ANIMAL COLLECTIVE TO TOUR IN SUPPORT OF NEW ALBUM

‘MERRIWEATHER POST PAVILION' AVAILABLE TODAY

Animal Collective will be embarking on a month long tour this spring in support of Merriweather Post Pavilion.  The album, available now on Domino Records, is Animal Collective's ninth studio album and was recorded with Ben Allen in Oxford, Mississippi. After listening to this record, however, it's clear that Animal Collective have transcended the everyday realities of numbers, locations and people and arrived at a spectacular, unique place.

Animal Collective have made a universal record that makes the same beautiful sense on headphones by day, or soundtracking the small hours of the morning/night, or, you suspect, stretched out in a field on your back. Whether a state of mind, or a rest stop somewhere along the way, Merriweather Post Pavilion magnificently redefines your sense of direction.

********************

“No one who's been looking forward to [Merriweather Post Pavilion] should be disappointed. Everything that's defined the band to this point-- all those strands winding through their hugely diverse catalog-- is refined and amplified here.”  - Pitchfork [9.6/10]

Merriweather Post Pavilion arrives as the group's most focused collection yet. Not because its borders have narrowed. On the contrary, it attains a sprawling, reach-for-the-sky scope. But the songs are more instantly engaging, the melodies pushed to the foreground of the dense, burbling mixes.” - Chicago Tribune
