Patent Pending Halfway To Funding New Record

Patent Pending

Long Island based band Patent Pending have been busy guys lately. When not taking time to tour internationally with Bowling For Soup or performing at the Billboard Music Awards, they’ve been working on a PledgeMusic campaign to fund their new album, which they assure us will be awesome.

Donations will be accepted in increments as small as $10 (which gives you an album download), all the way up to $5,000 (which gives you free admission to Patent Pending shows for life). The guys are at 57% of their entire goal and with 39 days left — odds are fans can rally to make this happen.

To be honest, nine out of ten times when I see a band doing this, I question whether or not it’s really necessary. For example, Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys asking the public to fund (what will assuredly be) a cheesy horror film. It’s a little ridiculous.

But Patent Pending are different. Those guys would give you the shirts off their backs. They are the kind of guys who would go out of their way to help complete strangers. If you reached out for some help or advice or had a frown on your face at a show, they’d be there to extend a hand. A portion of the donations received will be going towards the band’s favorite charity, To Write Love On Her Arms.

So help Patent Pending fight the corporate world and independently put out some killer music! Also check out the band’s most recent release, entitled Second Family.
