Like two beings of pure energy colliding into each other, causing a blinding flash of white light, Passion Pit and Matt & Kim have gotten together to go on a North American tour this coming February. Which is good, because the sheer amount of energy produced by the two giddy-but-in-kind-of-a-nervous-way groups should be able to heat thousands of homes during this cold winter. All citizens benefit from this tour. Even if, you know, you’re not really into Passion Pit or Matt & Kim.
Passion Pit will be headlining the dates, making this the band’s largest headlining tour yet. Matt & Kim will open every date, while probably also being on-hand to pep talk Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos. Both bands released a new record earlier in the year, with Passion Pit having put out Gossamer (TMT Review) in the summer and Matt & Kim having released Lightning just last month.
