Pits drop gig due to ‘health’ is­sues

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY LIVE’N’LOUD -

Pit have can­celled a string of shows in the US fol­low­ing a state­ment from front­man Michael An­ge­lakos, in which he said he needs a break to im­prove his ‘‘men­tal health’’. The elec­tro pop band are due to re­lease their sec­ond al­bum Gos­samer on July 23, ahead of head­lin­ing the Park­life fes­ti­val tour across Aus­tralia in Septem­ber. While a state­ment on Pas­sion Pit’s web­site said the five-piece will re­sume tour­ing in Au­gust, the news will be a con­cern to their Aus­tralian fans. An­ge­lakos has apol­o­gised for can­celling the July dates, in­clud­ing shows in New York and Chicago, but said tak­ing ex­tended time out was a nec­es­sary step. ‘‘In or­der for me to en­sure that there will be no fur­ther dis­rup­tions, I am go­ing to take the time to work on im­prov­ing my men­tal health,’’ a state­ment from An­ge­lakos read.

The al­bum Gos­samer is Triple J’s fea­tured al­bum this week with the sec­ond sin­gle, I’ll Be Al­right on heavy ro­ta­tion.

The Pre­sets, Plan B, Jus­tice and Tame Im­pala play Park­life at the City Botanic Gar­dens and River­stage, Bris­bane, on Septem­ber 29.
