Passion Pit Announces Manners 10th Anniversary Tour

A Cathartic Moment for Founding Member and Frontman Michael Angelakos



Passion Pit has confirmed 2019 tour dates to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of their breakthrough debut album, Manners.

For founding member and frontman Michael Angelakos, the tour marks a cathartic moment: "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."  Read Angelakos' commentary, below.

The Manners 10th Anniversary tour will allow Angelakos to revisit a beloved Passion Pit collection that he says "seemed to play back like an audible dream journal I can't even remember writing." Upon the album's release, AllMusic praised, "...thanks to the meticulous production values, the insane catchiness of the hooks, and the pure and true emotional underpinnings below all the gloss, the album is a total success of both sound and vision."

Michael Angelakos' commentary about the 10th anniversary of Manners: "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."


Ticket pre-sales are underway, with general on-sale set for February 8th at 10am local time.
