Neon Trees news

Having seen the band live several times, I really look forward to the new material...
Multi-platinum pop/rock group Neon Trees have announced their third studio album, Pop Psychology, will be released on April 22 though Island Def Jam. First single "Sleeping With A Friend" is now available to purchase on iTunes. 

Pop Psychology was recorded throughout 2013 in Cabo San Lucas, Los Angeles, and Provo and was produced and mixed by Tim Pagnotta, who also produced the band's hits "Animal" and "Everybody Talks."

Singer Tyler Glenn says of Pop Psychology, "The album is so special to me personally because it basically started from a place where I was broken and uninterested in anything to do with music. I had reached a breaking point. For me this record is a celebration, a cry for help, an admission of self doubt, and a revelation of self acceptance.  At the very least, it's a pop record, and to me the purest example of the sound of Neon Trees."

Neon Trees will kick off 2014 with several confirmed television appearances. On Jan. 16, the band will return to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon followed by a performance the next morning on TODAY. On Jan. 22, they'll return to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. This spring Neon Trees will hit the road for a headlining North American tour. Dates to be announced shortly.

Pop Psychology is the follow up to band's 2012 release Picture Show which debuted at #17 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart and featured the RIAA platinum single "Everybody Talks" which cracked the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Neon Trees' debut album, Habits, was released in 2010 and featured the platinum smash single "Animal". The band has previously toured with Taylor Swift, The Killers, Maroon 5, Duran Duran, Flaming Lips, My Chemical Romance, among others.

From Provo, Utah, Neon Trees is Tyler Glenn (lead vocals, keys) Chris Allen (guitars), Branden Campbell (bass), and Elaine Bradley (drums, vocals).
