Long Island, New York pop-punk band Patent Pending, who won Billboard's 2012 Battle of the Bands this spring and earned a performance at the Billboard Music Awards in the process, knows its way around high-energy, guitar-driven three-chord rockers. But the quintet shows off a more sensitive side with its video for the wistful, acoustic-tinged "Spin Me Around," which Billboard.com exclusive premieres in the video player below.
Patent Pending: Rob Felicetti, Joe Ragosta, Marc Kantor, Corey DeVincenzo, Anthony Mingoia
If singer/guitarist Joe Ragosta seems especially adept at being the groom in the clip, which centers on his joyous wedding, it's little wonder since he recently tied the knot. Ragosta's fellow bandmates guitarist Rob Felicetti, drummer Anthony Mingoia, guitarist Marc Kantor and bassist Corey DeVincenzo appear in the video as ecstatic wedding guests.
"Spin Me Around" is the current single from Patent Pending's latest album, "Second Family." The hardworking, self-made band, who formed a decade ago, just kicked off a tour of the U.K. and Ireland that runs through the end of October.
