J-14 is scouting out the hottest bands around... and this week's pick is Neon Trees!
Here are five things you need to know about Neon Trees, whose album Habits, drops tomorrow, March 16!
Singer Tyler Glenn is vegan, but he was sitting in an In-N-Out Burger during high school and really liked the neon palm trees, so he thought he'd save the name for a band one day.
Since Tyler hopes to follow in Lady Gaga's creative footsteps, it's no surprise that he describes the music on Habits as "fun." "We want to deliver music that is solid and people can sing along to," he says.
Neon Trees will be supporting 30 Seconds to Mars and Mute Math on tour starting April 9 in Las Vegas, NV. Check out tour dates here.
The group is based in Provo, Utah, but none of the members are originally from the Salt Lake City area. Tyler Glenn and guitarist Chris Allen are from Southern California, bassist Branden Campbell is from Las Vegas, and drummer Elaine Bradley is from Chicago.
Nick Jonas is one of their biggest fans! "Animal - Neon Trees. Awesome," Nick tweeted.
