Still working on that hot first release.



Late Pass was started by Philip Remarais and Viktor Pacheco while they were in 10th grade. Viktor had just learned to play drums the summer before then and was looking for a guitarist to play with. Philip had also learned guitar around the same time and decided to link up and play. Thus, Late Pass was born.

Rather it was only XLRG back then. They were stuck on band names and stuck XLRG out, thinking that it was cool at the time. Once people heard about their band, they realized that they were embarrassed to tell them the name of it. They switched their name to Halogen then to Shooting Blanks in about a week, around the same time that Chaundranauth Narain became their rhythm guitarist. They played their first show at their school talent show in 11th grade. The show turned out to be both good for such a young band and bad because it was the last show for Chaundranauth, for he was graduating in that June and was leaving the band. That night, Junior Walker approached the band and suggested that he be the replacement. After a brief audition, the band found that he was good for the part because he added yet another flavor to Late Pass; he added jazz influences to the existing mix of smooth and hardcore influences. Denzel Griffith came along shortly after with vocals, auditioning and getting in because he was both good and needed very badly. Rodrick Lee was actually part of the original XLRG, but is always skipped over because he was never fully a member. He participated and would disappear to reappear much later and participate again, creating a cycle. However, today, Rodrick is active in Late Pass as a full-time member.

Today, Late Pass is a five-piece band with influences from Jazz to Reggae and from Pop to Metalcore. Because of this mix, no matter where they derive their songs from, Late Pass still cannot find another band, indie or mainstream, that has a similar sound to them.
