Sir Sly’s sophomore album, Don't You Worry, Honey, broke the silence, revealing events that have troubled lead singer Landon Jacobs since the band’s first album You Haunt Me. The indie-pop group, based in Los Angeles, stopped at Pittsburgh’s The Club at Stage AE on Sun., July 16.

On stage, Jacobs shared his story of the last three years that caused the band’s withdrawal from the music scene: He divorced his wife and lost his mother to brain cancer, resulting in a loss of his faith. Band members Jason Suwito and Hayden Coplen showed support to Landon on stage, as he moved the crowd to tears with a memorial speech, followed by the song, “Oh Mama." After that, the group brightened the mood, reveling in triumph over tribulation, with their breakout hit, “Gold.”

Here are a few photo highlights from the show:
