Today, Passion Pit released the first single from their highly anticipated album Gossamer. “Take A Walk,” the opening track from the 12-song LP to be released on July 24th on Columbia Records, is streaming now at: http://takeawalk.
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 7th and the Hollywood Bowl on September 9th (see dates below).
Passion Pit is the dynamic musical mission of Michael Angelakos, the electronic wunderkind best known for his complex and multi-layered pop songs. Angelakos, who debuted with his notoriously charming Chunk Of Change EP in 2008, released Passion Pit’s debut full length Manners in 2009.
