We've been watching Jeff Mangum play Neutral Milk Hotel songs live for a bit now, which has been crazy and great enough, but now on the same date that Boards of Canada announce a new album, Neutral Milk Hotel have announced an actual reunion with an initial set of tour dates! Those dates are listed below...
And they promise: "More to come and love and respect to all who were there to see Jeff play over the last year!"
