Ryan Patterson has spent more than two and a half decades enriching the legacy of his city with his passionate and activist approach to punk, his rigorous work ethic in the local music scene, his distinctive graphic design work, and his contributions to nearly every aspect of DIY culture. After twelve years as the frontman of the forward-thinking punk band COLISEUM, Patterson sought new sonic inspirations in the urban centers of London, New York, and Berlin, drawing from the passion of his hardcore roots as he tapped into the sound of classic EBM and post-punk artists for FOTOCRIME.
Fotocrime's fourth album, Accelerated finds the band leaping forward from their signature darkwave-leaning post-punk into new territory. Fotocrime's fourth album and first for new label home Artoffact Records, Accelerated finds the band leaping forward from their signature darkwave-leaning post-punk into new territory.
The culmination of everything Fotocrime has worked toward to date, Accelerated is the sound of a genre-bending electronic-infused post-punk band at the peak of their powers.
