The Neighbourhood Biography
In early 2012 a mysterious band appeared online. The group, The Neighbourhood, revealed no biographical information, no photos and no backstory. Not long after, pieces of the puzzle, some reflecting reality and some not so much, began to emerge. The Neighbourhood were a quintet: lead singer Jesse Rutherford, guitarists Jeremy Freedman and Zach Abels, bassist Mikey Margott and drummer Mikey Margott. They were from Los Angeles, California USA.
They released a 5-track EP, "I'm Sorry... ", in the spring 2012 and the main single, "Sweater Weather", rose to #1 on The Alternative Songs chart.
The band's debut full album, "I Love You.", followed in the spring of the next year on Columbia Records, reaching a respectable #39 on The Billboard 200 and also hit #20 on the Top Canadian Albums charts.
