Revisit a pair of singles off Manners:
The Manners anniversary tour follows the 2017 Passion Pit album, Tremendous Sea of Love, which Angelakos supported with a tour last year. The frontman, who’s long been open and honest about his struggles with bipolar disorder and depression, later explained to me that, despite wanting to take a step back from the road, he decided to do the tour because he needed the money to cover his medical costs.
In 2017, Angelakos launched The Wishart Group, an advocacy company whose mission is to support musicians by providing them with legal, educational, and healthcare services.
