Animal Collective announce May/June tour

    The short five-date tour to promote Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion was never going to sate the appetite of fans who rushed out and purchased vinyl copies of the record. So now, in the week that Merriweather finally comes out on CD, Animal Collective has announced a longer May/June tour of North America.

    There will doubtless be a jubilant post-inauguration crowd at tonight’s (Jan. 20) homecoming show at the Grand Ballroom in New York City. Fans across the country will have to wait a little longer to hear the tracks from Meriweather performed live, but listed below are the full dates of the band’s forthcoming tour. The tour ends with an appearance at the ATP festival in upstate New York, which will also feature a rare Panda Bear solo performance.
