The cult band have been on hiatus since their last studio album – 1998’s ‘In The Aeroplane Over The Sea’ and its subsequent tour. 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.
The touring line-up of the band will consist of Mangum, Scott Spillane, Julian Koster and Jeremy Barnes.
Neutral Milk Hotel will play:
Dublin Vicar Street (May 16, 2014)
Manchester Albert Hall (18)
Glasgow Barrowland (19)
London Roundhouse (21)
