About Neutral Milk Hotel
Formed by Jeff Mangum, Neutral Milk Hotel was one of the most original bands that the
90s indie movement produced. Known for their experimental sound, the band had their first release in 1994 with the EP, "Everything
Is", which was recorded on a four-track recorder, and carried the signature lo-fi sound that would later become synonymous
with Neutral Milk Hotel's music. Neutral Milk Hotel's first full-length album was released in 1996, and it includes tracks
like "You've Passed," "Naomi," and "Three Peaches." Neutral Milk Hotel followed up with their second album in 1998, "In the
Aeroplane Over the Sea," which became their most well-known and critically acclaimed album. Generating somewhat of a cult
following on the indie scene, the album has gone on to sell over 300,000 copies.
Shortly after their revered record
was released, Neutral Milk Hotel disbanded, but front man Jeff Mangum stayed active with various side projects, including
his contributions toward the album, "Major Organ and the Adding Machine." Jeff Mangum also released an album called "Orange
Twin Field Works: Volume 1," which consisted of various Bulgarian folk songs, and he released a live album called "Live at
Jittery Joe's." Mangum also appeared on a number of radio shows throughout 2002.
By 2013, Neutral Milk Hotel had announced
that they were embarking on a reunion tour with the original lineup that recorded their famous album, "In the Aeroplane Over
the Sea," and the band has recently extended the tour to include concert dates in 2014. They are set to play all over, including
a variety of venues in the United States, and at several international locations as well.

Neutral Milk Hotel started to generate buzz with the release of their EP, "Everything Is," but it
was their second studio album, "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea" that really launched them to the next level. The album was
met with positive reviews in music publications, and indie fans all over fell in love with the album. Blending the lines between
punk, psychedelic rock, and pop, the album continues to remain relevant today. Even though it was released in 1998, it later
became one of the best-selling vinyl albums in 2008, proving that their enduring music has remained popular after all of these
years. Since the release of "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea," Neutral Milk Hotel has continued to be one of the most respected
indie bands, and fans couldn't be more thrilled that the band has extended their reunion tour.
