Goodfellow Records has announced the signings of Philadelphia, PA-based hardcore quintet PASSION. The group's new album, "The Fierce Urgency of Now", is scheduled for release on October 10.According to a press release, "PASSION is set on a goal that surpasses playing music. That goal is to bring their own brand of furious, metal-driven hardcore to the masses, while leaving no one behind. They strive to write songs that cannot be easily dismissed and hope to leave those listening wanting more. . . Vocalist Kenny Harris' lyrics are more geared towards increasing awareness of sensitive, taboo topics that range from child molestation to the overwhelming amount of censorship found on the airwaves. Such topics are touched on in hopes of encouraging more people to speak their mind, and not keep their feelings to themselves. Musically, the pace ranges from frantic to slow and droning, but it is always loud and extremely powerful. They may be treading on well-worn ground, but there is a certain unique flavor that is PASSION's own. . . PASSION may be the only metal/hardcore band that is as much influenced by the sheer talent and inspiration of KANYE WEST and DREAM THEATER as the underground integrity of NOFX and BANE."
