Passafire Release Date, Tour & Single

Savannah, GA based rock band Passafire will release their fourth studio album, Start From Scratch, on September 20th via their newly formed, FlameGuy Records. Currently performing on the Vans Warped Tour, Passafire has premiered the title track from the new album and we have it available for stream. Passafire has also announced they will kick off their “Start From Scratch Fall Tour” with special guests, Jimkata, in September in support of the new album.

Passafire spent the beginning of 2011 in El Paso, TX where they recorded new album Start From Scratch with producer Paul Leary (guitarist for Butthole Surfers and producer for Sublime and Meat Puppets). For their fourth album, the band explored their roots and broadened their horizons further than ever before, incorporating new sounds and ideas within the music.. They have been seen live, playing a ton of new songs off their new album including album titled track “Start From Scratch”, “Trainwreck”, “Dimming Sky” and a song that may have been called “Rubber Bands”.

“This album represents a new era of Passafire music in that it digs deeper into what we have only scratched the surface of so far in the studio,” says Bowne. “We got to elaborate on our ideas of incorporating electronic and acoustic sounds surrounding the core style we have already established. Fans can expect a few acoustic “slow jam ballads” as well as a few new up-beat rockers that push the boundaries of Passafire’s hard rock side. The lyrics are playful, insightful, and carefully placed. Once again we have managed to make a record with no profanity which, I think, helps to push it out toward a broader audience. There are songs with stories behind them and songs written like abstract pieces of art. It’s a good variety of slow and fast paced stuff with a good amount of synths and acoustic.” -Ted Bowne of Passafire
