Neutral Milk Hotel Add Winter Tour Dates

East coasters, rejoice. Indie rock royalty Neutral Milk Hotel have just added a ton of new dates to their tour, including multiple nights in New York City, Boston, Pennsylvania, Canada, and more southern states. Jeff Mangum, Scott Spillane, Julian Koster, and Jeremy Barnes will all be present for the month-long stretch of shows this upcoming winter.

Seriously, let’s take a moment to thank the heavens that the “more to come” announcement has now been fulfilled. Now check your local venue to see when tickets get on sale, because these will sell out immediately.

Neutral Milk Hotel Tour To Be Full International Tour Through 2014

Well, maybe we won’t have to travel south. The announcement earlier this week of a Neutral Milk Hotel reunion had a small indication there would be more dates, saying there was “more to come,” but it was hard to say for sure, as the announcement also included the quote “…and of water course womb rume is a wandering the welkin woman…” Point being, it’s hard to decipher old Elephant 6 messages.

Pollstar, the standard for music industry touring data, got a quote out of NMH’s long time booking agent Jim Romeo of Ground Control Touring, who said …

HOLY SH!T: Neutral Milk Hotel Reunite For Brief Tour

Wow. I want to say wow times a thousand. A few short years ago, I never would’ve expected Jeff Mangum to come out of his hiding away, forever living on as some indie rock myth. Yet, it’s 2013, and I’ve got to see him perform as a solo artist twice. Each time it left me holding out hope that I would one day get to see Neutral Milk Hotel perform in full.

Well, 2013 is a year to be lived. Neutral Milk Hotel will be reuniting for five shows. That’s a pretty lame tour, overall. But I don’t care. You …

Jeff Mangum (Neutral Milk Hotel) Extends Solo Tour, Will Continue Touring

When Jeff Mangum first announced his 2013 tour, it was widely thought to be his final tour ever. After all, his 2012 tour was his first real series of shows since Neutral Milk Hotel was still a band (I’m excluding festival one-offs).  A message with new tour dates has been released on his website that’s worded in such a quirky way, you have to think Jeff is behind it (although it is signed Artoria Gibbons).

It reads “dear friends,

with mouth music the meaning seems to say that there are rumors going round that that this is to be

WATCH: Jeff Mangum (Neutral Milk Hotel) And Guy Picciotto (Fugazi) – “Sign The Dotted Line” (The Tall Dwarfs Cover)

Jeff Mangum has played for the Occupy Wall Street movement many times; his original return to performing was a spontaneous performance in New York City. He lives in the city now, after all. Guy Picciotto has been more of a producer than a band member since Fugazi‘s hiatus. However, the two independent legends joined together to cover a song originally by The Tall Dwarfs, “Sign The Dotted Line”.

Jeff Mangum (Of Neutral Milk Hotel) Announces More Tour Dates

Jeff Mangum, songwriter and the brains behind Neutral Milk Hotel, is going on tour again. I was lucky enough to get to see him last time, and I’ll definitely be seeing him this time again. The indie legend has also played for the Occupy Wall Street crowds (remember when that was a cool thing to do?), and released a full Neutral Milk Hotel box set, which you can buy here.

Speculation seems to think its unlikely Jeff will ever do another album or full band tour, but because strange things happen (like Dave Grohl rejoining Queens of

Jeff Mangum returns to the stage (seriously!)

If you love indie music in any way, shape, or form then you most likely know the name Jeff Mangum better than that of members of your extended family Mangum, the mastermind behind Neutral Milk Hotel, has been infamously silent on the music scene for many years, until now. According to sources, Mangum performed a secret show last night in Brooklyn for about 75 people and performed 10 NMH songs. Click here to audio of five songs from Mangum’s performance. No information has been released to say or even hint that this performance will lead to more shows or another album, but it’s something and that’s more than fans have had for awhile.
