The Neighbourhood (sometimes stylized as "THE NBHD") is an American rock band formed in August 2011. The band is composed of vocalist Jesse Rutherford, guitarists Jeremy Freedman and Zach Abels, bassist Mikey Margott and drummer Brandon Fried. After releasing two EPs, I'm Sorry... and Thank You, the Neighbourhood released their first full length album, I Love You., on April 23, 2013, via Columbia Records.[2] On January 16, 2014, the band revealed via social media that drummer Bryan Sammis was leaving the band.

History[edit]

In early 2012, the Neighbourhood came together to release "Female Robbery" and "Sweater Weather".[3] In May 2012, the band unveiled a self-released free EP titled I'm Sorry.... The debut EP was produced by Justyn Pilbrow.[1]

In December 2012, the Neighbourhood released their second EP entitled Thank You. It included the songs "Let It Go" and "A Little Death".

I Love You. was released on April 23, 2013 and debuted at number 39 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.[4] On June 27, 2013 they performed their lead single "Sweater Weather" on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

"Sweater Weather" topped the charts in early June 2013, reaching number 1 on Billboard '​s alternative chart[5] and breaking the top ten on Billboard Heatseekers chart.[6] Rolling Stone debuted the world premiere of I Love You. on April 16, describing the album as "moody" and "atmospheric".[7] The video for the first official single from I Love You., "Sweater Weather", was released on March 5, 2013.[8] The band is known for their black-and-white imagery, as seen throughout their music, artwork, and videos.[9] The Love Collection comprised the three songs "West Coast", "No Grey", and "Sting". They were each released on 7" vinyls.

The band members chose the British spelling of 'neighbourhood' on the advice of their manager, in order to distinguish themselves from a band already using the American spelling.

In April 2014, the Neighbourhood released the single "Honest" taken from the soundtrack of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014).[10] Around that same time, the band plans on experimenting with a mixtape album titled #000000 & #FFFFFF (the HEX color codes for black and white, respectively).[11]

Touring and performances[edit]

Leading up to the release of their debut album I Love You., the Neighbourhood performed at Coachella 2013.[12]

The Neighbourhood performed their song "Afraid" at a Live Nation sponsored show at SXSW in March 2013.[13]

On April 23, the Neighbourhood announced their summer 2013 tour called The Love Collection Tour along with Lovelife, the 1975, and JMSN.[14]

The Neighbourhood made two appearances in Eastern Canada during the summer of 2013. They played as one of the headliners of Toronto's Edgefest on July 31, 2013, and then a few days later played at Canada's largest music festival, Osheaga, in Montreal on August 4.

The Neighbourhood performed at Atlanta's Music Midtown on September 21, 2013.[17] On June 27, 2013, they performed their lead single "Sweater Weather," in black and white, on Jimmy Kimmel Live. In a press release dated November 15, 2013,[18] it was announced that the Neighbourhood would be performing on "CBS Interactive’s award-winning webcast concert series, Live on Letterman, presented by AT&T," to be presented in black and white on November 19, 2013. On December 8, 2013 they opened at an event called "Not So Silent Night" for Bastille, Arcade Fire, Alt-J, Phoenix and Lorde. Then, just two days later, on December 10, a new track called Silver premiered on BBC Radio 1. They also announced a new project, #000000 & #FFFFFF with a release date sometime during 2014. In January, the band announced a tour that would run through most of March 2014, called Le Tour Noir. Also, in January, the Neighbourhood performed on CBS's "Grammy Gig of a Lifetime" which took place at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. Country singer Barrett Baber opened up for them.

Via a retweet by vocalist Jesse Rutherford[19] it was confirmed the band will be playing a SXSW show on March 12, 2014 at the Palm Door on Sixth in Austin, TX. The show will see support from Woman's Hour, RÁJ, and more with the Neighbourhood billed as headlining.
