Neutral Milk Hotel Releases New Leg of Reunion Tour Dates
Neutral Milk Hotel has revealed dates for their last bit of touring – ever. They’ve been on a reunion tour for the past few years, but this is it. The band wrote on their website, “dear friends we love you but it’s time to say goodbye for the never ending now to announce that spring 2015 will be our last tour for the foreseeable future and so we extend our deepest gratitude to all the beautiful people who came to see us over the last year.” The tour dates kick off on April 13 in Greensboro, NC, at the Carolina Theatre of Greensboro. Next, they’ll head to Charlottesville, VA; Wilmington, DE; North Adams, MA; Portland, ME; Providence, RI; Buffalo, NY; Cleveland, OH; Kalamazoo, MI; Iowa City, IA; Springfield, MO; Oxford, MS; Clearwater, FL; Orlando, FL; Miami, FL; San Diego, CA; Eugene, OR; Seattle, WA; and many, many more.
Formed by singer, guitarist, and songwriter Jeff Mangum in the late 1980s, Neutral Milk Hotel’s experimental indie sound has been adored by critics and cult fans alike. The band’s best-known album, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, did not meet commercial success at the time of its release in 1998, though since it has gone on to sell over 300,000 copies and remains a staple on “must-have” list for many music industry publications. The group disbanded in 1999 after Mangum suffered a nervous breakdown.
