, and the tune is brilliant.
Let Go is taken from their new album, Brighter.
We caught up with front-man Joe Ragosta backstage at Bowling For Soup’s Leeds show, and he spoke about the bands awesome dance moves, and how that attitude is reflected in their new album.
“We’re a band who kind of do whatever we want,” Joe explained. “We’re not exactly a punk band in that we’re like [shouting] ‘oi oi oi, the government, oi oi oi’ but we are a punk band in that we just don’t fucking care what people think.
“We want to do what we want to do, and I thought it would be hilarious to put a boyband breakdown in the middle of a song, which we did in the song Anti-Everything, and we thought it would be even funnier if we danced like a boyband when that happened. That attitude kind of carried over to the new album, Brighter, which came out last week [leaning in to the dictaphone] available in stores now.
“We don’t follow the rules of the punk scene or the pop scene or the rock scene – that’s kind of how that song came about.”
