I had to take a break from my study to post some very important news. Passion Pit are streaming their new album, Manners, on their myspace page. The 11 track debut album from the much loved electro-poppers is not officially released until 18th May (19th May in US).
So now fans can give it a listen a few days before they go out and buy it. And do go out and buy it – its one thing to illegally download music from bands that have already made their millions, but its another to do the same for a new artist. It’s not available on the Irish iTunes store yet (I’m assuming it will be next week), but I did find it on amazon.co.uk for £6.98.
I won’t have a chance to listen to it until the weekend, but I thought it would be better to let people know that it was being streamed and listen to it themselves.
If you don’t know already, we at The Clink love these guys, having written about them a lot. They are playing in The Academy on 3rd November (which of course we are all going to) and tickets are still available on Ticketmaster.
