Passion Pit confirm details of new album ‘Kindred’

US band will release third album in April

Passion Pit have confirmed details of their new album ‘Kindred’.

The album is expected to be released in April and a teaser trailer titled ‘That Flickering Light’s Just a Flame’ was posted on YouTube earlier this week. Watch the clip below.


News of ‘Kindred’ follows a demo of new song ‘Somewhere’ being shared by lead vocalist Michael Angelakos late last year. The demo was posted on SoundCloud under the name Eastern Shift. Kindred will be Passion Pit’s third album and their first since the 2012 release of ‘Gossamer’.

In 2012 Passion Pit were forced to cancel a number of tour dates when Angelakos decided he needed to take some time out in order to improve his ‘mental health’. Six shows in total were cancelled.
