Pop Psychology, the new album from multi-platinum group Neon Trees, debuts at #6 on The Billboard 200, marking the band's highest charting album to date. They reached #1 on the iTunes Alternative Album Chart and Top 5 in the Overall iTunes Album Chart.
The UK release of Pop Psychology will be 14th July 2014, through Virgin
On their third album Pop Psychology songs like Love In the 21st Century, Text Me In The Morning, I Love You, But I Hate Your Friends and first single Sleeping With A Friend capture the millennial concerns referenced in the titles and deliver them in impeccably shiny sonic packages, thanks to the band's performances and production by Glenn's long-time friend and songwriting collaborator Tim Pagnotta.
Style-wise, Glenn feels that Pop Psychology blends sounds from the quartet's previous two albums, 2010's guitar-pop-driven Habits and 2012's electro-fueled New Wave-inspired Picture Show. "I think this is the first record where we combine both and really sound like Neon Trees throughout the entire album," he says.
Neon Trees rose to fame in 2008 when they supported fellow Utah band The Killers and released their debut album Habits featuring platinum selling single Animal, peaking at No. 1 on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart and No. 2 on the Rock Songs chart. Animal was also featured on Glee and currently has over 20 million views on YouTube. Neon Trees' second album, Picture Show, which debuted at No. 17 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart, featured the platinum-selling Top 10 single Everybody Talks. They have toured with Duran Duran, Thirty Seconds To Mars, Panic! At The Disco and My Chemical Romance.
