Ryan Patterson has moved forward from his former band Coliseum after 12 years to his current project Fotocrime. In addition, he has renamed himself R. Pattern and released new music. “Always Hell” is the name of this debut 7” EP as well as the name of the debut single from the EP.
“Always Hell” has an insistent beat with lyrics that are just as tenacious. The song is pure rock, but has a rhythm that draws you into the song.
“I’m driven to make music, to write, to use my voice, to challenge myself and constantly evolve creatively,” Pattern says. “Starting Fotocrime wasn’t as much a decision as a compulsion, an exciting and frightening new story.”
