Patrimony and Reno's Failure Machine TONIGHT!

Posted By on Wed, Feb 12, 2014 at 1:04 PM

Tonight, Failure Machine, a soulful, punk duo are bringing their original songs and roughed-up covers all the way from Reno, Nev. to take the stage at Volcanic Theatre Pub alongside local act Patrimony.
The Source caught up with lead singer and guitarist of Patrimony, Trevor Martell about the the band's history and influences prior to the show.

Check out the band's three track EP below and live tonight at 9 pm.

After meeting in high school, Trevor Martell (vocals and guitar), Wyatt Phillip (bass) and Jason Allenby (drums) started writing music together and despite some former tiffs, the chemistry of Patrimony stuck.

"Wyatt and I used to despise each other, calling each other punks, until I heard him listening to the White Stripes one day," explained Martell. "He had never played an instrument, so I invited him over to listen to these songs. The three of us have been best friends ever since."

The White Stripes are a clear influence (while the group's outfits look more guided by Led Zeppelin who they also claim as an influence) from the cracking, forward vocals to the driving bass and drums topped by blues and rock inspired guitar-riffs.

But the band isn't just listening to Jack White as a musical guide. Martell says the group is constantly growing and evolving.

"You have to see us live to really understand our music, as our influences are constantly changing and almost every song has a different feel. We're inspired by everything from Beethoven to Led Zeppelin."
