Introducing Neon Trees presenting you this acoustic version of Justin Bieber's "Baby".
Neon Trees is an American alternative rock band from Provo, Utah with origins in Murrieta, California. The band 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.
Neon Trees spent three consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart with their debut album Habits, including their RIAA Platinum #1 Alternative and #1 Hot AC debut single “Animal,” which was recently featured on FOX’s hit show GLEE! Neon Trees are gearing up for their first major tour of the spring, heading out for three weeks of shows with My Chemical Romance.
In support of the upcoming tour, Neon Trees – named Best New Band of 2010 by the influential website absolutepunk.net – is set to release their new single this week, “Your Surrender,” impacting at all Pop, Hot AC and Alternative radio formats. “Your Surrender” builds on the success of “Animal,” which also hit Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart; and “1983” which rose to #12 on the Alternative chart. In addition, Neon Trees EP live from SXSW is now available on iTunes!
“Your Surrender” and “1983” will be featured in the movie soundtrack for Prom, the new drama-comedy from Walt Disney Pictures, opening April 29th. In the movie, several intersecting stories unfold at one high school as the big dance approaches; Prom portrays the precarious passage from high school to independence as some relationships unravel and others ignite. Neon Trees recently shot the video in Los Angeles for “Your Surrender” with the emerging ensemble cast of the movie. “Your Surrender” will be utilized in the TV spots for Prom; while “1983” will be used in the trailers.
Meanwhile, Neon Trees looks ahead to their tour with My Chemical Romance, beginning April 1st at Roseland Theatre in Portland, Oregon, working its way across North America to Terminal 5 in New York City on April 23rd. (Please see complete itinerary below.) Neon Trees was recently in New York (in January) for a performance on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, followed by their first headlining date at prestigious Webster Hall. Afterward, they played a month of European concerts in Germany, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Paris, Brussels, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and London, touring in support of the European release of Habits on February 21st.
March 23rd will mark the one-year anniversary of the release of Habits, currently in its 52nd week on the Heatseekers chart. Neon Trees – Tyler Glenn (lead vocals, keyboards), Chris Allen (guitars), Branden Campbell (bass), Elaine Bradley (drums, vocals) – was featured on USA Today’s influential “On The Verge” page (“Maximum Wattage Beamed Out Of Provo, Utah”). They were also named Artist Of The Week at RollingStone.com, which raved: “Habits is filled with Eighties pop meshed with bombastic alt-rock choruses – like the Killers playing backup for Duran Duran. ‘Your Surrender’ is a U2-style sing-along, ‘1983’ is a bratty dose of keyboard-driven pop punk and Hot 100 single ‘Animal’ is an irresistibly catchy lovesick dance tune.”
Neon Trees is currently on-touring with Chemical Romance.
