Passion Pit have announced that they will be heading out on a North American tour come this August. The band will be taking along the Joy Formidable for the entire tour, but also have Two Door Cinema Club and St. Lucia on selected dates.

Before beginning on their three-month trek around the United States and Canada, the band will begin with a couple of festival stops including Wisconsin’s Summer Set Music Festival, California’s First City Festival as well as a special, two-day stop in New York City at Pier 26.

For fans who purchased tickets to see them in February at Madison Square Garden, but could not attend due to a blizzard, Passion Pit will be offering  discounted tickets for Pier 26. The band have revealed that all tickets that are sold through the discounted price, will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Passion Pit’s last album, Gossamer, was released in July 2012 through Columbia Records, but just last week they released a pretty cool remix of Portugal. The Man’s “Purple, Yellow, Red and Blue.” The full schedule for the tour can be seen below.
