Plymouth-based quartet, Patrons, have shared the fantastic new video for ‘Listen’. The track is taken from the critically acclaimed new album, As Above, So Below, which is out now through Rose Coloured Records.
Having receiving big radio support from Alex Baker at Kerrang! Radio and BBC Introducing Devon, Listen received it’s first airplay on BBC Radio 1 with Huw Stephens a couple of weeks back.
Speaking on the video, bassist Olly Reed said, ‘We wanted to show a side of the band that we’ve not shown before.
‘It’s a completely different video than the first two from the album. We wanted to give the song room to breathe with interesting and beautiful visuals to help.
‘The LifeisArt Visuals guys have done a great job again.’
Patrons are a band born out of long-standing friendships and a love for the unconventional. They draw inspiration from personal events, feeding on whatever life throws at them. Musically, the bands influences are ever growing; yet there is a deep-rooted love of the epic scale of song-craft by bands like Biffy Clyro, Brand New, Thrice and Reuben.
2017 sees the quartet sign to Guildford-based label, Rose Coloured Records and the release of their debut album. ‘As Above, So Below’ was recorded and mixed by James Bragg at Middle Farm Studios and Mastered by Robin Schmidt.
On stage is where Patrons are most comfortable. There is no template. Shaking off common perceptions of what a live show has become, there are no demands or agendas. Instead, you will witness an intense, dynamic and visceral show from four guys who whole-heartedly believe in what they’re doing.
Whether they are playing as many shows as is physically possible; or tirelessly writing and recording new music; Patrons are one of the hardest working bands you will come across. Having released their debut self-titled EP via “I Hate It Records” at the end of March 2014, the band followed up with tour dates throughout the year and were invited to play at some of the UK’s best festivals, including; The Alternate Escape (Part of The Great Escape) Boardmasters, Leopalooza.
