Neutral Milk Hotel planning world tour
Neutral Milk Hotel are reportedly planning a world tour for 2014.
The group, who have reunited after 15 years apart, recently announced a handful of US dates, as well as one each in Taiwan and Tokyo – but their booking agent has now stated that they will be playing further afield in the future.
Jim Romeo from Ground Control Touring told Pollstar: "Everyone is very excited which is great. People should know that they shouldn't get discouraged if they don't get tickets to these few shows, there will be some more fall shows announced soon and a much longer and fuller tour planned for 2014 that will span the globe."
The reunited band features the group's 'classic lineup' of Jeff Mangum, Scott Spillane, Julian Koster and Jeremy Barnes. Neutral Milk Hotel last released a new record in 1998, the acclaimed In The Aeroplane Over The Sea.
Aside from a 2001 live album and a 2002 album of Bulgarian music, the band have been keeping a low profile – although singer Jeff Mangum played a string of solo dates in 2010 and curated ATP at Butlins in Minehead in March last year (2012).
