Long Island pop-punk act Patent Pending has premiered a brand new music video. The video features the song “Brighter,” which will appear on their upcoming EP, Armageddon, which is set to drop on July 31, 2015 via their new home on Rude Records. Joe Pending comments:
“The ‘Brighter’ music video was made by us with help from our amazing team here on Long Island. Led by our long time director, John Komar, most of this video was shot at Patent Pending headquarters (Anthony’s House) while the rest was shot at incredible locations graciously offered up by friends of the band. The video is a metaphor for the crazy journey that our band has taken to this point and leaves us with a sense of hope at the end that with hard work and dedication, accomplishing the impossible may be possible one day. We’re so proud of this music video and we hope people are as excited as we are about it!”
The disc was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee with long time producer and collaborator, Jordan M. Schmidt. You can pre order the EP here. Watch the video below.

Chicago pop punks Knuckle Puck are streaming a new track. True Contrite will feature on their upcoming LP, Copacetic, due for release on July 31st via Rise Records. Guitarist Kevin Maida has spoken to Kerrang! about the new track:
“True Contrite, in my humble opinion, is easily one of my favorite songs we have written so far…I feel like it withholds a lot of familiar elements of our band, while still showcasing a different perspective from what we’ve done musically in the past. This was the first song we wrote and worked on together for Copacetic, so we are very pleased to finally show you what it sounds like.”

Philadelphia alt-punks Kiska (formerly known as Desoto Jones) have joined the Spartan Records family. The quartet’s first release for their new label will be their self titled debut full length, due to drop in the autumn. Brothers Owen and Adam Staszewski (who share vocal and guitar duties) have said this about the band’s name change:
“It evoked an image in our heads of an isolated place separated by water from an already cold and isolated place [Alaska],” (said Adam) “The mood and sound of the album is also a reflection of the name [Kiska] — heavy, majestic, desolate, and ominous,” (adds his brother Owen).
