Neon Trees formed in Utah in 2005 by lead vocalist Tyler Glenn and guitarist Chris Allen. They were first noticed by Ronnie Vannucci of The Killers (side note: Vannucci recently mastered his solo album at The Lodge titled Big Talk) and helped them get signed to Mercury Records in 2008. They eventually released their debut full length album "Habits" in 2010 and the album's lead single "Animal" went double platinum, reaching #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and an instant radio hit.
With "Picture Show" the band has managed to create an album loaded with the catchiest foot tapping synth hooks pop music could possibly ask for (featuring collaborations Kaskade). The album debuted at #17 on Billboard Top 200 Albums and "Everybody Talks" is currently #9 on Billboard's Alternative Top 20 Songs. Amazing!
