Announcement! Announcement! Baltimore’s experimental wunderkinds and critical favorites Animal Collective return with new material!

The band has released the single “Honeycomb” / “Gotham,” both of which you can listen to down below. The tracks are also available for purchase as an immediate download on the iTunes Store, and they will be physically released on 7″ vinyl from Domino Records on June 26th.

There has been much anticipation to hear new material ever since Animal Collective released their major breakthrough album, 2009’s Merriweather Post Pavilion. The tracks not only imply that there will be a new album from the band on the way, but they also reveal yet another stylistic direction from the band, proving that Animal Collective always has something new up their sleeves. Since the last album’s release, the band has also released the art film ODDSAC and taken over the Guggenheim Museum in New York for an exhibition with frequent collaborator Danny Perez.

Animal Collective will also be performing with Flying Lotus and Huun Huur Tu at the famed Hollywood Bowl right here in Los Angeles on September 23rd. Purchase your tickets here.
