True Love Never Dies is not just a group of songs, it’s a journey that tells a story. Sibling rockers Adrian and Ryan Patrick have dedicated the disc to their late cousin, a man they say always wore his heart on his sleeve when it came to living life. “We don’t really have the words to convey what the release of this album means to us,” explain the brothers. “So much hard work, so much sacrifice, so much heartache has gone into our music. ‘True Love Never Dies’ is a testament to those who have gone before us. We are deeply humbled to honor them in such a way”, said Adrian Patrick to Loudwire. ”The single “Soldiers” is reminiscence of the voice of those who fight for what they believe no matter their circumstances.. The single reminds me of an anthem for the future generations and our ability to become the future.

How is the tour with Stone Sour and Papa Roach going ?

The tour is amazing, and one the best that we have been a part of. We have the ability to perform before a diverse audience. I know from my own personal experience that I use to not ever show up early for the opening act of shows, but that is not the case here. We are performing in front of 2,000 to 5,000 people. Papa Roach, Stone Sour, the crews, and the fans are amazing. The atmosphere is very relaxed. Tonight we are opening at El Corazon in Seattle, Washington, which is something that we have always wanted to do.

Who was the most influential artist when you were growing up that inspired you to become the artist you are today?

Great question. I grew up listening to Reggae music like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Black Hula. Later we defined our own music style that we use today. I grew up in the radio generation where I listened to U2 and Rage Against the Machine. I really like bands that carry a message.

What feelings do you want your music to evoke in your listeners or audience ?

I want them to feel a wide range of emotions. To feel everything from happy, sad, and bliss. As humans we feel a wide range of emotions on a daily basis, and I feel the album “True love Never Dies” addressing all these common human emotions.

What is the newest life lessons you have learned lately?

Another great question. I would have to say that I am a work in progress. My biggest thing is letting go. I have had a hard time of letting things stay in the past. Today I am focusing on staying in the now.

Any legendary venues or festivals you dream of playing?

With this tour I am already attenfding to some amazing festivals. We played at The Roxy Tuesday March 5 and that was amazing, and we got to meet Eddie Van Halen. Of course every band wants to sell out at Madison Gardens, but as far as festivals I would love to play at The Download Festival, RockNess Music Festival in Scottland.

What music are you currently listening to or would like us to know about ?

I am currently listening to M83 Hurry up we are dreaming album. On the bus we have been listening to Day to Remember.
