My Passion at Corporation, Sheffield

Sheffield had its chance to see rising alternative stars, My Passion as they brought their rebellious metallic punk sound to Corporation. This was My Passion's first headline show in Sheffield and it follows recent acclaim from 'Kerrang!' and 'NME' magazine as well as a top 3 spot in the Kerrang best of 2008 Readers Poll and a Number one spot in 'Rocksound' magazine, My Passion are emerging as potential stars.

The night begins with Freefold (with a rather embarrassing typo of 'Freehold' on the schedule sheet). They do well to generate an atmosphere which was very relaxed, the other bands watching amongst the crowd, with only thirty to forty people there. They are followed by Here's To Tragedy who again maintains the level of entertainment but the crowd seems to saving themselves for the headliners.

The audience step up the energy as My Passion emerges, for such a small venue the room and freedom prove useful to jump and dance around. The music, whether you like it or not, it's undeniably infectious. The band looks to be enjoying themselves screaming, singing, punching and kicking their way through songs Play dirty, Day of the bees and new single Thanks for Nothing, amongst others. The only complaint from the audience would be of the short 35 minute set. Still My Passion end on a high with Never Everland showing why they deserve page space in Kerrang and Rock Sound. It hasn’t gone to their heads as they come straight off stage and into the fans, having chats and signing anything put in front of them.

The band and fans await the release of their first album, 'Corporate Flesh Party', the album comes after years of support slots from artists such as; Jeffree Star, The Automatic, Kill Hannah and most recently Innerpartysystem. So tonights headline slot could be a sign of things to come.

My Passion's debut album is released on the 25th of May, and can be pre ordered now at
