Passion Pit Announce U.S. Summer Tour Dates

    Summer time is the right time for Passion Pit’s synth-pop candy hooks, and to celebrate the season, the much buzzed about Boston quintet will tour these United States in May and June. The group will be touring in support of their debut album, Manners , scheduled to be released on May 26 on Frenchkiss Records. The album’s first single, “The Reeling,” was premiered yesterday on their Myspace page and featured here on Prefix . Passion Pit will focus their energies almost exclusively on a blitzkrieg of the east and west coasts, with a few scattered dates in Texas for the sake of diversity, before heading home to the Paradise.
