Brooklyn, NY’s Pass Away started as an idea between Mike Ireland and Kellen Robson of I Am The Avalanche and Eric Fairchild of Crime In Stereo.
The guys wanted to do a band that was strictly for fun and a total escape from daily work life and stresses. A common love for 90s West Coast punk and the Replacements was the main influence for the first 2 EPs. ‘Hey Death’ was released in 2015 on Black Numbers and was well-received. Lots of shows and even more writing followed. The ‘Sink Your Hooks In’ EP came next in 2016 and offered a more dynamic shift in songwriting and more balanced sound within the band.
With the new full-length ‘The Hell I’ve Always Seen’ (out May 25th on Suburbia Records) Pass Away has truly found their sound. The record has a personality of its own and a vulnerability that’s been missing in punk music.
