Patrons are a band, born out of long-standing friendships and a love for the unconventional, from Plymouth, U.K. The band draw inspiration from personal events, feeding on whatever life throws at them. Musically the band’s 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, for the release of their debut album ‘As Above, So Below’ on March 31st, featuring 10 tracks of wise and thoughtful post-hardcore. The above videos are the first two singles from Patrons upcoming album.
The Patrons’ guitarist, Mark Hoynes, shared his thoughts with us about the new album: “We’re really proud of the songs on our forthcoming record, ‘As Above, So Below’, and are really excited to share them with the world. Hopefully, you can enjoy the songs as much as we have enjoyed creating them; we’ve learned so much through bringing this to life. Play it loud!”
It’s not so often we share something hardcore, and I think Patrons is exactly that. They are also 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, after a year of touring, they have released the second one in 2015, “The Momentary Effects of Sunlight”, which has received critical acclaim worldwide. Can’t wait to see what their third release will bring.
