Passion Pit Cancel Tour Dates, Parklife 2012 Remains Unaffected

Written by Marc Zanotti on July 17, 2012

Passion Pit’s new LP Gossamer is almost upon us. The band’s second studio album is all set for release next week on Tuesday, July 24. As per the norm, Passion Pit were just about to embark on a prolonged national and international tour to celebrate and promote the new record, but now the band has announced the cancellation of the first 6 dates of their Stateside tour.

To announce the show’s cancellations, Passion Pit vocalist Michael Angelakos posted an official statement (included below) on the band’s Facebook page and website, declaring that he is currently suffering from undisclosed mental health problems that need addressing before the band can venture out on their extended tour.

As noted in Angelakos’ statement, fans can check out Passion Pit’s current tour schedule to see which dates have been affected. Looking at the dates, it appears that Australian fans can still anticipate the band arriving in Australia to perform as part of Parklife 2012.

Passion Pit recently made a Gold Fields’ remix of their latest single Take a Walk, available for free download. You can listen to the remix below.

Music Feeds wishes Michael and Passion Pit all the best and a quick recovery.

SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM MICHAEL
07/16/12

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.

The tour page on our website currently reflects all upcoming tour dates.

With love,
Michael
