The very talented musical quartet from Savannah, Georgia has hit the road once again! Just a few weeks after finishing up the Heatseekers Tour with Iration and Pacific Dub, Passafire has announced their plans for a Spring Tour!
One date that stood out when I asked the band which show they are most excited about playing, was KUKQ’s That Damn Show in Mesa, Arizona where they will be playing alongside some highly recognized names like Bad Religion, AWOLnation, Katastro, Fenix TX, The Veragroove and HB Surround Sound to name a few.
Keyboardist, Mike DeGuzman, had this to say about the Arizona show, “We unfortunately didn’t get around to playing in AZ at all last year, so we’re happy to be coming back for the second time this year. On top of that, we’ll be playing alongside Bad Religion & AWOLNATION, which will be a lot of fun!”
As many of you may already know, on February 23rd, Passafire’s trailer was broken into and almost $8,000 worth of equipment was stolen from right outside lead singer, Ted Bowne’s house. With plenty of upcoming shows booked and no instruments to play them, the band was forced to create a “Stolen Gear Fundraiser” and asked family, friends, and fans to help raise money to purchase new equipment.
After reaching their goal, they shut down the donations page and the shows went on. As if Passafire wasn’t already appreciative for their huge following, this unfortunate event has made the guys even more grateful for their fans!
When asked about the situation, bassist and vocalist, Will Kubley, expressed his gratitude for everything by saying, “It was amazing to see how connected the fanbase is, and how they just genuinely wanted us to be able to play music again. It made us really appreciate how far we come to make so many great friends that care and respect us that much. We can’t say thank you enough.”
That being said, don’t forget to check out Passafire’s upcoming shows in a town near you! These guys obviously never tire out so make sure to check back soon with The Pier for an update about what the band is currently working on!
