Earlier this month we got word that Animal Collective’s Noah Lennox, better known as Panda Bear, was working on a new album tentatively titled Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper. Now, as he did with his previous album Tomboy, Lennox has announced a tour in order to test out new music before it’s released at the end of the year. Throughout May, Lennox will play dates in North America with artists including Peaking Lights, Dâm-Funk, DJ Dog Dick, and Torn Hawk. No solid info on the new album has come out yet, but in a recent interview Lennox indicated that the new album has more in common with Person Pitch than Tomboy and features a great deal of samples. Check out the tour dates below.
