(Newser) – The indie rock band Neutral Milk Hotel has effectively been broken up since 1998—but the group is about to tour again. Right now, Jeff Mangum et al are planning to start in the South (Asheville and Athens, Georgia) in October before heading to Taipei and Tokyo; just five dates have been announced thus far, but the band's website promises more will come, reports the Huffington Post.
