Coming at you from Nottingham and born in 2011, Patriot Rebel have built up an impressive reputation by delivering engaging live shows and by putting out a series of releases that have ignited and excited the UK’s rock and metal fraternity.
Taking influence from the likes of Alter Bridge and Shinedown through to Black Stone Cherry and Avenged Sevenfold, the Brit hard rockers have shaped a sound that is original, yet accessible. Patriot Rebel have just released the explosive new video for ‘Self Hate’. The video is taken from their forthcoming new EP ‘Cynics Playground’, which arrives on Friday 3rd June.
The road for Patriot Rebel has been a progressive one; after meticulously fine-tuning their live set, the five-some began to pick up a growing reputation for their live performances. It was no surprise that extensive touring and festivals soon followed, as the band secured main support slots with the likes of Y&T, Tesseract, The Treatment, Jettblack and Skarlett Riot. And it wasn’t long before the ascending rockers sold out the legendary ‘Rock City’ in Nottingham.
With Patriot Rebel’s live reputation thriving, the alt rockers turned their attention to releasing their debut record ‘Two Worlds’. Produced by Matt Elliss (Black Spiders, Terrorvision, Skarlett Riot), the record went on to receive huge acclaim from Big Cheese Magazine and Rock Sound, as well as rave reviews from many key online outlets. The riff beasts continued their climb and released a video single for ‘Propaganda’ from the EP. The ‘Propaganda’ video went on to grace TV screens and was put on heavy rotation with Scuzz TV, with the single being playlisted by Planet Rock Radio for their ‘New Rock Show’.
Patriot Rebel now set loose their new EP ‘Cynics Playground’ this June and it even manages to eclipse their impressive debut record. The band lift the explosive ‘Self Hate’ as the first video single and it’s an absolute belter, calling to mind everyone from Stone Sour and Alter Bridge through to Avenged Sevenfold.
