NEW YORK, NY – Known for being lively and innovative, Long Island’s rambunctious quintet Patent Pending have something new to share with their loyal Second Family. The band will be releasing a new cover album with revamped versions of songs ready for fans to dance to. Full of classic jams and recent chart-toppers, the album flawlessly showcases the group’s penchant for all things punk and a genuine love of creativity. The album, aptly titled ‘Other People’s Greatest Hits,’ comes out on May 26th via Rude Records, and the first song “Spice Up Your Life” is available now! Stream it here and get ready for the next single as the band won’t be wasting any time with releasing it.

When asked about the lead single, frontman Joe Ragosta shared, “As soon as we decided to do this project, we knew we wanted to do a Spice Girls song. We actually had a copy of the movie in our old tour bus that we used to watch on repeat at one point. Other than our love for the Spice Girls, we also wanted to do one of their songs because they truly represent girl power. In times like these where women are being treated terribly and there is turmoil both with our new government here in the USA and many other places around the world, I think we could all use a little more girl power. While listening to the Spice Girls catalog to decide on a song to do we noticed that “Spice Up Your Life” is a really heavy song musically! Kind of reminded us of a My Chemical Romance vibe. It turns out that if you switch the synths for guitars and make the song a little angrier you get the gnarliest and probably heaviest Patent Pending recording of all time. This song was one of my favorite recording sessions of my entire life.”

About The Artist:

Patent Pending is an acrobatic gang of musical misfits from Long Island, New York. With a never-say-die attitude and enough live energy to power Times Square, the group is set on giving listeners a reason to forget about the chaos of everyday life. With shows growing in size from basements to amphitheaters, and from VFW Halls to sold out headlining shows in the United Kingdom, they’ve never let go of the genuine DIY code of ethics the band was founded on over a decade ago. The live show, which has been described as “psychotically fun and dramatically moving,” is an inspiring testament to the passion the band pours into every aspect of their lives. With the support of their incredibly loyal fanbase, better known as The Second Family, Patent Pending has released an impressive number of albums and EPs, including the most recent Riot Hearts Rebellion in 2015. Pulling from all corners of the musical spectrum, the band is set on spicing things up with a cover album to be released on May 26, 2017 through Rude Records. Aptly titled ‘Other People’s Greatest Hits’, the release is a fearless and genre-bending take on arena ready anthems like “Spice Up Your Life” and “Livin’ La Vida Loca.”

Hard work and dedication have yielded some incredible results for Patent Pending. They’ve enjoyed the success of three music videos reaching the coveted #1 spot on, with state side rotation on MTV, MTV2, MTVu, Fuse on Demand and Scuzz TV in the United Kingdom. In 2012, The Pending’s warrior-like determination won them the Billboard Music Awards “Dream Seeker Of The Year” trophy and afforded them the honor of delivering a ground-shaking performance of their song “Dance Til We Die” in front of a national television audience of over 8 million home viewers. Later that year, opportunity came knocking again in a big way when pop-rock legends Bowling For Soup gave the band an opening spot on their massive UK Tour. That first trip to Europe proved to be a life changer for the New York natives. The band has since returned for multiple headlining tours and performances at the historic Download Festival with the likes of Slipknot and Iron Maiden.

Equipped with an ever-expanding tour schedule including their current headliner in the United Kingdom and a tour supporting Simple Plan set for the fall, this looks to be another landmark year for these Long Island misfits. Patent Pending shows no signs of slowing down and even less of forgetting where they came from. Frontman Joe Ragosta can best explain – “The music makes us a band, the connection with the people who listen to that music makes us a family, and family is stronger than anything.”
