Animal Collective's Avey Tare Announces Debut Album from Slasher Flicks Project

Last spring, Animal Collective member Avey Tare announced that he had joined forces with former Dirty Projectors member Angel Deradoorian and Ponytail drummer Jeremy Hyman for a new band called Slasher Flicks. Now, the trio has announced their debut album.

The record is called Enter the Slasher House, and a press release suggests that "their sound is monstrous and there are nightmarish moments peppering the lyrics and melodies," also referring to the band as a "jazz power trio."

Enter the Slasher House will be available on April 8 via Domino. The album's art is available above, with its lead single "Little Fang" available to stream below.
