Hockey praise Passion Pit during T In The Park set

Band showcase their debut album to dance-friendly crowd

Hockey praise Passion Pit during T In The Park set
Hockey bigged up Passion Pit during their Red Bull Bedroom Jam Futures Stage gig at T In The Park today (July 12).

Singer Benjamin Grubin referenced the band - who play the same stage after Hockey - towards the end of their set.

"We're sticking around to watch Passion Pit after this," he said, while bassist Jeremy Reynolds added: "Yeah, we love those Passion Pit boys."

The Portland, Oregon band had earlier previewed a number of tracks from their soon-to-be released debut album 'Mind Chaos', including 'Learn To Lose' and 'Work'.

"Bye bye!" Grubin said near the end of the latter track (which the band opened their set with), joking to the audience as he walked to the back of the stage only to stop before exiting. Instead, he picked up a spare pair of drumsticks and joined drummer Anthony Stassi to finish the song.

The singer also seemed surprised by the amount of fans singing along with the band throughout the gig - particularly on the catchier numbers like 'Song Away'.

At one point he bemusedly asked a gaggle of girls in the front row, "You guys must have seen us before, right?!"

Single 'Too Fake' got the best response from the crowd, with most dancing and singing along with the band and many throwing their drinks in the air during the chorus.

"You're OK, thanks," he said after finishing the track to rapturous applause from the audience.
