Album Review: “Other People’s Greatest Hits” By Patent Pending

Patent Pending have made a name for themselves through relentless touring and their high energy live shows earning them fans around the globe!  The Long Island group are releasing a cover album on May 26th titled “Other People’s Greatest Hits.”   It’s a nostalgic trip from 1995 thru today including hits from Miley Cyrus to Spice Girls – just watch out, they aren’t trying to Rick Roll you just yet.

The band always put their own twist on anything they cover, making each song their own. We’ve heard them play so many awesome covers over the years but nothing prepared us for the collection they’re about to share with the world.

PTPG tapped into their inner divas on “Shout Out To My Ex,” show their Latin side with “Livin La Vida Loca,” turn into EDM stars on an incredibly catchy mashup of “Wasted/Wake Me Up ” by Tiesto & Avicii, and turn into Jersey Boy Frankie Valli with “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.”

Our favorite cover is the very last track, “See You Again” by Miley Cyrus.  The song is still a jam on it’s own but PTPG somehow made it even better!

Whether you like pop punk, EDM or straight up pop music, Patent Pending’s “Other People’s Greatest Hits” is an album the whole family can listen to on repeat.

Listen to “Livin La Vida Loca” below.

Simple Plan Add Summer “NPNHJB” Tour Dates

Normally we aren’t fans of Mondays but we’ll let this one slide because Simple Plan announced more dates for their 15th Anniversary Tour of “No Pads No Helmets…Just Balls” Tour for the Summer!  They’re taking our friends in Patent Pending out with them for this Summer round of dates and we’re so excited to finally see PTPG’s dreams of touring with Simple Plan come true.

In case you haven’t heard of Patent Pending before, 5 years ago, the guys in PTPG wrote an open letter – song actually, to Simple Plan begging them to let them open for the Canadians on a tour or even just one show.  The guys got the chance just before the official start of the NPNHJB Tour in NYC back in March to open and they had such a blast!  The SP fans liked them too because everyone was dancing and waving their pirate hooks in the air during the guys’ set.  They even helped Corey win the Crowd Swimming Championships that night!  I think that counts as a huge success. SP thought so too because they’re taking the guys on tour officially!!

Check out the new Summer dates below and get your tickets when they go on sale on Friday, April 7th.

Artist To Watch: Shiffley

We first saw Long Island’s own Shiffley over the Summer when they opened for our friends in Patent Pending.  They immediately won us over with their synth-driven pop-rock sound and their energetic onstage presence.  We were thrilled we got to see them again recently at Piano’s in NYC.  Their set is a blast from start to finish, including a rock version of Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love,” which we didn’t know we needed until now.  Their single “Cry” has some of the catchiest gang vocals we’ve ever heard (seriously, listen to it once and you’ll be humming it for days, in a good way).

In a few short years, Shiffley have made a name for themselves in the New York music scene, sharing the stage with not only Patent Pending, but also Twenty One Pilots and Plain White Ts.  Band mates Alex Ganes, Alex Jenks, Bryan Contreras, Shaune Killough, and Will Rosati have created the perfect blend of synth driven pop rock.  While you can certainly hear their influences from bands like The Killers, Shiffley have a unique sound that’s all their own.

Their EP, “Anthem City,” is out now and the band is working on their debut album due out (fingers crossed!) sometime this year.    Stream the EP on SoundCloud below and pickup a copy on iTunes now!  Visit Shiffley’s website for upcoming tour dates and more info, and if you can make it out to a show, GO!  And remember to #ShareTheShiff.
