Passion Pit Announces Release Date For Debut Full-Length



Following up on their industry-acclaimed EP Chunk of Change, Passion Pit is releasing their first full-length album, Manners, this upcoming May. We already know they've taken a page out of Columbia Records label mates Peter Bjorn and John's handbook and enlisted a bunch of school kids for one of the singles, so this time around we're assuming the album isn't just another belated Valentine's Day present made for Michael Angelakos' girlfriend.

While reports have been semi-conflicting (e-mails out of Gigantic Studios where they recorded Manners have mentioned Columbia Records as the home of the release, and press agents at the Columbia U.S. offices have been name dropping their recent signing) Manners is apparently due out on Frenchkiss in the U.S. on May 26, and the UK release will be eight days prior on Columbia Records proper, May 18. Along with the new album, the Massachusetts band is going to be touring like crazy in both North America and Europe, with the inevitable stint at SxSW.
