Animal Collective – 19 September 2012
by Connor Keller
The Animal Collective, producers of one of 2011′s best albums ‘Merriweather Post Pavilion’ will be doing a worldwide tour starting in September celebrating the release of their newest album ‘Centipede Hz’. Lucky for us, they’ve chosen the Malkin Bowl in Vancouver’s Stanley Park for the second gig of the tour. They recently released two of the tracks off the forthcoming Centipede Hz on the single Honeycomb/Gotham which are available for your listening pleasure at their site here. On the strength of these two, plus MPP, this would be a tour I’d be quite excited to get to. Everything I’ve heard about their live performances suggest the same, they’ve been known to put on a stormer of a show. Add a great act to a great outdoor venue like Malkin Bowl, and you’ve got a perfect summer-ending concert. Tickets will be going on sale soon and for further information, there is a full list of dates and pre-sale information here. There’s also a little preview up on Pitchfork.
