Nashville-residing Passion Pit fans just can't catch a break. You may recall that the Pit canceled their scheduled appearance at Vanderbilt's 2010 Rights of Spring — though they did indeed make it up to Vandy students later that year. Earlier today, the Massachusetts-based electro-pop outfit announced via a post on their website that they would be canceling six upcoming shows, tonight's appearance at Marathon Music Works in Nashville among them. Frontman Michael Angelakos noted that he'll be taking the time off to "work on improving [his] mental health." The full message:

Hello all,

On behalf of the band and myself, I would like to greatly apologize for the show cancelations. In order for me to ensure that there will be no further disruptions, I am going to take the time to work on improving my mental health. For now, I'd like to thank all of our fans for their understanding. I hope to see all of you very soon in a much different light.

The tour page on our website currently reflects all upcoming tour dates.

With love,
Michael

Bummer news, for sure, and we wish Angelakos & Co. the best. But how about some awesome news for fans of openers Future Islands? Future Islands have picked up a last-minute show at Exit/In — it will be free, and local Cream fave Tristen (fresh off of tour — welcome home, T-Bone) will open. Show starts at 9 p.m. The folks from Marathon issued a release with the pertinent Passion Pit refund info and all that. See it after the jump.

Due to circumstances out of our control, the Passion Pit show on Monday, July 16th at Marathon Music Works is cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. All tickets may be refunded at the point of purchase. Online sales will be automatically refunded to your credit card.

Marathon Music Works is presenting a FREE SHOW tonight with Future Islands (direct support for Passion Pit) and Tristen at Exit/In.

Doors at 8pm. Show starts at 9pm.

If you purchased your tickets at the box office please stop by to get a refund. Our box office is open from 12pm - 1pm, Monday through Friday.

Note: We can only refund tickets at the box office if you bought your tickets at the box office. All online orders will be refunded to your credit card.

We wish Passion Pit the very best! Thanks for supporting Marathon Music Works and we hope to see you at Exit/In tonight!
