Passion Pit Announce “Manners” 10th Anniversary Tour

May U.S. Dates in Honor of Debut Album's Anniversary

Feb 05, 2019 Passion Pit Bookmark and Share

Wanna feel old? Well, Passion Pit‘s debut album, Manners, came out almost 10 years ago. Its exact anniversary is May 15 and in honor of that achievement the band led by Michael Angelakos is going out on tour this May to perform the album in its entirety. Check out the dates below and revisit our 2009 article on Passion Pit. Also stream the album below.

Angelakos, who has been very public about his mental health issues over the years, issued this statement about the tour: “One of the greatest challenges for me, has been attempting to listen back to Manners and not relive the terror, confusion, and euphoria that it was so vividly informed by. For most of my life, I’ve ignored or dismissed it as a type of coping mechanism. It always seemed to play back like an audible dream journal I can’t even remember writing. And, the years we spent touring in support of it were never easy, especially in the beginning, as though playing the songs every single night were a form of exposure therapy in front of an audience. Ten years later, Manners seems to finally feel like the moment that it was: a tectonic shift during the strangest, most defining year of my life. To me, and to many of the people closest to the project, Manners has always been the most deeply misunderstood Passion Pit album. Eleven years after I began writing it, and ten more struggling to comprehend it, it suddenly does not seem so frivolous or self-absorbed to celebrate Manners-to celebrate surviving it, to get another chance to shine a certain light on it, but without the fear and the pain that went into making it. I can’t think of a better way of doing so than performing it live, doing both the album and one of the most significant moments of my life, a healthy justice.”
