If you are the type of person whose heart has been lifted by the voice of Jeff Mangum, then you probably already have a Google Alert for Neutral Milk Hotel. And you may very well know this already. But, this is so exciting!

The band, which in less than one minute last week sold out shows at the 40 Watt Club (located in the band’s hometown of Athens, Georgia) has announced even more tourdates with the formative lineup of Mangum, Scott Spillane, Julian Koster and Jeremy Barnes.
The dates are as follows:
Neutral Milk Hotel 2013 Tour Dates:
10/11 – Baltimore, MD @ 2640 Space at St. John’s Church *
10/12 – Richmond, VA @ The National *
10/14 – Covington, KY @ Madison Theater *
10/15 – Urbana, IL @ The Canopy Club *
10/18 – Memphis, TN @ Minglewood Hall *
10/19 – Chattanooga, TN @ Track 29 *
10/20 – Birmingham, AL @ Iron City *
10/22 – Athens, GA @ 40 Watt Club *
10/23 – Athens, GA @ 40 Watt Club #
10/24 – Athens, GA @ Circulatory System
10/25 – Asheville, NC @ Thomas Wolfe Auditorium (Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit) # &
10/26 – Atlanta, GA @ The Tabernacle #
11/16 – Sydney, AU @ Harvest
11/17 – Brisbane, AU @ Harvest
11/28 – Taipei, TW @ Hostess Club Festival
12/01 – Tokyo, JP @ Hostess Club Festival

* = w/ Elf Power
# = w/ Half Japanese
& = w/ Daniel Johnston

 

The announcement comes as a bit of a surprise as Mangum only started playing solo again within the past few years, after nearly a full decade of silence.

Although we kind of want to keep this information to ourselves — being the aforementioned type of person who has a Google Alert — you can buy tickets here. Still no dates in the NYC, Boston or Philly regions, but here’s hoping to reporting about that soon.
