Passion Pit Announces 2009 U.S. Summer Tour Dates :: w/ Austin date (Emo's)

With so many bands to check out at SXSW, of course we couldn't catch everyone we wanted to see. I'm sure glad Passion Pit is coming back to town, cause unfortunately they were one of the few we missed.

The guys have already released an EP, entitled The Chuck of Change, which singer Michael Angelakos originally put together as a (belated) Valentine's Day present for his girlfriend. As luck would have it the "present" was eventually handed out to friends and fellow students at Emerson College and ended up bending the ear of Frenchkiss Records. Their debut full-length,
Manners is due out May 19th. Listen to the first single, "The Reeling" at their Myspace. Pre-order the new album here.

Passion Pit will embarking on a Summer tour and will be swinging by Emo's (outside) here in Austin on June 3rd. Tickets are only $12. Buy them here.

The rest of their tour dates are down below.
