The video for Passion Pit’s “Lifted Up (1985),” the first track from the highly-anticipated forthcoming album Kindred, debuts today. Watch the video, with concept by Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos and directed by Phil Andelman, here. Kindred is out April 21 on Columbia Records.


The band is fresh from a string of shows at SXSW, the worldwide live debut of Kindred. Of the shows, the Austin American Statesman’s Austin 360 says, “All hail Michael Angelakos, king of the electropop rock stars…the Massachusetts band’s still got some kind of lightning in a bleepy-bloopy bottle,” while The Philadelphia Inquirer praises, “musically effusive, and catchy as ever.”

In celebration of the release of Kindred the band will tour North America this spring, playing intimate venues in the U.S. and Canada. The band will make stops including Big Guava Music Festival, Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre, two nights at Washington D.C.’s 9:30 Club and many more. Tickets are available now via
