One of the biggest names in rock music in 2009 was Passion Pit. After that banner year filled with critical accolades and major festival appearances, the Boston-area electronic crew has announced a full spring tour for 2010.

The trek kicks off March 26 at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, FL, with a total of 19 concerts scheduled through May 1 at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, ME. Other scheduled stops include April 2 at Confress Theater in Chicago, IL; April 8 at In the Venue in Salt Lake City, UT; and April 15 at Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, CA.

As the calendar currently stands, the band’s Canadian fans can only look forward to a single performance north of the border. Passion Pit is booked for an April 11 concert at Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, BC.

Passion Pit is touring in support of its debut record, “Manners,” released in May 2009. The album peaked at No. 51 on the Billboard 200, impressive for the debut album from a band on an independent label. The band backed the release with an equally impressive series of summer festival performances, including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits.

At the start of this year, the band completed a brief slate of U.S. dates, mainly comprised of a January 8-10 stand at Terminal 5 in New York, NY. Later this week, Passion Pit will begin a tour of Australia, to be followed by shows in Japan and Europe.
