Neutral Milk Hotel’s Jeff Mangum makes rare public appearance at NYC Climate Strike

Neutral Milk Hotel frontman Jeff Mangum made a rare public appearance at New York City’s Global Climate Strike on Friday.

Mangum attended the event with his wife, filmmaker Astra Taylor. The couple were photographed at City Hall Park in Manhattan, with Mangum holding a sign reading, “Climate Denial is Death”.

Mangum has kept a relatively low profile since Neutral Milk Hotel wrapped their reunion tour in 2015. Last we heard from him he stoked rumors of a new Neutral Milk Hotel album with a series of cryptic drawings, but ultimately nothing came from it.
