Hailing from Los Angeles, PAT TODD & THE RANKOUTSIDERS have been preaching the gospel of straight-ahead, stripped-down, bullshit-free Rock 'n' Roll since 2004. Their newest release, "The Past Came A Callin'" (2019) on Hound Gawd! Records, has been described as "a brilliant album from start to finish" (Faster & Louder) and "a tremendous album from an L.A. rocker who deserves a few more plaudits" (LA Weekly - Album of the Week).
"There’s no flash sound tricks or auto-tune going on here it’s just the sound of a kick-ass band cutting it up in a sweaty studio knowing that with every song, they capture a little bit more magic than the last take." - RPM Online
"The album reflects the diversity of American rock n' roll. Love, hope, sex, death, betrayal, renewal -- it's all here. Pat Todd's songwriting is a road map that leads back to the self ? an existential longing to reside in the aesthetics of self-creation. Some call it art, others the blues, soul, country, rock n' roll." - forcedexposure.com
"The man is one of our great American songwriters, and he's backed by a band that can rock the hell out of even his most reflective material. This is just a brilliant album from start to finish - an essential purchase for both longtime fans and anyone who enjoys good, solid rock n' roll with a country influence." - Faster and Louder
