, Staff

After a relatively quiet 2011, Passion Pit are making plans for a loud 2012. The band will end its rest and return to the road this spring for a tour that includes a homecoming performance at Boston’s Bank of America Pavilion on Friday, June 22. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $24.50 to $34.50, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

Other summer dates on the band’s itinerary include a headlining performance at The Governors Ball festival in New York City and a co-headlining date with Justice at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado.

Prior to the summer dates, Passion Pit will play a pair of intimate New England shows. The band will perform at the Pearl Street Nightclub in Northampton, Massachusetts on April 16 and the State Theatre in Portland, Maine on April 17.

Though no official announcement has been made, fans can expect to hear some new songs at the upcoming shows as Passion Pit is widely expect to release their highly anticipated sophomore album this year. The band’s 2009 debut album Manners featured hits “Little Secrets” and “The Reeling”, while the band’s breakthrough came courtesy of “Sleepyhead” off their 2008 EP Chuck of Change.
