'''Never Pass Entry''' are an alternative rock band, formed in Northern Ireland in 2004. They play a dirge rock with a strong influence from the early 1990s Seattle bandsand a very punk rock focused sound, however, more recently, they have experimented in what some would call a "Radiohead-lite" fashion Never Pass Entry can be traced to their first song "Airstrip", written by Thomas Brownlee while he was still in Vivacity along with Stephen Moore (guitarist) and Chris Chambers. Vivacity also featured occasional guest musicians in the form of Ross Henry and David McClure. They had no real success, but did self-release various EPs and recorded enough material for an album.

After Vivacity disbanded due to "creative differences", Thomas realised he had a lot of songs left that he wanted to work on. What surfaced was the "Sepia Diagram Demos". A general collection of unfinished ideas which saw little use once the band came together bar "Airstrip" and "Systematic Devastation". Thom (bass and vocals) then asked Ross and Chris if they wanted to join the band, on guitar and drums, respectively.

In 2007, Matt Sloan was added to the line-up to play rhythm guitar and perform backing vocals. Never Pass Entry started as a noise rock band with tracks like "Systematic Devastation", but eventually took on a sound more familiar to heavier punk rock drawing influence from Mudhoney and Nirvana. It was after the recording of a very mellow, almost haunting song "Empty", that the band decided to experiment a bit more, which can be seen on the keyboard based track "The Traveller" and the solo Thom acoustic song "Place & Time". They don't hold themselves to a particularly style while writing, meaning anything is possible, but they seem to favour punk rock and acoustic songs. Their live sets tend to finish with "Airstrip", a song they've recorded multiple times, but length and how abrasive the song is depends entirely on how they feel, the longest version was almost 10 minutes long, but depending on the length of the jam, it's generally around 4 to 6 minutes long. This song has little artistic merit and is an excuse, as the band have stated to "rock out".
