Plymouth alternative rock four piece Patrons release their new stand-alone single ‘Deathbed’. “It’s more than a compulsion” says lead singer Danny Brooks. “It’s doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down; the addiction of being in this band is a juggernaut” Watch here
‘Deathbed’ sees Patrons take their strand of unique emotive rock even further than before. “Deathbed was an important song for me personally.” continues Brooks. “Almost 2 years ago I became a father, which was the greatest moment of my life. But due to complications, my wife became very ill and has been ever since. We have spent most of the last couple of years in and out of hospital, and the song deals with the fears, frustrations and helplessness of some of our darkest moments.”
Patrons recorded the song with award winning producer Eds Johns at Park Studios, Brighton. The pairing sees both parties bringing their talents together to create something that embodies the live passions they both share.
It is clear why Patrons have received the wealth of critical-acclaim over the last 2 years. There are few bands these days that can craft such intricate and personal music in the studio, whilst maintaining such ferociously passionate performances on stage.
Danny, Olly, Mark and James have been the closest of friends for the majority of their lives, and you can really tell that this is personal for them. When a band is built upon such strong foundations, there aren’t many things that can stand in their way. You don’t come off stage with bloodied hands and blinded by sweat for nothing.
The band draw inspiration from individual events, feeding on whatever life throws at them. Musically, the band’s influences are ever growing; yet there is a deep-rooted love of the epic scale of song-craft by bands like Black Foxxes, Arcane Roots, Bad Sign and Manchester Orchestra.
