Neon Trees is recording their sophomore album at Ocean Way Recording, following the smash success of their debut CD, “Habits.” The new as-yet-untitled album is being helmed by producer and bass player Justin Meldel-Johnsen, known for his work with Beck, Nine Inch Nails, and Garbage. Recorded by Greg Collins, the band is comprised of Christopher Allen, guitar; Branden Campbell, bass; Elaine Bradley, drums; and Tyler Glenn, vocals.
Neon Trees received nationwide exposure in late 2008 when they opened several North American tour dates for the rock band The Killers. Not long after, the band was signed by Mercury Records and released
their first full length album, “Habits,” in 2010. Their first single, “Animal,” climbed to #13 on the Billboard Hot 100, #1 on the Alternative rock chart, and received the 2011 Billboard Award for Best Alternative Song.
“Animal” was featured as the Free Single of the Week on iTunes in March 2010. The band performed the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show, Late Show with David Letterman, Live! with Regis & Kelly, and on TBS’ Conan. Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 selected “Animal” as his Spin Magazine Pick of the Week. The song has also been featured in a commercial for Las Vegas and remixed by popular American DJ, Kaskade. The group has also released a digital EP of four remixes of the song, one of which was done by vocalist Tyler Glenn.
The new album from Neon Trees is scheduled for release in the first quarter 2012 .
