[Listen] Passion Pit - "Take A Walk"

It has been quite some time since Passion Pit released their debut album Manners, and, as previously reported, the Massachusetts outfit will return this summer with the release of Gossamer, the long awaited follow up to their 2009 debut. Today, the band let loose "Take A Walk," the first taste of the forthcoming LP, which they originally premiered live last year. The song carries many of the sounds that defined Manners, but still holds its own as a definite sign of development and progress for the band. Give it a listen below.

Gossamer is out on July 24th via Columbia Records. As well, the band has announced tour dates preceding and following the release of their sophomore LP, so check out their full tour itinerary after the jump.
