Everything just keeps looking up for Boston's Passion Pit. The video for "Sleepyhead" just got aired on MTV2 last week amidst them wrapping up final sessions for their hotly anticipated full length which will drop next spring. MTV also said they were probably the biggest band at this year's CMJ conference as they packed the club at every performance they had.
The band now hopes to keep the clubs packed with their first tour of the New Year. The band will be playing in cities and venues they have yet to visit, so do check them out on their maiden voyage in to your town. All dates are with Cale Parks of Aloha fame and Paper Route, save for the two remaining dates on their 2008 calendar:
