Neon Trees is a rock band from Provo, UT that became known in late 2008 when they were chosen as openers for several of The Killers’ North American tour dates. After the wide national exposure and thanks to The Killers, Neon Trees was signed by Mercury Records in early 2009. Also in ‘09, the group was voted Band of the Year in 2009 by City Weekly, a popular Salt Lake City publication. Although they had several prior independent releases, the band released its debut album entitled “Habits” via Mercury/Def Jam in March 2010 with “Animal” as its lead single.
The band performed “Animal” during appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Tonight Show. Throughout the Spring of 2010 the band opened for the 30 Seconds To Mars tour Into The Wild.
Neon Trees are headlining the summer 2010 Bang The Gong Tour with Paper Tongues and Civil Twilight.
