Passion Pit has announced details for a follow-up to 2009′s Manners. The new album, titled Gossamer, will be released on July 24 via Columbia.
Gossamer looks to have more of a lyrical emphasis than previous Passion Pit releases. “You hear my lyrics more precisely, which is something I was ready for,” lead vocalist Michael Angelakos said in the press release. “The lyrics on this album have a lot to say about what the last two years of my life have been troubled with.”
Passion Pit will be celebrating the upcoming release of Gossamer with a handful of warm-up shows. These shows will feature tracks from the new album along with favorites from Manners and the Chunk Of Change EP. Passion Pit will be hitting the summer festival circuit as well.
