Neutral Milk Hotel have added an additional pair of live dates to their UK and Irish tour schedule.
The band, who will play shows in Belfast, Dublin, Manchester, Glasgow and London in May, have today (March 21) announced further gigs in August with Bexhill and Leeds dates added to fit in around an appearance at Green Man festival in Wales on August 17.

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.
