Passion is a new British hard rock band inspired by the 80’s and 90’s giants of the genre. They play straight up melodic hard rock, with bold and exciting hooks and a seductive musicality, as evidenced on their self-titled debut album, which was released via Frontiers in late January 2020.

The concept behind Passion is simple: great musicianship and songwriting, memorable melodies and hooks, serve the song first. “In addition to this,” continues Lion, “we wanted to create an act using fictional characters (hence the names) as we feel humour is positive. After all, this is the entertainment industry. Don’t let that confuse you though, as we’re not a joke band. We’re deeply passionate about creating high quality rock music and we’re also very enthusiastic about entertaining an audience.”
Passion play straight up melodic hard rock, with bold and exciting hooks and a seductive musicality. “We love soulful vocals with razor sharp highs, memorable guitar riffs and tasteful solos. If you like ‘songs’, then you’ll enjoy Passion, and I’m confident that we can make a mark on the rock and metal scenes the world over. it just takes time, but we’re gonna get there, I promise,” concludes Lion.
Passion are an absolute must for fans of the likes of AC/DC, Aerosmith, Kiss, Danger Danger, Foreigner, Journey, Ratt and Van Halen.
