It’s been over a month since we’ve heard anything from Passion Pit, aside from them announcing a handful of tour dates, but now the band are back with a brand new music video.
The music video which was directed by Phil Andelman, features frontman Michael Angelakos in the ever ending crowds of people inside of a night club. The club has tons of strobe lights and glow sticks going on so you can feel like you’re actually part of the craziness going on inside those four walls.
Warning, the video contains a lot of strobe lights and glow sticks (since you know, it’s suppose to mimic a night club), so if you’re affected by either things, don’t watch it.
Kindred, the band’s upcoming new album, will be released on April 17 through Columbia Records. Pre-orders for the record are currently available on their website. For those who pre-order the album, they will receive instant downloads of both lead singles “Lifted Up (1985)” and “Where the Sky Hangs.”
After weeks of teasing fans with cryptic posts on social media and short, non-informative videos, Passion Pit have finally felt some pity for their followers and decided to release the first full track off of the upcoming new record, Kindred.
The new song is titled “Lifted Up (1985)” and can be streamed below in the video which features the cover art for Kindred in motion.
If the new video wasn’t enough of a gift, the band have also released the full track listing for the record as well as the release date. Kindred will be released on April 17 through Columbia Records.
Pre-orders for the record will begin tomorrow, Feb. 17. Those who pre-order the record early, will receive “Lifted Up” and “Where the Sky Hangs” as instant downloads.
Not too shabby for Monday.
