Passion Pit

An album of tunes that front man Michael Angelakos wrote for a girlfriend, 2008's Chunk of Change, quickly established Passion Pit in the indie rock world; the single, "Sleepyhead," which features ricocheting electronic beats and a vocal sample from Irish singer Mary O'Hara, was a huge underground hit. Thanks to positive reviews from publications such Pitchfork, Chunk of Change received enough attention that the major labels came calling and the band signed to Columbia Records in 2009 for its full-length debut, Manners. That album featured glitchy synth-pop singles such as "Little Secrets" and "The Reeling," and the band's popularity rose once again. After a successful tour in support of Manners that included a raucous sold out show here at the House of Blues in 2010, the band returned last year with Gossamer, an album that debuted near the top to the U.S. pop charts the first week of its release. The group canceled initial tour dates after Angelakos took time away from the band to seek treatment (and then cancelled more dates earlier this year, including this local appearance which was originally scheduled for February) but seems to be back on track.
