Earlier this week Neutral Milk Hotel announced their first shows together in 15 years, with the addition that there was “more to come.” Apparently, there’s a lot more to come.
In an interview with Pollstar, Neutral Milk Hotel’s booking agent, Jim Romeo of Ground Control Touring, said that there will be an international tour in 2014, as well as more shows to be announced soon.
“People should know that they shouldn’t get discouraged if they don’t get tickets to these few shows,” he said. “There will be some more fall shows announced soon and a much longer and fuller tour planned for 2014 that will span the globe.”
Neutral Milk Hotel took an extended break after releasing their 1998 album In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, which is only now ending this year. Since 2010, Jeff Mangum has been playing solo shows, but this will mark the first time since the ’90s that the full band is playing together.
