Whether you desire success or even just survival, the fight never stops. You start swinging at birth only to finally rest at death.

If anybody knows how to fight, it’s OTHERWISE. The born & bred Las Vegas group—Adrian Patrick [vocals] & Ryan Patrick [guitar],—have weathered personal tragedy and

trauma, withstood the tides of the industry, and still stand tall. If anything, the boys are stronger than ever with a one-two punch of airtight guitars, stadium-shaking grooves, and hypnotic hard-hitting hooks.

Over the past decade, they’ve clawed their way through the rock ‘n’ roll ranks and emerged as an unbreakable force. Their catalog spans fan favorites such as True Love Never Dies [2012], Peace At All Costs [2014], and Sleeping Lions [2017]. Signature anthem “Soldiers” has amassed over 84 million

Spotify streams and counting—unprecedented for a rock band of any era. Meanwhile, 2019’s Defy, kickstarted another chapter. “Crossfire” eclipsed 7.9 million Spotify streams followed by “Lifted” with 6.4 million Spotify streams. Loudwire hailed the latter as “a stomp-clap rocker.”

On this trip, they’ve also ignited the stages of Welcome To Rockville, Blue Ridge Rock Fest, and Shiprocked! as well as supporting Stone

Sour, Godsmack, and more. However, their fifth full-length album, Gawdzillionaire, trumpets their fighting

spirit louder than ever before. “We’re bringing some serious issues to light,” exclaims Adrian. “Everybody is going through shit—whether it be macro and socio-economic or personal with their relationships. We needed to

present it all in a bigger picture. At the same time, it’s fun—which is why we came up with this Gawdzillionaire character who’s present in us and all around us. We love video games, comic books, and super villains. Who controls us from within? Who plays the game we’re a part of? Who runs the cool kids table on planet Earth? That’s the Gawdzillionaire. We slip the message in there. We’re the type of

people who are not going to give up on the message, because it has been instilled in us by our immigrant parents. We’re not going to give up on fighting the good fight.”

“After all of these years, the train is still chugging,” agrees Ryan. “It felt like a release to sing about this evil character who we see in society and business. We’re pondering what this crazy thing called money does to us as humans. Sometimes, aspects of society weigh you down so much. We’re flooded with content and numbers. We’re issuing a call to say, ‘Don’t just blindly follow’. Why don’t we all wake up and things might change.”

During 2021, Otherwise assembled what would become Gawdzillionaire producer Matt Good [Asking Alexandria, Hollywood Undead]. This time around, they “dialed up the attitude” and everything else for that matter.

Simultaneously, OTHERWISE inspires change in the world at large. Ryan and Adrian lead the 501c3 Life By Music, which supplies music programs with instruments. The guys visit schools, initiated a partnership with Gibson Guitars, and even have created the Guitar Magic coloring book.

“Hopefully, we’re creating an empowering environment where kids get the spark like I remember when music affected my soul,” Ryan goes on. “There’s nothing like seeing that. It’s cooler than anything we’ve done. It brings back the purity.”

In the end, OTHERWISE are winning this fight. “We have this karmic, eternal debt to our parents and our family,” Ryan leaves off. “I hope what we’re

doing makes them proud. Their investment was never in vain. We’ll never give up. We believe we’re meant to be on the biggest stages. We’ll do whatever it takes. OTHERWISE is alive is alive, and we’re kicking ass.”
