Patent Pending
From the basements of Long Island to amphitheaters across the nation, Patent Pending has been attacking the world with their anthemic brand of pop-tinged punk rock.
From the acoustic soliloquy "Spin Me Around," to the acclamation that is the title track, the band's fourth album, 2011's "Second Family," delivers an unforgettable set of sing-alongs.

Patent Pending has also been enjoying the success of music videos for "One Less Heart To Break" and "Dance TIl We Die," gaining rotation on MTV2 and being featured on MTV's The Real World. After years on the road, the Long Island, NY five-piece continues to deliver an over the top and unforgettable live show. Having opened for Gym Class Heroes, Cobra Starship, and Bowling For Soup nationally, as well being veterans of the Vans Warped Tour and performing live on ABC's 2012 Billboard Music Awards, Patent Pending is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

In a recent interview Joe was quoted saying "This band isn't just something that we do, it's the only thing that we do." This attitude matched with the undying support of the "Second Family community" the band has built from the ground up is the force that drives this band to places they never dreamed they could get to. "Welcome to our Second Family."
Approaching Troy
Approaching Troy is an alternative/pop/punk rock band from Long Island NY, with big plans and dreams of making their mark on the historic Indie Rock scene of their native Long Island, NY. Undoubtedly Approaching Troy has an uphill challenge to achieve that goal. The music of Long Island has always had an amazing musical history with many famous indie bands leaving their mark in the hearts and souls of American rock fans. The faint echoes of that revolution (predecessors Taking Back Sunday, Glassjaw, Dream Theater, Bayside and Brand New) can barely be heard these days around the suburban towns they were born in. However, if the reaction from their loyal fans at live shows and the excitement over their soon-to-be released EP, "Dear Sadie" (a testament to the band's potential as an Alternative/Pop/Punk/Post-Hardcore Rock leader) is any indication of a revitalization of that scene, then Approaching Troy is about to be on the cusp of a new revolution; ready to make their individual mark on the Island's rich musical history.

The band started as a solo project for lead singer/songwriter, Jake Salazar. After months of writing, Jake decided to form a band with friends he knew who could carry the sound and vision he imagined for the band. After trial and error and a few lineup changes, Approaching Troy was born. For weeks after their first performance the band was the talk of the town bringing in fans from all over Long Island. Since then, the band has played numerous shows to adoring fans in the NYC/LI area and featured in numerous websites. The band has opened up for and supported legends of their genre like "Hawthorne Heights", "Red Jumpsuit Apparatus", "Ventetia Fair" and "The Ataris" just to name a few. Back in 2012, the band released an unofficial single "Star Crossed Lovers" off their album Somnium, which caught the ears of industry and adoring fans alike for it's driving rock rhythms, pop/punk sensibilities and memorable hooks. A 2015 mid-winter northeast mini tour, their first, was planned and executed with tremendous success and another more extensive tour is coming this summer. Their new EP, Dear Sadie was released in late Spring of 2015 with even more buzz surrounding it including a great review in PunkNews.org.

Approaching Troy's mission is simple: Take the band to new heights and new territories, one exciting live show at a time; while helping bring back the sounds of Long Island's historic live rock scene and it's ever-growing rock music community to life once again.
