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.
The band’s second EP, "The Momentary Effects of Sunlight", was released early 2015, worldwide, to critical acclaim. To accompany the new release, the band toured extensively throughout the rest of 2015 and were invited to play NASS Festival in the summer.
In their time as a band, Patrons have already been fortunate enough to share the stage with bands including Every Time I Die, SHVPES, Press To Meco, We Are The Ocean, Black Foxxes and Rolo Tomassi. As well as receiving airplay on BBC Radio stations, they have performed multiple live BBC Introducing Sessions. They have also been featured on Kerrang Radio as Alex Baker’s “Artist Of The Week”, as well as hugely positive coverage from the likes of Rock Sound in the UK and Visions Magazine in mainland Europe.
