About the Artist

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. Their first single "Animal" has climbed to #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Alternative Rock Chart. Formed initially by neighbors Tyler Glenn (vocals, keyboards) and Chris Allen (guitar), the band made its first home in Provo, eventually adding Branden Campbell (bass guitar, vocals) and Elaine Bradley (drums, percussion, vocals) to the lineup. David Charles also plays with the band as touring guitarist. They first started playing under the name Neon Trees in late 2005 with five original members. The band's name originates from the lighted trees(like the neon tutu's) on the In-N-Out Burger signs, that inspired Tyler Glenn to come up with the name.
