STRYPER Frontman's Son Discusses FLIGHT PATTERNS Band

Eric Blair of "The Blairing Out With Eric Blair Show" recently conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Michael Sweet Jr. — son of STRYPER frontman Michael Sweet — and bassist Shane Perry of the Boston-based quintet FLIGHT PATTERNS. Watch the chat below.

Emerging into the music scene by way of a full U.S. tour, FLIGHT PATTERNS is a refreshing blend of pop rock in the Massachusetts music scene. The band is composed of past members from several local acts and maintains roots in a wide variety of influences. Sweet and Max Prussner provide dual harmonies along with Perry's backing support. Rounding out the lineup are synth player Scott LaChapelle and drummer Brian Bruzzi.

Although the band has found an impressive jump start, their work ethic and motivation is unparalleled with others in the local music scene. After writing and recording an EP during the summer of 2009, the band moved into a practice space and mastered their set six days a week.

Their debut EP, titled "The Runaway", contains catchy lyrical hooks and guitar riffs that continue to play in listeners heads long after the album ends. The album, released on Deep South Digital, is available at shows and for download on iTunes.
