Neutral Milk Hotel And M. Ward Double Bill Looking Likely, Announcement Imminent

UPDATE: Neutral Milk Hotel, M. Ward & Superchunk co-headline bill announced! More details here.

Soundwave promoter and Australia’s most powerful music industry figure AJ Maddah has hinted at the possibility of a Neutral Milk HotelM. Ward double bill to be touring Australia some time soon. Both acts were slated to be part of the cancelled Harvest Festival lineup.

Maddah first hinted at the possibility while making consolation arrangements with a disappointed fan who’d purchased airfare to make the Harvest event. Unwilling to let down a fan, Maddah insisted the gentleman let Maddah know which make-up dates were suitable and he would be guest-listed.

The fan responded by telling Maddah he would like to see Black Rebel Motorcycle Club when they play Melbourne’s The Billboard. Maddah acquiesced and stated that he and his wife would be there as his guests, until the realisation that BRMC were playing one week after.

“S**t,” replied Maddah, instead suggesting “How about NMH + M Ward show?” After prodding from another fan who asked Maddah “did you just leak double bill of NMH and M Ward?” Maddah all but confirmed the double-bill status of the acts, tweeting “Looks like a double bill.”

Addressing yet another fan’s curiosity, Maddah stated that he was “Hoping to announce in the next 48 hours” the status of Neutral Milk Hotel, who were arguably the biggest draw of Harvest 2013. Maddah also addressed the delayed Warped Tour lineup, labelling it “very imminent!”
