2020 PASSAFIRE Recap

2020. What a weird year. Passafire started it off on several high notes playing shows, festivals, and our first time playing the U.S. Virgin Islands. The live music industry then came to a halt in March due to COVID-19. We still felt the need to stay busy.

Over the summer, we met up at Passafarm to write and record for our next album. In the fall, we rented out a venue and hired a full production team to host our first ever live stream ticketed event. Throughout the year, we released 2 new singles and contributed to 2 compilation albums. Despite our touring limitations, we still got things done. We’re hopeful for a more productive 2021!
