Passenger Action

You Can’t Keep A Good Band Dow.

You know the old adage: When God closes a practice space door, he opens a cargo van window. And so it was with Passenger Action. Members Shawn Moncreiff and Clay Shea recently wrapped up a 13-year run in Choke, a band that created and defined the term tech-rock. Playing faster and more complexly than anyone at the time, these boys trail-blazed a sound for many acts that followed. Ryan Podlubny (Pud) played most recently in Toronto’s The Fullblast.

You Can’t Keep A Good Band Dow.

You know the old adage: When God closes a practice space door, he opens a cargo van window. And so it was with Passenger Action. Members Shawn Moncreiff and Clay Shea recently wrapped up a 13-year run in Choke, a band that created and defined the term tech-rock. Playing faster and more complexly than anyone at the time, these boys trail-blazed a sound for many acts that followed. Ryan Podlubny (Pud) played most recently in Toronto’s The Fullblast. Playing on the Short Controlled Bursts record, touring with Rise Against, Alexisonfire, Boys Night Out, and shooting a video for the record filled up most his time with them. Prior to that he was playing bass in Detroit’s fordirelifesake. Allan Harding was born into a family/wedding band in his hometown of Wadena, SK. He went on to play a variety of instruments in some 41 acts (!) and is most noted for Edmonton’s now defunct Thirty Nights of Violence.

Passenger Action came together in September 2006. A natural chemistry fueled the writing of their Debut EP Acoustic Blueprints, which was independently released in the summer of 2007. Recorded with Braden Sustrik, Acoustics Blueprints was mixed and mastered by Greg Dawson (Moneen, The End). Passenger Action toured in support of Acoustic Blueprints with Moneen, Ghosts of Modern Man, and Attack in Black.

Passenger Action has since signed to Smallman Records (home to Choke previously) and released their first full length in February 2009. Smallman also re-released Acoustic Blueprints digitally. Watch for them on dates across western Canada in the summer of 2009 - including appearances at Warped in Vancouver and Calgary.
