Neon Trees' "Pop Psychology" (11/21/14)
It's safe to say that 2014 will be remembered by Neon Trees as one busy year.
It all started back on January 10, when Neon Trees' third studio album was announced. The first single, titled "Sleeping with a Friend," was quickly released for digital download. Not even two weeks later, promotion ramped up when the band performed the single on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno." By the end of February, the cut had been pushed to radio by both Mercury and Island Records.
The aforementioned album, "Pop Psychology," bowed on April 22nd. It is said to be based on and is the 'cathartic product' of lead singer Tyler Glenn's therapy sessions. Glenn said he started seeing a therapist after canceling some tour dates in 2012, and was trying to find himself mentally and figure out who he was. He was quoted as saying, "At moments there's a cry for help and sadness… But I think it's a real fun pop record at the heart of it with a message too."
In addition to "Sleeping with a Friend," the album spawned three more singles: "I Love You (But I Hate Your Friends)," "Voices in the Halls," and "First Things First."
While Neon Trees had planned to tour heavily in support of its newest work, they were forced to postpone some dates due to health issues of bassist Branden Campbell, who underwent open-heart surgery for a valve replacement. Doctors deemed the band's schedule too intense for Campbell and advised him to slow down, though he wouldn't let Neon Trees cancel its entire tour.
Neon Trees recently joined forces with Lady Antebellum, Better than Ezra, 311, Fitz and the Tantrums and more to release the song "Must Be Christmas." A portion of the proceeds from each sale of the song will go to nonprofit MusiCares.
Neon Trees Light Up the Dance-Punk Movement (Created April 17, 2013)
Current authors of the dance-punk movement, the Neon Trees have their roots in California -- but their feet were firmly planed on the ground in Utah when they broke into the big time.
Featuring vocalist/keyboardist Tyler Glenn, guitarist Chris Allen, bassist Branden Campbell and drummer/vocalist Elaine Bradley, the band honed its sound at local venues in the Golden State before their big break in 2008. It was then that the Neon Trees were hand picked as the opening act for the Killers' North American tour. By 2009, they had a deal with Mercury Records and were also voted 2009's Band of the Year by Salt Lake City Weekly. Talk about a fast-track to the top!
The group's debut album, "Habits," arrived in early 2010. Their first big hit was "Lessons in Love (All Day and All Night," and a guitar-heavy cut of the song also appears on the band's latest album "Picture Show." In December 2012, their hit single "Everybody Talks" was used in promos for the new series "The Love Machine," and later featured in the movie "American Pie: Reunion."
Neon Trees recently wrapped up a world tour with Maroon 5 and Owl City. The trek was a 31-date run that kicked off February 13 in Columbus, Ohio and ran through April 6. The final show played to a sold out crowd at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. Glenn was singled out for his impressive vocal performance and eccentric dance moves, and will take that show on the road when the band visits Australia in May.
