Passion Pit cancel forthcoming tour
Fresh from streaming their forthcoming new album Gossamer on NPR, Passion Pit have cancelled their forthcoming tour due to the lead singer Michael Angelakos' mental health.
The full statement can be found below.
On behalf of the band and myself, I would like to greatly apologize for the show cancelations. In order for me to ensure that there will be no further disruptions, I am going to take the time to work on improving my mental health. For now, I'd like to thank all of our fans for their understanding. I hope to see all of you very soon in a much different light.
