We’ve recently seen Neutral Milk Hotel frontman Jeff Mangum on tour playing his beloved band's music solo, but now, the full group — featuring Mangum, Jeremy Barnes, Scott Spillane and Julian Koster — has announced plans to hit the road for the first time in 15 years. The trek kicks off in Athens, Ga., on Oct. 22 -- read on for the initial list of dates.

Opening acts for the highly anticipated reunion tour include Elf Power, Half Japanese and Daniel Johnston, and “a portion of concert proceeds and one dollar from every box set will be donated to Children of the Blue Sky and others in need,” according to the band's official site. "More to come and love and respect to all who were there to see Jeff play over the last year!"
