Passion Pit Frontman Cancels Tour to Work On Improving His Mental Health

After announcing the release of its upcoming album, Gossamer, and unveiling the new single “Take A Walk” (see below), dance-pop-rock band Passion Pit have cancelled their forthcoming tour due to the lead singer Michael Angelakos’ mental health (read his full statement below). The band’s other upcoming tour dates, beginning on August 2 at House of Blues in Chicago, are still on at press time. Here’s wishing Angelakos a speedy recovery.

Hello all,

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.

With love,
