The duo has since released their debut EP "Hello" and racked up over a half of a billion views for their videos.
Neon Trees have SoCal roots, but the band came together eight years ago when Tyler and his neighbor, guitarist Chris Allen, relocated to Provo, Utah, and hooked up with Elaine Bradley (drums) and bassist Branden Campbell. Their new album Picture Show was released this past April and features the hit "Everybody Talks" as well as "Lessons in Love, (All Day, All Night) which is a collaboration with Kaskade. Concerning the album Tyler says: "When we started working on Picture Show I discovered I'd become fearless," Tyler continues ... "I love who our audience is; we don't need to be anything other than who we are. That was an incredible realization. It freed us up. We're unconstrained. We're bolder." Neon Trees will be hitting the road in February supporting Maroon 5.
