A new round of gold and platinum certifications has been announced by the Recording Industry Association of America, and a couple of rock stars made the list.
Passion Pit scored their first gold song certification for “Take a Walk” from 2012’s Gossamer for selling more than 500,000 copies. In addition, Of Monsters and Men got their first double-platinum single award -- for more than two million sales -- for “Little Talks,” the first single from the band’s debut studio album, My Head Is an Animal .
Both bands are currently out on touring promoting their respective albums. The next place you’ll be able to see Passion Pit will be at the Sweetlife Music and Food Festival on May 11 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD. Of Monsters and Men will kick off the next leg of their tour the next day at the Orpheum Theater in Vancouver, BC.
