Biography

Releasing his debut album, "Laughing In The Face Of Death", Kevin McClure went under the moniker "Unscene Patrol". The only permament member of the band, McClure has been reputed for his on-stage presence and musical originality.

"The name 'Unscene Patrol' actually was birthed while I was working as a security guard in Omaha, Nebraska," says McClure, "The idea behind the name is to bring attention to the problem that we as a human race are so obsessed with compartmentalizing ourselves. We do it with our cliques, our 'scenes' if you will, and our literary, cinematic, and musical genres. I want to eliminate that. We as a human race should be unified, or at least making the effort to destroy the force that pushes us apart."

Gaining comparisons to bands and artists like Switchfoot, Anberlin, Relient K, Jimi Hendrix, Taking Back Sunday, The Killers, Foo Fighters, Envy On the Coast, and Remedy Drive, Unscene Patrol has a wide range that brings fans of multitudes of different musical tastes together. "There are so many different bands and artists and genres that I enjoy, so I guess that the sound you hear on stage and on recordings is my failed attempt at sounding like any combination of all of the music I enjoy," jokes McClure, "There is just so much great music out there, and I want to sink my teeth in as many styles as I can, even if it's just a hint here and there of each kind."

The full-length debut album "Laughing In The Face Of Death" was released in September 2011 and is available on iTunes, Amazon Mp3, CDBaby, and many more online outlets, as well as physical copies sold at the band's bandcamp page and at shows.

Lyrics

We Can Be One

Written By: Kevin McClure

I cannot stop thinking how I stood on the brink
and then I fell off the edge, yeah
I keep replayin in my head
How I fell off the edge
I keep holding onto all the things I shouldn’t want to
They’re just leading me to death
I keep replaying in my head
How I’ve been leading myself to death

I know there’s something at the tide
more than I hoped for from the other side
a dream of a beautiful scene
I see now I’ve been fighting for
something that just wont win the war
Now I’m sure
Now I’m sure
We can be one

I cannot stop breathing like a metronome beating
even if I lost the beat, yeah
bring it back with the heat
in my veins with my heartbeat, beat, beat

We can be one
We can belong
We can see the blue in the sky
reflect off lakes in my own eyes
We can be one
We can belong
We can see the blue in the sky
reflect off lakes in my own eyes
Off your own eyes
look into my eyes

I know there’s something at the tide
we can be one, we can belong
I see now I’m finally fighting for
something that’s worth so much more
Now I’m sure
Now I’m sure
We can be one

Shadows

Written By: Kevin McClure

Sunshine
comes with early morning rise
starshine
comes with steady sleep in my eyes
lights glare
hangs on the window pane there
i swear
ive never seen more peaceful air

and I hear your voice
call my name
The silence before the storm
Is all to blame

let me see shadows
Shadows
So I know you’re watching me
let me see shadows
Shadows
so i know im walking into victory
Shadows lead me

moonlight
please help me to shine so bright
I wish i may i wish i might
be shown the lining silver in the sky

starlight starbright
first star i see tonight
i wish i may i wish i might
beg of you a prayer tonight
starlight starbright
first star i see tonight
i wish i may i pray i might
beg of you a prayer tonight
Shadows lead me
