15 years after their last shows, Neutral Milk Hotel are going to reunite for a 2013 tour.
You read that correctly! According to Pitchfork, the touring lineup will comprise of Jeff Mangum, Scott Spillane, Julian Koster and Jeremy Barnes.
Formed in the 1988, the band went on hiatus ten years later, after the acclaimed In The Aeroplane Over the Sea and the album support tour.
A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to the charity Children of the Blue Sky.
Of course, Mangum couldn’t announce something so big without including something strange and cryptic, in this note on the NMH website:
