After a lengthy hiatus (15 years since their last show), Neutral Milk Hotel is back – as in, yes, they are reuniting – and will be heading on tour before the end of the year. The lineup will include the same one that made music and performed post-1996, meaning that Jeff Mangum, Scott Spillane, Julian Koster, and Jeremy Barnes will be hitting up stages worldwide. Currently, there are only a few tour dates confirmed, but there will be “more to come” according their official website.

This also appeared on the band’s website:
