Passafire recently announced the band will continue touring in the spring, this time crossing the country in support of the release of their upcoming Interval EP. Fans will have the opportunity to hear new songs from The Pier’s 2014 Live Artist of the Year, as voted for by YOU The Fans. Lets check out the details.
Following 2013’s release of their fifth full-length studio record,Vines, in 2014 Passafire spent the year touring in support of that album. The band also spent time later in 2014 writing and recording new music at their own studio in Savannah, Georgia as well as once again returning to Texas’ Sonic Ranch Studios.
New songs started to make appearances in the band’s sets last fall and throughout their recent winter tour. Rocker “Wheels of Steel,” was the first track of new material added to the show, followed by the catchy tune “Bobber”, fronted by bassist and vocalist Will Kubley. Later the tracks “Finding Me” and “Out of Sight” trickled into shows eventually making their Youtube debut via the band’s passionate fanbase. Check out the fan captured video of these tracks below.
Now after being road-tested and fan-approved, those 4 tracks will compose Passafire’s sixth studio release. This month, Passafire announced the initial details surrounding their first EP. Titled Interval, the EP will hit stores on March 24th, the band’s second release on Easy Star Records. Also revealed was the Interval art, illustrated by Passafire Drummer, Nick Kubley.
To promote this new record Passafire has also announced the addition of 24 dates to their 2015 touring schedule. After taking a short spring-break off the road, Passafire will head back out on tour the day after their EP drops. The Interval Spring Tour will feature these new tracks as well as the varied mix of Passafire favorites, and are sure to include a cool cover or two.
