Animal Collective Announce 2012 North American Tour Dates

By Tom Breihan / June 11, 2012

Animal Collective’s new album Centipede Hz is coming in September, and we’ve already heard the early tracks “Honeycomb” and “Gotham.” And soon after that album drops they’ll tour across North America and Europe in the months ahead. The band recently posted a characteristically squiggly video announcing a new run of tour dates across both continents. We’ve got the video (warning: autoplay), as well as the list of those dates, below.
