Neutral Milk Hotel’s reunion tour will extend well beyond the five dates scheduled for later this year. In an interview with Pollstar, the band’s booking agent Jim Romeo said the band has a “much longer and fuller tour planned for 2014 that will span the globe.”
Marking their first shows together in 15 years, the band’s On Avery Island lineup (Jeff Mangum, Scott Spillane, Julian Koster, and Jeremy Barnes) will launch the tour in their hometown of Athens in late October. They’re then due in Asheville for an appearance at the Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit. Check out the current docket below.
Also, be sure to check out Sasha Geffen’s recent essay on the band’s reunion, in which she examines how it will impact their legacy.
