Passion Pit signs to Frenchkiss


DOWNLOAD: Passion Pit, "Sleepyhead" (mp3)

The Hold Steady, the Apes, the Fatal Flying Guiloteens, and . . . PASSION PIT? Hellz yeah -- your/our fave upstart Boston band just signed to Frenchkiss, who'll release the band's new EP, Chuck of Change, in September. Hype machine begins in August, when the Pit take on the traditional hipster-converting residency at Piano's. Finally, someone who deserves this shit.

The new EP will be 8 songs, a half-dozen of them new, with a couple (including the one above) tacked on from their demos.

Also nice of them to shout out their win in the 2008 Best Music Poll, which got them the opening slot on our Death Cab gig at the Pavilion, which in turn we happen to have a little video of:
