Passing Sirens was founded in 2012 as the brainchild of guitarist Todd Michael. Through years of trial & audition, Todd was then able to procure a line-up he was comfortable bringing into studio to realize his ideas. In early 2014, Passing Sirens recorded This Side of Heaven with Eric LaBrosse of Cherry Pit Studios WI. However, still unsatisfied, Todd continued with the trial & audition process in hopes of finding members with congruent ideas & aspirations. In early 2015, Passing Sirens' current line-up began to embody itself with the addition of vocalist RW Cartwright and bassist Jason Thompson.
