Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos gives a frank interview to Pitchfork about being bi-polar, his music, and influences. In the course of the four-hour discussion this tidbit was dropped in the interview.
His music will be featured as part of the soundtrack to the final installment of the Twilight film series later this year. (He’s hoping to convince Kristen Stewart to star in a future Passion Pit video, too.) Angelakos turned 25 in May, and he’s been so busy that, in the week leading up to it, he forgot what day his birthday was.
