About the Artist

Neon Trees is a rock band, from Provo, Utah, with origins in Temecula, California.

David Charles also plays with the band as touring keyboardist & guitarist. Although a well known band in Provo, the band didn't receive nationwide exposure until late 2008 when they were chosen as openers for several of The Killers' North American tour dates. Not long after, the band was signed by major record label Mercury Records and released their first full length album, Habits, in 2010. Their first single "Animal" has climbed to #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Alternative Rock Chart. All four members of Neon Trees are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
