OTHERWISE and Mascot Records will release the band’s new studio album
globally on November 8. The record is the band’s fourth studio release of new repertoire, and first for Mascot Label Group.

A little danger makes rock music memorable. The edges cut deep and hit just as hard as any hook does, leaving a mark forever. Tapping into the spirit of rebelliousness, OTHERWISE embrace those edges on Defy. The Las Vegas quartet—Adrian Patrick [lead vocals], Ryan Patrick [guitar, vocals], Tony Carboney [bass, vocals], and Brian Medeiros [drums]—push the boundaries of their signature style in terms of both songcraft and sonic experimentation alike. Most importantly, the boys hold nothing back…

“Rock ‘n’ roll was always meant to be dangerous,” Adrian proclaims. “We grew up in the last era where nineties bands were Soul Rebels. They stood for something. They didn’t conform. Since the greatest risks yield the greatest return, why play it safe? We decided to swing for the fucking fences this time. In between the last album and now, we changed everything. I had two sons, and it took their births for me to go, ‘Fuck it, we’ve got to shoot for the goddamned stars’.” An impressive run thus far fortified a launchpad for them to shoot for the stars. OTHERWISE’s quiet grind quietly elevated the group to the forefront of 21 st century rock. Since their self-titled independent debut in 2006, they unleashed a string of fan favorite albums—True Love Never
Dies [2012], Peace At All Costs [2014], and Sleeping Lions [2017]. Along the way, they tallied 40 million-plus streams and shared the stage with everyone from Stone Sour to Papa Roach in addition to shutting down Welcome To Rockville, Rocklahoma, and Shiprocked!, to name a few. Sleeping Lions signaled the current turning point. They welcomed Tony and Brian into the fold, and it would be their last offering for their previous label.

In the end, OTHERWISE do the most dangerous thing possible and uproot all expectations. “When you listen to the record, I hope you go, ‘I did not expect that, but I love it’,” Adrian leaves off. “It’s real rock ‘n’ roll with live guitars and drums, but it’s personal. This is my fucking life. There’s no turning back. This band is the future of my family. It means everything to me—and all of us. This is OTHERWISE.”
