Passion Pit tours the U.S. this fall

Passion Pit tours the U.S. this fall

Passion Pit is set to tour the U.S. this fall, playing select dates including Los Angeles' The Wiltern, the House of Blues in Dallas and New Orleans' Joy Theater.

Kindred, the band's highly anticipated new album, is out now on Columbia Records and continues to receive widespread critical acclaim:

"Singer Michael Angelakos' writing remains sharp, telling stories about family drama that are complex yet conversational."—Rolling Stone

"Passion Pit's Michael Angelakos is a master of creating ebullient, triumphant-sounding pop…strange and surprising…"—Chicago Tribune

"Frenetic, propulsive and bristling with life…"—NPR

"…Angelakos' most concise record by a good measure, distilling the high-fructose melodies and synth glaze into something like Passion Pit concentrate."—Pitchfork

"…musically effusive, and catchy as ever."—Philadelphia Inquirer

"Michael Angelakos and co. have mastered the intricacies of their signature style."—SPIN

Kindred was written by Passion Pit creative force and frontman Michael Angelakos and recorded in New York City. The album was produced by Angelakos alongside longtime collaborators and co-producers Chris Zane and Alex Aldi, as well as Benny Blanco.

Angelakos' songwriting process for Passion Pit has always been to filter and reshape. Many sounds on Kindred that one would assume are synths are actually Angelakos' voice, manipulated by computers and pedals. Angelakos frequently repurposes sound: using Top 40 signifiers for outré ends, crushing weird natural and synthetic detritus together into pop (Brent Katz, liner notes, 2015).

Kindred follows Passion Pit's 2012 hit Gossamer, which found the band selling out Madison Square Garden, appearing on "Saturday Night Live" and a special "Live on Letterman" performance, and playing at major festivals including Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, Outside Lands and more.
