It’s another amazing rise in fortunes for Passion Pit since starting out five years ago as Angelokos’ solo laptop project. After forming an actual band, Passion Pit’s angle of ascent was steep. In 2008 they signed with Frenchkiss, were named Best New Local Act by the Boston Phoenix and placed in Pitchfork’s Top 40 Best Videos with “Sleepyhead.” In 2009, the band’s debut album Manners was released and the group’s songs gained high profile exposure on television and in film. In 2010, Passion Pit opened eight dates on Muse’s U.S. tour.
The anticipation surrounding Gossamer and the fevered response to this year’s tour finds Passion Pit charging headlong toward the next level of success … and expectation.
