Animal Collective Announce North American Tour

Animal Collective Announce North American Tour
The indie world breathed a sigh of relief a couple of weeks back when art pop favourites Animal Collective finally announced Centipede Hz, the follow-up to their acclaimed 2009 LP Merriweather Post Pavilion that brings member Josh Dibb (aka Deakin) back into the mix. Fans of the band will get to check out the four-piece lineup on stage, too, as the group have just announced a North American tour.

Animal Collective will hit the road a couple of weeks after Domino issues Centipede Hz on September 4, with the first date taking place September 18 at Seattle's Paramount Theatre. The band will play their lone Canadian gig the next day at Vancouver's open-air venue Malkin Bowl, situated in the middle of the city's Stanley Park.

You can check the rest of the dates, including a series of European shows, below.

As a reminder, even though we're still a few months off from Centipede Hz, the band will be releasing the "Honeycomb" / "Gotham" single June 26, and you can stream those songs down below.
