Neon Trees’ Tyler Glenn Bashes Mormon Church in New Video

Neon Trees’ Tyler Glenn Bashes Mormon Church in New Video

Tyler Glenn

“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” 

When Neon Trees lead-singer Tyler Glenn came out in 2014, he proudly talked about being gay and a practicing Mormon, but two years later he singing a different tune.

In his first solo endeavor, Glenn sings out against the strict rules that govern Mormons in daily life. "In all of this I lost myself, maybe I'll see you in hell," he sings.

The entire song and video can be viewed as Glenn being fed up with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and their policy of excommunication of anyone in a same-sex relationship, and expressing himself the best way he knows how.

"The big problem here is that they claim it's the only truth," Glenn told Rolling Stone. "There have been over 40 suicides within the church as a result of this policy. These aren't just grown men and women. Many are children. It's backwards. It's not of God. I needed to make this statement to artfully show the pain of a faith crisis and the darkness of doubt, but also that there's ways to reclaim what is yours."

Watch the video and read what else Glenn had to say about it over at Rolling Stone.
