Passion Pit add more dates just so that I'll write a new story about them

Not content with their place in our news archives, the assholes in Passion Pit have literally added more fall dates to their already-pretty-giant tour in support of their new album Gossamer just so that we’d re-up them in our delicious whole grain news feed. Psssssht. Typical buzz-bin SEO mini-neuver from another fuzz-fizzling blogo-band biz-trending synthpop humpers, am I right? I don’t know who these guys think they’re dealing with, or why they’re such super-massive, wantonly obsessive fans of Tiny Mix Tapes, but they’re in for it now… because now I want some wantons. Hang on…

Okay, I’m back. Anyway, also, what exactly goes on inside a passion pit, anyway? It sounds kind of some impulsive group sex thing. Is this really something we should be condoning on our website? It’s like every time we say or type this band’s name, we’re justifying some giant (albeit consensual) gang bang of slop-slippy group-grope of hot-lipped, hard-nipp’ed, ecstasy-vibing, monogamy-threatening, animalistic mysteri-sex. And I don’t know if I like the sound of all those words when they’re said together in comedic succession like that. Do you?
