Neon Trees spoke with FOX 13 in Salt Lake City about the band’s Provo roots, and how the members of the band are asked frequently if they are Mormon. “We’re all raised Mormon. Some of us are still, some of us are not,” singer Tyler Glenn explained. “But we all have affection for the church and we love the morals and principles of it and we still completely integrate that into our band.”
Drummer Elaine Bradley added that those morals have played a large role in keeping the band intact. “Very early on we had a conversation in the band where we said ‘OK guys, not on a moral plane, but as a business, how do we want to conduct ourselves?’ And so we decided unanimously, no drinking, no drugs.”
