This morning, the world got its first legitimate listen to Gossamer, Passion Pit’s new record. That good news is tempered this afternoon, as the band’s lead singer Michael Angelakos is canceling their pre-Lolla summer dates due to some “mental health” issues. He posted this note of explanation:
Via Passion Pit’s site:
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.
