Neon Trees Show Us Heartbreak in “Songs I Can’t Listen To”

A month after releasing a brand new song, Neon Trees are back with the music video for “Songs I Can’t Listen To.”

Very much like the lyrics of the song, the music video tells the tale of a couple’s relationship from the beginning to the end. It begins with the couple, all happy and sitting on a hill listening to music (you known, the songs that will become the songs you can’t listen to) enjoying the beginning of this brand new relationship.

Then, it takes a turn for the worst, with them realizing it’s time to pull the plug on the relationship because of their constant arguing and fighting.

Check out the video below.

Neon Trees have yet to announce if this song will be featured on a potential new record or if it will remain a non-album single. The Utah-based band released their third studio album, Pop Psychology last year.

They also announced plans last month to head out on tour this Summer for their “An Intimate Night With Neon Trees” Tour. The trek will begin this Saturday, June 6, at the Showbox in Seattle and wrap up on July 26 at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston.

Complete list of tour dates can be seen here.

Neon Trees Give Us a “Song We [I] Can’t Listen To”

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Utah’s Neon Trees, but now, they have returned with a brand new song.

After dropping hints on social media about a brand new song coming out really soon, the electro-pop group have given fans the track; a song titled “Songs I Can’t Listen To.”

The track is definitely dedicated to those heartbroken folks who can’t listen to certain songs that they used to like because it reminds them of the ones who did the heartbreaking.

Come on, we’ve all been there.

Check out the new track below.

Last year, the band had to cancel a previously planned and announced tour after bassist Branden Campbell had to undergo open-heart surgery for a valve replacement. The doctors requested that Campbell slow down on his rigorous touring schedule, so instead of replacing him, the band just cancelled the complete tour.

But now, eight months later, it looks like things are good enough for the full band to head back on tour because they will be heading out on their “An Intimate Night Out with Neon Trees Tour” beginning on June 6 at the Showbox in Seattle.
