Star 99.9. Today’s Best Mix

Today*s Star: Neon Trees

Neon Trees are back with a brand new single! Before we get into that let's get a little background info on this fun foursome. They are from California but made Provo, Utah their home. Lead singer Tyler and guitarist Chris grew up together, they were actually neighbors in Cali. Tyler came up with the name Neon Trees from the lighted trees on the In-N-Out Burger sign. (If you have never had the deliciousness that is an In-N-Out Burger make a trip out's worth it!) The band hit mainstream after the release of their song "Animals" in 2010.

Fun facts about the band: The cast of Glee covered two of their biggest hits; Animals and Everybody Talks.

They opened up shows for The Killers, Duran Duran and Panic! At the Disco, and I love that they have a female on drums! Her name is Elaine Bradley and she totally rocks! Neon Trees were one of the last musical guests for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Neon Trees have a new album dropping April 22nd and will be in town to play a show at the Oakdale Theatre July 10th! Below is a rare, awesome acoustic performance of their hit "Animals" what do ya think?
