Pitchfork is reporting as much. Over the last couple of years reclusive Neutral Milk Hotel mastermind/all-around musical genius Jeff Mangum has been popping up for appearances here and there (Michael and I saw him do a couple of songs at an Elephant 6 show in Columbus). According to Pitchfork Media, a real tour may be on the way:
[Spokesman Ben] Goldberg sent over a statement today, saying that Mangum is “planning some additional performances to start in the fall of 2011. The goal will be to play more American shows, as well as get over to Europe.”
Mangum is already confirmed to play an ATP festival in New Jersey in October, but it sounds like that could just be the start of something more.
