Led by Michael Angelakos, Passion Pit is an indie-electronica act from Cambridge, Massachusetts, US, who have become an international success and favorites on the summer festival circuit.

Passion Pit arose out of a Valentine’s Day gift, a collection of songs written by Angelakos (lead vocals, keyboards) to his then-girlfriend. The songs impressed his friends, encouraging Angelakos to pursue his music, adding further members to create a full band. The songs he had written soon became the material for Passion Pit’s debut EP, “Chunk of Change,” which was released in September 2008, on Frenchkiss Records. The band gathered momentum, finding critical praise, gaining support slots with acts such as Death Cab for Cutie.

Following the EP release, Columbia took notice, agreeing to joint-release their debut record, “Manners” alongside Frenchkiss, hitting the shelves in May 2009. The album went on to be hugely successful, with Passion Pit becoming one of the top indie acts of the year. Songs from the album were featured on a host of television programs in the US and the UK, with Passion Pit becoming festival favorites that summer.

It was not until 2012 that Passion Pit returned with new music, releasing their second effort, “Gossamer,” in July 2012. The album continued to find Passion Pit critical success and popularity, touring extensively after its release. The album peaked at number four in the US charts, as well as charting highly in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. A brief hiatus ensued in 2012, due to illness, with Passion Pit not returning to live performances until 2013. Passion Pit then began work on a new album in 2014, with an expected release of April 2015.
