Passion Pit Cancels Summer Tour Dates, Still Playing South Florida on October 23

Two weeks of tour dates have just been canceled by Passion Pit. And the reason: Frontman Michael Angelakos needs "to take the time to work on improving [his] mental health."

So far, most of the tour remains intact, including Passion Pit's South Florida show at the Hollywood ArtsPark on October 23. And hopefully, Michael will be doing better three months from now.

After the cut, see Michael's full announcement, the affected tour dates, and the video for the band's lead single, "Take a Walk" off new album Gossamer, out a week from tomorrow.
