Published Oct 08, 2009Well, it looks as if we're indeed getting a new Animal Collective release, though perhaps not one dubbed Fall Be Kind. Apparently, the AC bros are putting out a new single for Merriweather Post Pavilion's epic "Brother Sport." Yeah, not nearly as exciting as confirmation of a new EP or, better yet, an album, but beggars can't be choosers.
As AC fan forum Collected Animals has pointed out, the release is due out via Domino on December 8, with pre-orders starting here tomorrow (October 9). It will come as a ten-inch and feature live B-side "Bleeding" (formerly called "Bleed"). That's also the cover art above.
Now, as we reported yesterday (October 7), this December 8 release date is the same date listed on Amazon for the mysterious Fall Be Kind. So it's still unclear whether this is just some screw-up on Amazon's part or if Animal Collective are planning to unload two releases on the same day.
C'mon, Domino, pull yourself away from suing Axl and clear this up.
