Passenger is the third album by the Danish industrial metal band Mnemic, and is the first to feature vocalist Guillaume Bideau (formerly of Scarve).

Originally, mixing duties were to be handled by Andy Sneap, but the band later decided to have Tue Madsen (producer and mixer on both previous albums) mix instead. Christian Olde Wolbers from Fear Factory also did co-production work for this album. Since this album, the guitarists use downtuned 7 string guitars.

To promote the album, the band went on a tour of North America in January and February 2007 with God Forbid, Goatwhore, Arsis, The Human Abstract, and Byzantine and on a tour of the UK with the Deftones in March. The album shifted 1,223 copies in the US during its first week of release.[citation needed]

Due to much more promotion by the band's official website, as well as the record label and fans alike; Passenger has sold close to 50,000 copies in North America.[citation needed]
