Neon Trees Bio

Nov 05, 2012

US rock band Neon Trees have been climbing the charts the last couple of years since the release of their full length album Habits. Find out more about them in their Kidzworld Bio!

Newly Neon

Starting out in Provo, Utah vocalist and keyboardist Tyler Glenn and guitarist/vocalist Chris Allen started the band, eventually adding members Brandon Campbell (bass, guitar, vocals) and Elaine Bradley (percussion, drums, vocals.)

The band took their name from the way the trees lit up around a certain In-N-Out Burger sign. In 2006 they released an EP called Becoming Different People, and not long after Ronnie Vanucci, the drummer for The Killers, caught a live performance by the band at a small Las Vegas club since he and Campbell had once been in a ska band together. He ended up loving their sound and convinced the Killers to let Neon Trees open for The Killers for many of their tour dates in 2008, spurring the fledgling rockers onto greater success.

Habits

Vanucci helped the band sign to a major label, Mercury/Def Jam, and by 2010 they had released Habits, their first full length album. The lead single “Animal” climbed to the top of the Billboard charts and performed on all the late shows, gathering fans as they went. “Animal” was even featured in an episode of Glee!

Picture Show

The band’s latest album Picture Show was released in April 2012. The first single “Everybody Talks” was released earlier in the year. In August they performed the single on America’s Got Talent, and the second single off the album is “Lessons in Love,” a collaboration with DJ Kaskade.

The band went on tour with The Offspring this fall.

Check out "Animal" below!

I watched Maze Runner today. I gotta say, I was pretty impressed with it. I have watched the Hunger Games as well (this IS the movie section, after all). At this point, I prefer the Maze Runner (movie-wise), but both books were amazing too!

Honestly, that's quite hard. I've watched both movies and loved both of them equally. Maybe Divergent a teeny bit more. Still, Hunger Games and Divergent are both trilogies, so there's plenty to look forward to, movie wise!
