Published Jun 14, 2012Montreal indie kids Plants and Animals released The End of That earlier this year and have just announced a slew of upcoming summer festival dates in their home and native land.
They've also thrown some U.S. shows with Bombay Bicycle Club into the mix at the end of July. The tour kicks off with a free show at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto tomorrow (June 15) for NXNE, before making the rounds at Canadian festivals like Ottawa Bluesfest and Osheaga, then finishing up in L'Assomption, QC at the end of August. See the full list of dates below.
To celebrate the start of the tour, the band have unveiled a new animated short to serve as the music video for "H.C." off the aforementioned The End of That. The clip was produced, directed and animated by Aimée van Drimmelen and features hand drawn artwork blended together with looped Super 8 footage. The results are incredibly nice to look at and you can do just that at the bottom of the page.
