(February 24, 2010 – New York, NY) After taking a monster bite out of Alternative radio across the country, “Animal,” the first single from Mercury Records group Neon Trees, went to #1 on the Alternative Specialty Chart in its debut week, with top-tier airplay reports pouring in from alternative rock stations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit, Salt Lake City, San Diego, Kansas City, Columbus, Milwaukee, Portland and New York City, to name a few.  


       “Animal,” up for sale at all digital retailers this week, is Neon Trees’ lead track from their debut album HABITS, set for March 16th release. HABITS is produced by the band’s friend, singer/guitarist Tim Pagnotta.

        
Named in the Alternative Press roster of “Bands To Watch In 2010,” Neon Trees will receive maximum exposure in the weeks leading up to the HABITS album release, starting on January 31st, when “Animal” is featured on the latest episode of VH1’s new series, Secrets of Aspen; and then on March 16th, when it will be heard on the CW’s Melrose Place.  The night before, on March 15th, the CW’s Life Unexpected will feature another album track, “1983.”

        
The video for “Animal” – added on mtvU – shows off Neon Trees’ affinity for western plains friends (and fellow Island Def Jam label mates) the Killers.  It was Las Vegas band the Killers who pulled Neon Trees out of obscurity in Provo, Utah, and exposed them to tens of thousands of new fans when they took them on tour!

        
Bicoastal audiences caught their first glimpse of Neon Trees earlier when they made their New York City premiere at Mercury Lounge – followed by dates with Har Mar Superstar at Spaceland (Club NME) in Los Angeles and the Rickshaw Stop (Popscene) in San Francisco.  In between, Neon Trees played back home at the 4th anniversary bash of Provo’s Velour Live Music Gallery.  Details on Neon Trees at this year’s SXSW (South By Southwest) Interactive Conference & Festivals (March 12th-21st) will be announced shortly.

       
Neon Trees Tyler Glenn (lead vocals, keyboards), Chris Allen (guitars), Branden Campbell (bass), and Elaine Bradley (drums, vocals) – has its roots in Southern California, where Tyler and Chris were neighbors.  When Chris moved to Provo to attend college, Tyler followed him, and they were soon joined by Branden and Elaine.

       
HABITS is a blast of timeless rock energy and spirit that wouldn’t sound out of place at any point from ’60s garage-rock to 2010 dance rock and beyond.  “Music is a sacred act of communion for me, offering hope and love,” says Tyler. “That’s the heart of this band.”  Adds Chris, “We just want to share that feeling we got from the bands that inspired us, and then we want to pass the torch.”  For more information go to www.NeonTrees.com.
