Elephant 6 Announce Holiday Surprise Tour!

On the heels of finding out that Jeff Mangum was performing music for the luckiest 75 people ever, my jaw hit the floor today on discovering that the Elephant 6 Collective will be planning another Holiday Surprise tour next year! To take place in February and March, (apparently "Holiday" in Elephant 6 world is a year round thing), the tour will have slightly different cast this time, most noticeably missing Robert Schneider of Apples in Stereo, members of Music Tapes, Nana Grizol, Olivia Tremor Control, The Gerbils, Elf Power, Pipes You See, Pipes You Don't, Circulatory System, Major Organ and The Adding Machine, and yes, Neutral Milk Hotel will be showing up this time. No confirmation of Jeff Mangum, but it has been confirmed that Neutral Milk Hotel music will be played which is still a great sign. Their tour back in 2008 was legendary and were else can see "The Opera House", "Glue", and "Majesty" all in the same show?! Without a doubt something you will regret not seeing for the rest of your life. Can't wait!
