Passion Pit: New Album, North American Dates


Passion Pit
On July 24, Columbia Records will release Gossamer, the highly anticipated follow-up to Passion Pit's critically acclaimed 2009 debut album Manners. The album will be comprised of 12 new tracks that showcase Michael Angelakos' ever-expanding lyrical talents and bring to life his trademark irresistible beats. Gossamer was made throughout 2011 in Los Angeles and New York City, and again finds Angelakos working with Manners producer Chris Zane.

Acclaimed for their unabashedly danceable live performances, Passion Pit is celebrating the upcoming release of Gossamer with a series of warm-up shows this month. They will debut tracks from this new album as well as perform fan favorites from both Manners and Chunk Of Change EP. Passion Pit will then hit the summer festival circuit, beginning with SunFest and Meltdown in May and going on to play coveted slots at New York City’s Governors Ball Music Festival in June, Firefly in July and Lollapalooza, Osheaga and Outside Lands in August. Additionally, Passion Pit has announced two special co-headlining performances at world-renowned venues this summer; Red Rocks on August 7 and the Hollywood Bowl on September 9 (see dates below).
