"Dark Indie Folk meets Outlaw Country when The Sudden Passion breaks out the Acoustic Guitars and Lo-Fi Synths to sing you sleazy tales of the road. "
The Sudden Passion started off in 2005 as a collection M. Palermo's (of Electro group Femme Fatality) Indie/Alt-Country demo tracks. The songs share the stories of his tour adventures, love sagas, and tales of barroom brawls. While all the ditties were originally showcased as solo/acoustic, the project had evolved into a full 4 piece band featuring Matt Henderson (ex Still Life) on bass, Shane Fabulous (Midnight Dance Craze, Femme Fatality ) on guitar/synth, and Andrew Roberts on drums.
"Central Standard Time", their first full length album, was released digitally in August 2010. It was recorded in in St. Louis, MO (where Palermo is originally from) and Los Angeles, CA (where the band now resides).
"Sucessful Friends", the new 5 song EP, is set to be released on November 1st 2011. A video for the title track was released on October 3, 2011.
