American Meltdown Tour kicks of TONIGHT!

Posted by jamie on 2014-06-21 18:04
Patent Pending's eagerly awaited American Meltdown Tour kicks off tonight in Camelbeach Waterpark, PA, the guys are headlining Shermapalooza, which features 20 bands accross 3 stages, and your ticket to the show also includes entry into the Waterpark, so you may get lucky and come across one of the guys relaxing in the pool before the show!

The guys are playing as a 4 piece band tonight, since Marc Kantor is on tour in Europe with Zebrahead and Joe's brother, Rob Ragosta, who regularly fills in with the band and plays extra guitar is playing a show with his own band, This Good Robot.

After the show tonight the next show of the tour is a couple of weeks away, on 10th July in Toledo, Ohio.

As always, full details of the tour are available in our Tour Library, where you'll find links to ticket outlets, and a place to discuss the shows with other fans.

If anyone is going to the show tonight, or any of other shows on the tour, please don't hesitate to send us photos, setlist, or anything at all!

New Lyric Video For The Whiskey, The Liar, The Thief

Posted by Ally on 2014-06-19 20:18
The Whisky The Liar The ThiefAn hour or so ago the guys from Patent Pending realised a new lyric video via Twitter and Facebook for popular song from Brighter, The Whiskey, The Liar, The Thief.

The song has been a firm fan favourite, and from what we gather one of Joe's favourite songs, to be played live. The UK Spring Break tour in April saw it played at every show and definitely got the crowd going!

This new lyric video has been made by the same person who made the Hey Mario video, Taylor Enzminger, we wonder if this will hit one million YouTube views like Mario did, time will tell on that one.

The video has been added to our video library, so why not take yourself over there and go and watch it!

2014 American Meltdown Tour

Posted by Ally on 2014-06-18 17:47

A couple of weeks ago we broke a couple of news stories (here, and here) relating to a few random Patent Pending shows accross America appearing on Ticketing websites, well now Patent Pending have released full details of this American Tour.

The tour, called the American Meltdown Tour will take place through July and August, starting this weekend, Saturday 21st July in Camelbeach Waterpark, and ending on 7th August when the guys join MKTO on their American Dreams tour in New York's Irving Plaza, which could potentially be Patent Pending's biggest show to date!

The 10 dates of the tour are as follows:

Saturday 21st June - Shemapalooza at Camelbeach Waterpark, Tannersville, PA - Ticketmaster, Camelbeach Waterpark
Thursday 10th July - Frankies Inner City, Toledo, OH - TicketFly
Friday 11th July - Penny Road Pub, Barrington IL - (Tickets not available yet)
Saturday 12th July - The Firebird, St Louis, MO - TicketFly
Sunday 13th July - The Agora Ballroom, Cleveland, OH - Ticketweb, Ticketmaster

Thursday 7th August- American Dreams Tour at Irving Plaza, New York, NY - Ticketmaster

Since the shows have only just been announced some shows don't have any tickets available, but when they do we will post about them on

There are several large gaps between some of the shows, but as of yet there is no further shows anounced, and the tour poster only features these 10 dates, but, Ticketmaster still lists a show with a date 'To be confirmed' in Crocodile Rock, Allentown, PA, so we could yet see more dates added to the tour.

More details are available in our Tour Library, where you'll find links to Ticket Agencies and links to our forums where you can discuss the shows with fellow fans, and you can check out the full tour poster in our Gallery.

Posted by Ally on 2014-06-11 16:55
Taking Back QueensA bit late, but we somehow only just found about this! This saturday, 14th June, Patent Pending will be playing Taking Back Queens at Hollis Wood Community Church in Queens. The show was apparently announces a month and half ago by the organises, tickets were Free and only obtainable by RSVP'ing to the event, but these have since sold out.

The guys have announced via facebook that they will be giving away some tickets tomorrow and friday, so keep checking both facebook and twitter for details of this.

Taking Back Queens also announced that if you are not on an RSVP list for any of the bands playing then you won't be let in, only 150 people will be at the show, if you are not one of the RSVP'd 150 you have no chance of getting in unless you win tickets tomorrow or friday!

Tour System updated!

Posted by jamie on 2014-06-08 18:52
We have just put version 2 of our Tour System online!

The new Tour System is almost identical to the old one, but it has a few key changes, the first is with shows in the future, if you go to that shows page in the Tour System, at the bottom of the page there will be links to authorised ticket retailers, so you will easily be able to get a ticket to the show of your choice without having to search for it.

The second new feature is a bigger one, and that is Setlists! For those who don't know, a setlist is the list of songs that a band plays during a live performance, whereever possible we will list that shows setlist on that shows page page. Since Patent Pending are still a mostly unknown band, there are not many setlists available, but what we do find online we'll add to the database, but this is all manual, slow and tedius work, and will of course take time to get all of Patent Pending's past setlists online.

We hope the new features come in handy, we've been online now nearly six months, and we are very grateful for all the support and thanks we have recieved, in the next few days we will be releasing details of a little something to celebrate our six months online, so stay tuned and keep checking our Facebook and Twitter feeds, and if you don't already, make sure you 'Like' and 'Follow' us!

More Unannounced Shows In The US

Posted by Ally on 2014-06-03 20:54
Patent PendingAs you do on a Monday night, we here at have been partaking in our favourite past time of digging for news. As we posted yesterday, we found two shows in Toledo and St Louis that are taking place on 10th and 12th July respectively, we thank Spotify for pointing one of these out, and TicketFly for the other one.

Well it has just caught our attention that there are also three listed on Ticketmaster, these are for The Agora Ballroom, Ohio on 13th July, Radiant in Nutley, New Jersey on the 18th and Crocodile Rock, Allentown, Pennsylvania but the date on this one is set as "To Be Announced". Songkick is also listing a show in Hamden, Conneticut on 2nd August at The Space.

The show at Radiant is listed as "featuring Joy Ride/Automatic 253 and more TBA", presumably these are the support acts and it isn't a festival date as the doors open at 7pm, hopefully we'll have more information on that soon.

Tickets for all shows are available to buy, $10 for The Space, $10.40 for Agora Ballroom, $15 for Radiant and strangely Ticketmaster are selling tickets for Crocodile Rock at $16.50 with fees despite there being no set date for this show yet. Very suspicious.

We can only presume from all these dates popping up that there is going to be a US Summer tour, however we have heard nothing off the guys relating to these dates as of yet.

Here is a list of the complete set of dates we have so far along with a link you can buy tickets from, and we hope the guys officially announce something about this tour soon and we'll let you know if we see any more dates appear!

Thursday July 10th - Frankies, Toledo, OH TicketFly
Saturday July 12th - The Firebird, St Louis, MO TicketFly
Sunday July 13th - The Agora Ballroom, Cleveland, OH Ticketweb
Friday July 18th - Radiant, Nutley, NJ Ticketweb
Saturday August 2nd - The Space, Hamden, CT ETix
TBA - Crocodile Rock, Allentown, PA Ticketmaster

Show To Be Played At FireBird, St Louis In July

Posted by Ally on 2014-06-02 12:16
FirebirdWe've just heard that Patent Pending will be playing a show in St Louis on the 12th of July at Firebird. The band have yet to annouce the show themselves, however Spotify have pointed it out, and on closer investigation the event is listed on both Firebird's own website and ticket vendor website, TicketFly.

Firebird is a popular rock music venue in St Louis which holds host to many rock acts that are both up and coming as well as semi well known acts such as Foxy Shazam, Electric Six and Trapt.

The website has a nice little write up about the band mentioning details such as the "Second Family community", Vans Warped Tour and the One Less Heart To Break video, which at the moment is also featured on the right side of their website under artist videos as a YouTube link.

As mentioned above the show will take place on the 12th July, more information can be found on Firebird's website and tickets can already be purchased for $10 from TicketFly.

UPDATE: After a bit more investigation we have also found the band are playing Frankies in Ohio on the 10th July, the event isnt't yet listed on Frankie's show schedule, however, like with Firebird, the tickets ARE on sale through TicketFly.

This is beginning to look like some kind of US summer tour, hopefully we will get more details soon with these two shows appearing despite an official announcement from the band.

Pennsylvania Show Anouncement!

Posted by jamie on 2014-05-31 11:56
Yesterday Patent Pending anounced that they would be playing a show in Pennsylvania this June!

The Show, at Camelbeach Waterpark for Shermapalooza will take place on
Saturday 21st June, thats three weeks today! Not much details on the show have been released yet, just the date and venue, the poster states Patent Pending with Special Guests.

Joe, and the rest of the band have also been hinting at upcoming tour anouncements, we assume that one of these is the UK tour, which Joe said in the recent live Facebook Web Chat should be getting announced sometime within the next month, plus maybe an American tour.

Joe and Dana's baby daughter is due late August, so this will obviously affect the bands schedule and amount of time they can spend touring and away from home.
