New Album: Passion Pit - Gossamer

Passion Pit

On July 24th, Passion Pit will release Gossamer, the expansive new album that will serve as a follow-up to the band's 2009 full-length debut, Manners. Of the album, frontman Michael Angelakos explains, “on Gossamer there is more of a dichotomy between the lyrics and the music. You hear my lyrics more precisely, which is something I was ready for. The lyrics on this album have a lot to say about what the last two years of my life have been troubled with.”
