Neutral Milk Hotel announce first reunion dates in 15 years

Posted on

Neutral Milk Hotel

Hold on to your flannels, kids: revered indie-rock band Neutral Milk Hotel is reuniting for the first time in fifteen years.

The Athens, GA, group behind 1998’s seminal In the Aeroplane Over the Sea just announced a small string of tour dates this fall on their official web site. And while the band’s elusive leader Jeff Mangum has been trotting out NMH songs during his handful of shows in recent years, this new outing will bring together the full NMH crew, including Jeremy Barnes, Scott Spillane, and Julian Koster, playing together for the first time since the year  Aeroplane was released.

Only a few dates have been set so far, but the band’s site teases that more will be announced soon — hopefully including one in Pawnee, for April Ludgate’s sake. As of now, though, you’ll be able to catch them at the following few dates:

10-22 Athens, GA – 40 Watt Club *

10-23 Athens, GA – 40 Watt Club #

10-25 Asheville, NC – Thomas Wolfe Auditorium #!

11-28 Taipei, Taiwan – Hostess Club Festival

12-01 Tokyo, Japan – Hostess Club Festival

* with Elf Power

# with Half Japanese

! with Daniel Johnston

Portions of concert proceeds will go towards the Children of the Blue Sky charity.
