Update: Voting is now live.
Patent Pending are in the finals of Billboard's Battle of the Bands. You'll be able to stream the show and vote live tonight starting at 11pm EST/8pm PST here. If they win, the band will perform live at the Billboard Music Awards - so be sure to vote.
Bowling For Soup, Patent Pending and The Dollyrots will release a split CD in which they each cover one of the other bands' songs as well as contribute a new, original track. The three groups will also be touring the UK together in October, so expect the split to be out around then.
This Good Robot started as a solo project by former Patent Pending frontman Michael Ragosta. It wasn't long before it became a full band and has since blossomed into an eight-person group. They combine a variety of genres, from indie rock to pop punk to post-hardcore and everything in between. Check the band out on facebook, and you can stream their EP, The Human I Am, which was produced by Tim Payne of Thursday, here. Let us know what you think in the replies.
The summer is here, and that means it's time to blast some pop-punk with the windows down. A strong contender for your soundtrack of the season is Patent Pending's Second Family, which is out today. You can stream the album on the band's AP.net profile. If you like what you hear, you can pick up a CD here, or grab a copy when you catch the band's fun live show on the Warped Tour.
Patent Pending have re-launched their web site with a new merch store. They will have videos forthcoming for "One Less Heart to Break" and "Dance 'Til We Die" from their new record, and the band makes an appearance on the new season of MTV's Silent Library.
Patent Pending's new album, Attack of the Awesome will be released on July 25, 2009. The cover art can be seen in the replies. They will also be shooting a live DVD at the album release show, details of which can be seen in the replies.
